Replaced “Giant Toaster” Dryer

I replaced my old “giant toaster” dryer with a Samsung vent-free heat pump dryer. Before, the old dryer would rack upwards of 6400+ watts (including whatever other normal devices were on at the time) according to Sense.

With this new dryer in the same scenario, the total household wattage does not go over 950 or so. So we’re talking approximately 1/6 the power consumption versus the old dryer. It’s still to early on for Sense to identify the new dryer specifically; it’s a new category for Sense to figure out.

It's still to early on for Sense to identify the new dryer specifically; it's a new category for Sense to figure out. Today, Sense saw something the app community thinks is a "Heating Pad." Based on the time line, I think that's actually the heat pump dryer. I'll keep watching in the future to see if that's correct.
