I don’t think it’s allowed in the building code to have unvented dryers.

Or at the very least the building warranty would not permit it.

Or is there a kind of unvented dryer that condenses the water again and puts it down the drain?

Nobody sane is going to allow all that water vapour to stay in your suite.

I can confirm that the dryers are vented.

Those combo washer/dryer systems are generally vent-less. They are pretty much standard in Europe. Vented dryers are even illegal in Switzerland.

 

As an aside to this, I've looked at a couple of units in Essencia Verde (240 Cook Street) that have vent-less dryers. I wonder if the whole building is that way.

Will your charger be separately metered, or how will all of that work, exactly?

Nothing specific was stated, but it will be metered and charged to me. I don't know whether it will be metered separately or combined with the apartment.

Condensation dryers are terrible. They take forever and your clothes never get that dry (but they sure get wrinkled).

Agreed. I had one in a condo that I lived in.

 

A load of towels would take 6 hours to dry and you would still hang them up to finish drying afterwards. It was also super noisy and we would only run it when we were sleeping or out for the day. Then there was the smell of superheating your clothes.

 

A condensing dryer would get any prospective home scratched quickly off my list.

I agree. Like those terrible Dyson hand dryers in public washrooms, there's a lot of sturm und drang but in the end you have to wipe your hands on your pants. And since there's no outside venting, you can't just switch to a conventional washer/dryer set up later (see The Mondrian).

So just to be clear, the dryers at the Wade are conventional and not these ventless things.

The model # of that dryer was posted a few pages back - honestly I'm surprised the developer would go with 24" laundry appliances. Aside from the size, they usually don't perform well and finding replacement units 10 years from now will be as much of a challenge as it is now.

I suspect those are for the smaller units where you’d find the lil’ models.
