Idea for a dryer, for a lower instantaneous consumption

And if they were repairing rather than throwing and change? Rediscover the pleasure of the repairs yourself. How to diagnose a problem or find spare parts? Repair itself is way to save money generally!

Idea for a dryer, for a lower instantaneous consumption

Another dumb idea, no doubt....

I have solar panels, not many, and the production is much less than what the dryer takes....

But a washing machine does not constantly take the maximum power.

It heats up fully, then stops at the temperature reached, then heats up a lot, etc....

The idea would be to limit the instantaneous power to 500W max...
With something like this...

Haven't looked for the cheapest yet....

Perhaps the best would be to authorize, for example 5-10 mn the maximum power, so that it heats up, and then to limit ... history that the drying time remains about the same ....

What do you think about it ?

ME, I think it would make it possible not to use much on the network, when it would be easier to put it outside to dry and consume nothing...
But that's too complicated to explain to my wife.... : Arrow:
