For this post, I have put together a collection of the best heated clothes airers currently available.
MY TOP PICK:
My preferred pick for best heated clothes airer is the 3-Tier Heated Airer from Dunelm as I really like the heated shoe rack feature and the airer also folds away neatly when not in use.
A heated clothes airer can make getting your clothes dry in the winter a breeze. As well as being cheaper to run than a tumble dryer, it’s also more environmentally friendly and will save you having to hang your laundry all over the radiators. Ideally it would be great to dry our washing outdoors all year round, but unfortunately the good old British weather doesn’t lend itself to this.
We’ve scoured the market to find 8 of the best heated clothes airers, which will make drying your washing that much easier! Especially during the winter months.

What to consider when buying a heated clothes airer
Heated clothes airers range from @ £40-£280 so they cater to most budgets. They are a wise investment if you do a lot of indoor drying, especially if you don’t have garden space. They will dry your clothes quickly and will cost a lot less than running a tumble dryer.
As this is a functional product you probably want to consider how much drying space you will need and where you will set up the clothes airer over what it will look like. You will want one which fits within your home and will adequately hold your washing.
A cover isn’t essential, as the clothes will still dry using the heat alone but it will decrease the overall drying time by quite a bit. Drying clothes indoors can also make the room damp and create mould spores, so a cover will reduce this problem.
I hope this list of the best heated clothes airers was helpful.
