Ok but you do understand that water evaporates at a nonlinear rate versus delta T right? Most all dryers cycle around 160 to 175 degF exhaust temperature so they don't take 3 hours to dry a load. You know what happens to heat pump performance at these condensing temps right? If you're doing an airside pump and dump, you may be better off just preheating your dryer suction air. Let the electric element finish the job downwind from the condenser.
