Natural Gas Dryers - How to Maximize Your Dryer's Efficiency

Energy Efficient Natural Gas DryersAs they say, time is money. This couldn’t be truer than in the laundry room. The less time your clothes spend drying in the dryer the less energy use. Here are some easy tips to take your clothes from wet to dry in an energy efficient way!

  • Shake out wet clothes before placing them in the dryer.

  • Avoid over-drying your clothes. Use the automatic sensor control or experiment with your dryer's timer to determine how long it takes to dry a typical load. Reduce the drying time for lighter loads.

  • Drying partial loads wastes energy. Try to organize your washing and drying so that you are always doing full loads.

  • "Perma-press" drying cycles offer a "cool-down" feature that finishes the job and prevents heat-set wrinkles by using residual heat from the dryer.

  • Dry consecutive loads to take advantage of retained heat

  • Check the dryer exhaust ducts periodically to ensure there is no build-up of lint

  • Ensure the venting through the outside wall does not become clogged

  • Clean the lint trap after each use to ensure maximum operating efficiency.

  • Have your dryer installed by a certified heating contractor
