Natural Gas Dryers
- Energy Efficient Features
Before you buy your natural gas dryer:
the most energy efficient dryer you can and ensure it has moisture
sensors that will turn it off when the clothes are dry. A dryer that
runs longer than necessary uses more energy than necessary.
Ensure you are buying the
best sized dryer for your home. Too big, too small, they’re both going
to be inefficient and more expensive to run.
On laundry day:
There are many ways to make your natural gas dryer more efficient, try
some of the suggestions and enjoy welcome savings on your energy bill:
Separate lightweight easy
to dry fabrics from heavyweight hard to dry fabrics so drying times are
consistent in the load
Try to avoid overloading
the dryer, clothes must be able to tumble freely for the fastest dry
On the other hand, avoid
drying less than full loads.
Dry loads one after another
to take advantage of the heat already in the dryer
Don’t add wet items to
partially dried loads
Try to keep the door closed
on the dryer to keep the heat in.
Clean the lint screen
before every new load
Install your dryer in a
warm area, drying time is longer in an unheated garage or utility room
