Dryer Frequently Asked Questions

I have a natural gas furnace but an electric dryer. Can I switch to a natural gas dryer?

Yes. If natural gas is supplied to your home you can have the gas service extended to your laundry room.

I’ve always liked my electric dryer. I’m worried I won’t like a natural gas dryer.

You will love a natural gas dryer for how much money it saves you in energy and for the way your clothes come out at the end.

What’s the difference between a continuous pilot light and electronic ignition?

They both help start your dryer, but an electronic igniter uses less energy because it is not constantly running.

I have a growing family but the extra large sized dryers seems huge. What should I choose?

With a growing family, the amount of laundry in the coming years will also be growing. Speak to a qualified dryer professional at your retail outlet about your needs to be sure you don’t get a dryer that’s too big or too small.

Should I wait for my old electric dryer to breakdown before I replace it with the natural gas dryer I really want?

That’s a personal decision, but based on the energy your old electric dryer is using, we’d recommend switching soon. You could be spending as much as 75 per cent too much energy drying your clothes and it’s most likely taking a very long time to finish your laundry.

Will my clothes smell like natural gas when they come out of the dryer?

Absolutely not! A natural gas dryer dries your clothes to perfection and they smell clean and fresh!
