Gas dryers are not only more efficient compared to electric dryers, they are also a lot gentler on your clothes. We tend to see a lot less lint accumulation in the dryer vents of gas dryers when we’re cleaning the vent, so not only are your clothes are lasting longer, but the vent is more efficient too! It makes sense to have gas dryer installation carried out.
Switch To A Gas Dryer, Dry Clothes Faster & Save Money…
Owning a gas dryer provides quicker drying compared to traditional electric clothes dryers since a higher volume of dry, absorbing air goes through the clothes. With a natural gas dryer, it heats up quickly to full temperature with clean, damp heat that really reduces static and wrinkles. This mild, moist heat can mean less need to use fabric softeners. Additionally, natural gas dryers are more efficient; running costs are half of what it costs for an electric dryer.
The only choice that’s more affordable is hanging your clothes outside to dry naturally!

Energy and time saving tips:
Try to run only full loads in the dryer and washer. Drying only small loads uses as much gas as a full load, but don’t overload the gas dryer as that will increase drying time.
Don’t over dry your clothes. Over drying clothes wastes natural gas and can result in a harsher feel to clothing. By using the shortest cycle available will reduce over drying issues.
Clean out the lint trap after every use, the lint trap only catches 30% of lint, the remaining is trying to get out through the dryer vent.
Check the dryer vent and the outside vent cap from time to time ensuring the louvres are free from lint, and they open and close properly. A clothes dryer must vent outdoors.
