Clothes Dryers

Overview

Choose a Natural Gas Clothes Dryer and Save

Natural gas dryers offer savings – both financial and environmental – over electric units.

  • Gas dryers produce a gentle moist heat that reduces wrinkles and static
  • Choose your dryer size based on how often you do laundry 
  • If you do a lot of laundry, you may want a larger drum to hold bigger loads 
  • If don't do many loads in a week, a smaller dryer may give you better heating and tumbling action – choose the size that’s right for you

Dryer maintenance and safety tips

Read your owner's manual to learn the proper maintenance of your specific dryer.

Remember these tips:

  • You must vent your natural gas dryer to the outdoors 
  • Twice a year, check the outside opening of the exhaust vent, where lint can collect and cause a fire – even if you clean the interior lint trap 
  • If your dryer has a hood with a flapper (damper), make sure it opens and closes properly
