Natural gas dryer: 4 reasons to make it your first choice!
Doing the laundry is one of those chores that takes time and has an impact on your budget, particularly when it comes to changing your dryer. When shopping around, the main things you look for are the price of the appliance, its capacity or its style, and maybe even the possibility of a wrinkle-free option. But what about the dryer’s energy source? This is an important factor to consider even before you buy, and here’s why.
- For a load that heats up and dries quickly! Natural gas dryers take less time to achieve optimal results as they have a burner to generate heat. Electric components cannot generate as much heat as a burner. This means you’ll get done with your laundry faster than expected!
- Unequal comfort! By reducing the drying time, naturally, you reduce the wear and tear on your clothes. A natural gas dryer dissipates the heat faster, which reduces wrinkling. You may even be able to get rid of that ironing board! And what’s more, you’ll be delighted to see that a natural gas dryer produces less static electricity than an electric model.
- Efficience! Now you know that a natural gas dryer is more efficient because it takes less time to achieve the desired result. At the risk of being repetitive, you also know that natural gas costs less than electricity, so if you’re looking for long-term savings, look no farther than a natural gas dryer.
- Receive a $150* cash incentive when you install a natural gas dryer! You can find high-end electric dryers that cost the same as a high-end natural gas dryer. But then consider checking for discounts and cash incentive. After all, you’re looking at the household appliance that’s the biggest energy hog in your home. So be sure to ask questions and opt for efficient solutions.
In addition to the above benefits, you should be aware that a natural gas dryer needs to be hooked up to the natural gas supply and requires a standard 110/115-volt outlet for the drum, fan, lamps and buttons. An electric dryer requires a 240-volt outlet. If you end up choosing a natural gas appliance, it is very important that you get a certified technician to install the natural gas line and connect the appliance.
