Natural Gas Dryers

Introducing the natural gas dryer of the 21st century.

Many people are looking for ways to save time, add convenience, and protect their clothing when it comes to doing the laundry. In recent years, enhanced aesthetics and sound dampening designs have brought washers and dryers out of the basement. The trend today is toward bringing laundering appliances into the living space. Bedrooms and baths are where laundry is most likely to accumulate. The appliances of the twenty first century fit into even the most high traffic areas. Gas dryers are economical and efficient. They fluff and freshen your washables with less wrinkling and shrinkage.

Advantages

  • High-efficiency natural gas dryers dry your clothes quickly and for less money than electric models. They also produce less static cling.
  • When a gas dryer turns off, the heat dissipates quickly, reducing the amount of wrinkling. That’s an important feature if you can’t fold the clothes right away.
  • Gas dryers sense when your clothes are dry, which saves energy and reduces the risk of shrinkage. That’s because many models measure the heat and moisture levels throughout the drying cycle. The machine automatically shuts off when the load is done.
  • Some models signal when the clothes are dry and continue to tumble without heat, allowing you more time to fold the load.
  • Gas dryers now offer touch controls, digital displays, and microcomputer based temperature settings for sensitive fabrics.
  • Many new dryers feature surgical grade stainless steel drums. Tumbling your clothes on this hygienic, smooth surface protects them from snagging.

Operating cost

  • Natural gas is less expensive than electricity. Initial purchase price is an important consideration, but don’t discount the dryer’s operating and servicing costs.
  • Operating costs, warranty coverage and availability of parts and service at competitive prices are as important to consider as the purchase price.
  • A gas dryer lasts a long time—up to 13 years or more.

Energy consumption/efficiency

  • Today’s gas dryers use less energy than older models.
  • Consumers can save over half of their operating costs by replacing their old gas dryers with new, energy-efficient models.

Load size

Select the dryer size that best meets your family’s needs. A dryer that is too small will be slow and inefficient. One that is greatly oversized may not tumble small loads properly. The wrong choice can result in excessive wrinkling, poor operation of moisture sensors and wasted energy.

Gas dryers generally offer three drum capacities:

  • Compact: These units are designed to fit in small areas and can be purchased with companion washers. They include stacking models for apartment and condo living.
  • Regular/Large: Drum volumes are generally under six cubic feet, a capacity that matches standard or large sized washers.
  • Extra Large: Drum volumes are as large as seven cubic feet, which matches the capacity of extra large washers.
  • Over time your natural gas dryer will more than pay for itself in fuel savings, fabric friendly operation and reliable, trouble free performance.
