DRYERS

The more laundry you do, the more you'll appreciate a natural gas dryer. Unlike electric dryers, natural gas dryers provide instant heat. That means your laundry will be done faster. Today's natural gas dryers use electronic ignition systems (instead of a continuously burning pilot light) for additional savings and energy conservation. And when natural gas dryers shut off, the heat stops immediately.

Sizing:

Natural gas clothes dryers range in size from 24 inches to 29 inches and generally come in three different drum sizes: compact, regular/large and extra large. Compact natural gas dryers require only about five square feet of space. Often, a stackable washer/dryer unit may provide the best fit for small laundry rooms.

Venting and Exhausting:

Natural gas dryers must be vented/exhausted to the outdoors. Clothes dryers should never be exhausted into the home because humid air could cause condensation that might damage the structure. The technician who installs your natural gas dryer should use the straightest, shortest duct pipe for venting.
