Gas vs. Electric Dryer: What You Need to Know
When it comes to choosing a dryer, you have two main options: gas or electric. At Mr. Appliance® of Coastal Carolina, we offer services for both types.
Let's dive into the main differences between the two:
- Electric dryers may have a lower initial cost, but the energy costs can be slightly higher depending on where you live. However, they are easier to install and may even produce fewer emissions over time as renewable energy sources become more prevalent.
- Gas dryers run on natural gas or propane. While they may have a higher upfront cost, they are more economical in the long run (typically after around five years). It's worth noting that gas dryers emit more greenhouse gases and can pose a carbon monoxide risk.
Whether you prioritize cost efficiency or environmental impact, we're here to help you make the right choice for your needs. Contact Mr. Appliance® of Coastal Carolina today to learn more about our gas and electric dryer services.

Frequently Asked Questions
Troubleshooting Common Issues with Electric Dryers
My electric dryer won't start. What could be the problem?
Possible causes for your electric dryer not starting include a tripped circuit breaker, an unplugged machine, a broken start switch, or a faulty thermostat.
Why is my electric dryer not heating up?
If your electric dryer is not producing heat, it may indicate issues with the fuse, temperature switch, thermostat, or heating coil. These problems typically require professional repair, and you can rely on Mr. Appliance® of Coastal Carolina for assistance.
What could be causing the drum of my electric dryer not to turn?
When the motor is running but the drum fails to spin, a broken belt is often to blame. However, a faulty roller, motor, or idler pulley could also be the culprit.
Is a vent necessary for electric dryers?
Most electric dryers require a vent to remove the warm, moist air and lint. Typically, dryers vent to the outdoors. However, there are electric "ventless dryers" available that function as hot air vacuums, pulling in room-temperature air, heating it, and circulating it through your wet laundry to dry your clothes.
How can I determine if my dryer is gas or electric?
If your dryer has only one cord, a heavy-duty electric plug connected to a 220V outlet, it is an electric dryer. However, if there is an additional thin connector, usually stainless steel, alongside the electric wire, you have a gas dryer.
