Gas vs. Electric Dryer: What You Need to Know
When it comes to choosing a dryer, you have two main options: gas or electric. Here's what you should consider:
- Electric dryers may have a lower upfront cost, but the energy bill might be slightly higher depending on where you live. On the bright side, they're easier to install and may have a smaller environmental impact as renewable energy becomes more prevalent.
- Gas dryers, on the other hand, require a higher initial investment, but they're more cost-effective in the long run (usually after five years). However, they emit more greenhouse gases and carry a carbon monoxide risk.
Whether you prioritize affordability, convenience, or sustainability, Mr. Appliance® of Scottsdale & East Valley can provide service for both types of dryers.

Frequently Asked Questions about Electric Dryers
Why won't my electric dryer start?
If your electric dryer isn't starting, it could be due to a tripped circuit breaker, an unplugged machine, a broken start switch, or a faulty thermostat.
Why is my electric dryer not heating?
If your electric dryer isn't producing heat, it may be a result of a bad fuse, temperature switch, thermostat, or heating coil. These issues usually require professional repair.
Why isn't the drum of my electric dryer turning?
When the motor is running but the drum isn't spinning, the most likely cause is a broken belt. However, a faulty roller, motor, or idler pulley could also be to blame.
Do electric dryers need a vent?
Most electric dryers require a vent to expel warm, moist air and lint. The majority of dryers vent to the outdoors. However, there are ventless electric dryers that extract room-temperature air from the laundry room, heat it, and use it to dry your clothes.
How can I determine if my dryer is gas or electric?
To identify if your dryer is gas or electric, check for a heavy-duty electric plug (220V) as the sole connection. If there's also a thin stainless steel connector in addition to the electric wire, then it's a gas dryer.
