Gas vs. Electric Dryer: Which is Better?
When it comes to dryers, there are two main types: gas and electric. At Mr. Appliance® of Georgetown, we service both options.
Let's explore the key differences:
Electric Dryers - They cost less initially, but their energy consumption can be slightly more expensive depending on your local rates. However, they are easier to install and tend to produce fewer emissions, especially as renewable energy sources replace coal and natural gas over time.
Gas Dryers - This type of dryer runs on natural gas or propane. While they have a higher upfront cost, they prove to be more economical in the long run (typically after about five years). However, it's worth noting that gas dryers emit more greenhouse gases and pose a carbon monoxide risk.
Make an informed decision based on these factors when choosing between a gas or electric dryer for your needs. At Mr. Appliance® of Georgetown, we're here to assist you with whichever option you choose.

Frequently Asked Questions
Why won't my electric dryer start?
Possible causes include a tripped circuit breaker, unplugged machine, broken start switch, or faulty thermostat.
What should I do if my electric dryer isn't heating?
This could indicate issues with the fuse, temperature switch, thermostat, or heating coil. Professional repair is recommended.
Why is the drum of my electric dryer not turning?
If the motor is running but the drum isn't spinning, it's likely due to a broken belt. However, a faulty roller, motor, or idler pulley could also be the problem.
Are vents necessary for electric dryers?
Most electric dryers require a vent to remove warm air and lint. Typically, they vent outdoors. "Ventless dryers" exist as well and function by pulling room-temperature air from the laundry room, heating it up, and directing it through tumbling wet laundry.
How can I determine if my dryer is gas or electric?
If your dryer has only one cord connecting it to a 220V outlet, it's an electric dryer. If there's also a thin stainless steel connector in addition to the electric wire, you have a gas dryer.
