Which Dryer is Right for You: Gas or Electric?
When it comes to choosing a dryer, there are two main contenders: gas and electric. At Mr. Appliance® of Salisbury, we service both options, so let's dive into the differences.
- Electric dryers may have a lower price tag, but the cost of energy can be slightly higher depending on where you live. On the plus side, they're easy to install and can be a greener choice as renewable energy sources become more prevalent.
- Gas dryers require a larger upfront investment but can save you money in the long run (typically after about five years). However, it's important to note that they emit more greenhouse gases and carry a risk of carbon monoxide.
Whether you prioritize cost, environmental impact, or convenience, we're here to help you make the best decision for your needs. Contact us today to learn more about our gas and electric dryer services.

Frequently Asked Questions
Why won't my electric dryer start?
There could be a few reasons: a tripped circuit breaker, unplugged machine, broken start switch, or faulty thermostat.
Why is my electric dryer not heating?
If your electric dryer isn't producing heat, it may be due to a bad fuse, temperature switch, thermostat, or heating coil. These issues often require professional repair.
Why isn't my electric dryer drum spinning?
If the motor is running but the drum isn't turning, it's likely a broken belt. However, a faulty roller, motor, or idler pulley could also be the cause.
Do electric dryers need a vent?
Most electric dryers require a vent to remove warm, moist air and lint. Typically, dryers vent to the outdoors. However, there are ventless electric dryers that function as hot air vacuums, using room-temperature air to dry your clothes.
How can I determine if my dryer is gas or electric?
If your dryer has a heavy-duty electric plug connected to a 220V outlet, it is electric. If there is also a thin stainless steel connector along with the electric wire, it is a gas dryer.
