Gas vs. Electric Dryer: Choosing the Right Option

When it comes to dryers, there are two main types to consider: gas and electric. At Mr. Appliance® of Urbandale, we provide services for both options.

Here are the key differences between gas and electric dryers:

  • Electric dryers have a lower upfront cost, but the energy expenses can be slightly higher depending on your local rates. They are also easier to install and may have a smaller environmental impact as renewable energy sources replace coal and natural gas over time.
  • Gas dryers run on natural gas or propane. While they come with a higher initial price tag, they prove to be more economical in the long run (typically after about five years). However, they emit more greenhouse gases and carry a risk of carbon monoxide exposure.

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.

What should I do if my electric dryer is not heating?

If your electric dryer isn't producing heat, it may indicate a problem with the fuse, temperature switch, thermostat, or heating coil. These issues usually require professional repair from experts like Mr. Appliance® of Urbandale.

Why is the drum of my electric dryer not turning?

When the motor is running but the drum doesn't spin, it's likely due to a broken belt. However, it could also indicate problems with the roller, motor, or idler pulley.

Is a vent necessary for electric dryers?

Most electric dryers need a vent to expel warm air and lint. Typically, dryers vent to the outdoors. However, there are "ventless dryers" that use hot air vacuums and recirculate room-temperature air to dry clothes.

How can I determine if my dryer is gas or electric?

To determine whether your dryer is gas or electric, check for two things: a heavy-duty electrical plug (220V) indicates an electric dryer. If there's also a thin stainless steel connector alongside the electrical wire, you have a gas dryer.
