Our Energy Saving Tips Will Save Time and Money

  1. Separate clothes for drying purposes. Lightweight synthetics dry much faster than bath towels or natural fiber materials such as denim.
  2. Don't over-dry clothes. Take clothes out while they are still slightly damp. This will reduce the need for ironing.
    Over-drying also causes shrinkage, increases static electricity, and shortens fabric life.
  3. Dry two or more loads in a row. Take advantage of the heat still in the dryer from the first load.
  4. Don't add wet items to a load that is partially dry. This will cause the dryer to run longer. Dry full loads when possible. Drying small loads wastes energy.
  5. Clean the lint trap after each load. A clogged lint trap will restrict airflow and reduce dryer performance.
  6. Check the vent to the outside. Proper ventilation is important for the proper operation of your dryer. Keep it clean and free from obstruction.
  7. Use a "solar clothes dryer" - hang clothes outdoors. In good weather, take advantage of the sun. it's free.
  8. Read our Signs Your Dryer Vent Needs Cleaning.

What is the cost running my dryer?

Gas dryers cost approximately $60 more to purchase initially, but natural gas is usually less expensive than electricity, so gas dryers will cost less to operate.

Depending on your utility, drying a load of laundry cost between 32 to 41 cents in an electric dryer, or 15 to 33 cents in a gas dryer.

So lets assume and average cost per load is $0.30. I f you do 3 loads a day it will cost about $0.90 per day, if your dryer is working properly.

Learn how much your dryer costs and how much you can SAVE when your dryer is working properly.
