The True Cost of Drying Clothes

What is the cost to run my clothes 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 let's assume an average cost per load is $0.30. If you do three loads of clothes a day, it will cost about $0.90 per day, if your dryer is working correctly..

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