Hassle-Free Gas Dryer Installations in Houston

For homeowners who are looking for the convenience of a dryer without the high energy costs associated with electric models, gas dryers offer an attractive alternative. Gas dryers use natural gas or propane to heat up and produce hot air that evaporates moisture from clothing more efficiently than electric models. This not only leads to faster drying times but also lower energy bills. As such, investing in a gas dryer is a smart choice that can save you money while providing many years of dependable service.

HOW DO GAS DRYERS WORK?

Gas dryers use a burner to heat up and produce hot air, which is then circulated through the clothing in the drum. The hot air evaporates the moisture from the clothing, resulting in faster drying times than with electric models. The burner heats a metal chamber called an exchanger, which is connected to a blower that circulates the hot air throughout the drum. This system also features an exhaust vent that carries away any lint or dust created during the drying process.

Gas dryers also feature a variety of different settings and options for controlling temperature and drying time, allowing you to customize your experience according to your specific needs. Furthermore, most gas dryers come with safety features such as an automatic shut-off setting that will prevent fires if it gets too hot inside the dryer's chamber.

What Are the Benefits of Installing a Gas Dryer?

Nobody likes doing laundry. It is an unavoidable, tedious chore that everyone would prefer to complete as quickly as possible. That is part of why gas dryers can be so beneficial: Because these units take less time to heat up, they dry clothes faster, allowing you to complete more loads in less time. Though electric dryers tend to cost less to install upfront and will get the job done, they do not necessarily offer all of the same benefits as gas dryers. If you are not sure which type of dryer is right for your home, our Houston gas dryer installation experts can walk you through the pros and cons of each option and help you make an informed decision. 

Gas dryers over several key advantages over electric equivalents, including:

  • Improved energy efficiency. Because we associate electric appliances with “clean” energy, you may be surprised to learn that gas dryers are almost always more energy efficient than their electric counterparts. Gas is an instantaneous heat source that requires less energy to generate, while electricity has to be transferred from a distant power plant and converted into heat. Unless you specifically get your home’s electricity from solar panels or a wind farm, gas dryers are also more environmentally friendly. 
  • Lower energy costs. On average, a gas dryer operates for less time to complete the same job when compared to an electric dryer. Natural gas is also often cheaper than electricity, meaning it costs less to do a load of laundry in a gas dryer than an electric equivalent. This can translate to significant cumulative savings over the years. 
  • Faster drying. Gas dryers get hotter than electric dryers and heat up faster. Put simply, they dry clothes faster, so you will get your laundry done in less time when you use a gas dryer. 

One thing to keep in mind is that it does not generally make financial sense to switch an electric dryer to a gas dryer if a gas line does not already exist in your laundry room. The expenses associated with running a gas line are likely to outstrip the savings you will see from a gas dryer. As such, gas dryers are ideal for new homes or laundry rooms that already have an easily accessible gas line.
