​Natural gas dryers can help save you time and money. 


Instant heat, instant savings

Compared to standard electric models, a natural gas dryer heats up instantly and dries clothes faster – giving you more time for things besides laundry. Plus, you could see up to 45 per cent savings in dryer energy costs per year.*

Gentle on clothes

Natural gas dryers produce a gentle heat. Some models are equipped with moisture sensors that help prevent over-drying your clothes – reducing static cling and wrinkles.

How a natural gas dryer works

Natural gas and electric dryers have similar operating mechanisms, except for the heating unit. When a natural gas dryer is turned on, electronic ignition lights a burner and the air is heated by a flame instead of an element. The warmed air circulates around the tumbling load of clothes, picks up moisture and passes through a lint trap before it's sent outside through an exhaust duct.

Before you buy

  • Think about where the dryer will be located
  • What are the dimensions of the space where it will be installed?
  • Where will the dryer be exhausted?
  • How much capacity do you need?
  • Which direction does the door need to swing?
  • Can you choose a stacked washer and dryer in the space you have?
