Hooking Up Your Laundry To Gas

Want to know how you can save money on your laundry’s energy bill? If your home is hooked up to natural gas you have the option to install a gas-powered dryer instead of an electric. Both systems have their pros and cons, but as a dryer is a long-term investment, both are worth considering.

Gas Dryer


  • Lower energy bills, making them cheaper long term
  • If gas is installed throughout your property, installation is simple and inexpensive
  • A more eco-friendly option
  • Select models dry clothes quicker than an electric powered dryer


  • Bigger upfront installation costs
  • Gas dryers are less commonly found than electrical dryers
  • If gas is not installed throughout your property, installation is expensive and riskier as natural gas will have to be hooked up to the property
  • If a vent does not exist, it will have to be installed – unfortunately not all apartments and units can install a new vent

Electrical Dryer


  • Readily accessible ‘Energy Star’ ratings making choosing a model easier
  • Electrical dryers can be installed in any property
  • Cheaper upfront installation costs
  • No need for vents – convenient for multifamily and small homes


  • A more expensive option long term
  • Not as environmentally friendly as gas
  • Requires emptying of condensation tray
  • An electrician is often required to install an additional 240-volt outlet for the dryer
