Get More Than Just Dry Clothes with a Gas Dryer from JCPenney
It's time to buy yourself a brand-new dryer, and you've made the cost-saving, environmentally friendly choice of a natural gas dryer. All dryers have the same basic inner workings. A small electric motor turns the drum that tumbles your clothes, while an electric fan distributes the heated air. The big difference between a gas dryer and an electric one is where all that heat comes from.
The average family that dries one load of laundry in a gas dryer every day will save about $70 a year over a traditional electric dryer. Just remember: If you don't already have a gas line installed in your home, it can be quite expensive to add the necessary connections. Talking with a gas appliance specialist will help streamline the processes of installing your new dryer.
