Always Measure Before Purchasing

Dryer Types

Dryer Types

Dryers come in two types that are both powered by electricity but have different heat sources:

  • Electric
  • Gas


Electric Dryer

Electric dryers use their own internal metal coils—which are heated by electricity— to dry clothes. They are generally less expensive to purchase than a gas dryer.
