With all of the choices of dryers available to you here, how do you know
what is right for you? Here are the most important factors for choosing a dryer
for your home.
The two main types of dryers are electric and gas. Electric dryers are easier to install, but they have a higher operating cost. Gas dryers cost more, but you make your money back with a lower daily cost of use.
If you are considering an electric dryer, your home must have a 240 volt outlet. If you are considering gas, make sure your home has a gas hook-up. You can hire a professional contractor if you want to change the source of your dryer's power.
Consider a compact dryer for a single apartment or a condo, but you will need a large capacity dryer for big families. Be sure to coordinate your dryer with your washer.
