Loving the Performance of Propane-Powered Dryers

- 11:30 am - August 4th, 2021


Did you know that propane-powered clothes dryers are not only efficient, but high-performing too?

It’s true. And there’s never been a better time to buy. But let’s talk efficiency first.

Excellent Energy Efficiency

According to the federal government’s Energy Star consumer education program, a clothes dryer is often the most energy-hungry appliance in a home, even beating out the refrigerator. 

The good news is that propane dryers are more efficient than their electric counterparts. Most propane-powered models heat up much faster and create more overall heat, meaning clothes dry quicker. Similar to an electric range, an electric dryer takes longer to reach drying temperature and it doesn’t get as hot, meaning that it has to run longer and use more electricity.

This often translates to 20 percent in energy costs compared to electric dryers. The propane dryer’s higher heating capacity, shorter cycle times and features like pilotless ignition all contribute to the efficiency goal.

What about the carbon footprint of propane-powered clothes dryer? Good news! Compared with an electric dryer, a propane model saves nearly a ton of CO2 over its lifetime.

So for those looking to cut back their electric bill and help the environment, a propane dryer makes great sense. 

Premium Propane Performance 

Now let’s get back to performance. Propane dryers just work better.

Not only do they dry faster, they also produce hot air with more moisture than electric dryers, which can help relax wrinkles in the clothes. This means you’re less likely to reach for that (electric-powered) iron after a drying cycle, saving time and hassle.

Working better also means working smarter.

Propane dryers have all the latest innovations such as steam cycles to de-wrinkle and freshen garments, drum lights to better see into the unit, and LCD control screens for ease of use. Moisture sensors, timed drying cycles prevent over-drying of clothes — thereby saving additional energy and keeping the cycle time to a minimum. Pilotless ignitions mean that gas is only burned when the dryer is running, an added benefit for safety and efficiency. 

Innovation and performance are hallmarks of the other propane-powered appliances in the laundry room. Many customers have the a “laundry room trifecta,” using a propane clothes dryer, clothes washer, and propane tankless water heater to optimize convenience, efficiency and performance.
