How much energy does a propane clothes dryer use?
posted by Leta to home & garden (1 answer total)
I am shocked at how ungoogleable this information is. A gas dryer (in this case, the fuel is propane, not NG) has two fuels that it consumes: gas, to make heat, and electricity, to move the drum. I cannot find information on either how much gas or how much electricity the typical gas dryer uses per cycle. We are looking at moving, and, in order to estimate utility costs in the new location, I'd like to be able to figure this out.
(Yes, I do line dry outdoors, but for 5-6 months out of the year, I need a dryer.)
