One of the important plumbing jobs that our licensed and skilled plumbers handle has nothing to do with the flow of fresh water or waste water in a home. But it does have to do with pipes: it’s the installation and repair of gas piping. These pipes are responsible for transporting natural gas from the gas main to the various appliances in the house. Not every home has a gas connection, but those that do usually make use of this fuel supply to power the heating system (such as a furnace or boiler), the water heater, and kitchen appliances like the oven and stove.
However, if you’re looking for another way to use natural gas in your home, we suggest that you look into the installation of a gas-powered dryer for your laundry.
The Advantages of a Gas-Powered Dryer
Many people aren’t aware that clothes dryers can run off natural gas, but these models are an excellent alternative to the standard electric-powered dryers, especially if you already have gas power available in your home.
The main benefit of installing a gas-powered dryer is that it generally costs less to run than an electrical model. This is because, as you’ve probably discovered with other natural gas appliances, gas is a less expensive energy source than electricity. You can save a good deal of money over the lifetime of the appliance. (Gas prices do fluctuate from region to region, so we can’t give you an exact quote on the difference.)
Another advantage is that gas dryers produce higher levels of heat when running, and this means that they will finish loads quicker. This is both a time-saver for you and also another way that you will save money: the dryer won’t need to run as long.
However, to enjoy a gas-powered dryer, you must have a gas line to the laundry room. If you don’t already have one, call on our plumbers to arrange for the necessary gas line installation. We’re glad to help you arrange for a residential gas dryer.
