Clothes Dryers

Long gone are the days of hanging your laundry on clothing lines in your backyard, which is a good thing considering the unpredictable weather in Upstate New York. Our winters are simply too cold to even attempt to dry our clothes outside. Even in the warmer seasons, you never know when a rainstorm will disrupt your day. This is why most people choose to use a clothes dryer to dry their clothes. Not only are clothes dryers quick and easy to use, but they leave your clothes feeling nice and soft, given that you use a proper fabric softener. Were you aware that your clothes dryer uses about 6 percent of your home’s total energy usage? Keeping this in mind, you want to use the most energy-efficient dryer available to cut costs and to reduce your carbon footprint on the environment.

Propane Dryers

Generally, propane-powered dryers will cost about $50-100 more upfront than an electric-powered clothes dryer. Despite this initial setback, propane clothes dryers are considered an excellent investment for homes and businesses. First of all, propane dryers dry clothes faster and more efficiently than electric clothes dryers. Compared to electric clothes dryers, propane dryers will save you about 20 percent in energy costs per year. The capacities range from 18,000 BTUs (British Thermal Units) per hour to 30,000 BTU per hour, which means that they provide faster drying times than electric dryers.

Not only do propane-powered dryers dry clothes faster, but they also dry clothes better. Propane-powered dryers produce more moisture in the air than electric dryers, which helps them to relax wrinkles. Many propane-powered dryers include moisture sensors, which help prevent you from over drying your clothes, which saves you even more energy and makes your clothes last longer.

How Can I Make My Dryer As Efficient As Possible?

One of the easiest ways in which to increase the efficiency of your dryer is to check the lint filter before you run a load of laundry. If there’s lint in the filter, then clean it out. Clean filters allow for better air circulation, which increases overall efficiency. You also want to check your dryer ventilation to make sure that there are no blockages. Also make sure that you never overload your dryer, which will decrease its efficiency.

By switching to a propane-powered clothes dryer, you can save a significant amount of money while reducing your environmental impact. Contact DiSanto Propane today to get started with your propane services in New York.
