This change is has made the contemporary drier more energy efficient.
In household clothes dryers, either electricity or gas are being used to heat the moisture out of the clothes. But a more efficient would be gas dryers. However, installing such appliances might mean putting in a new gas supply thus, adding more costs to one’s budget. Gas dryers typically cost slightly higher compared to electric dryers.

However, several buyers go for a more-compact models that can fit under a laundry room counter which is usually just about 24 inches. There are also top loading models that are available in the market. The cheapest dryers would usually cots around 250 USD. Prices of dryers which have bigger brand names are about 900 USD.
