on dryer costs?

"And every Yom Kippur I always skip one
meal ... It makes me feel more Jewish."

Maybe you've heard an electric dryer costs more, per load, to
operate than a gas dryer.
But, compare original dryer cost. Model for model, you pay $20
to $40 less for an electric dryer.
And you get Free Installation on newly purchased electric dryers,
except venting, on Edison lines up to and including four-family flats.
And No Charge Repair Service. No charge on electric parts or
labor. You can't get free protection on a gas dryer; if you have to
replace the motor on one, it can wipe out whatever small per-load
savings you may have accumulated.
So when you hear about the pennies per load you might save
with a gas dryer, think about the dollars you save over the life of
an electric dryer.
