Choosing a Dryer
A clothes dryer is one of those modern conveniences that most families just can’t do without. Sure, there’s always the old clothes line and sun-drying method, but seriously, who has the time for that these days? So, if you’re looking to purchase a replace a dryer, one thing you’ll need to consider is whether you want one powered by electricity or natural gas.
All clothes dryers work in pretty much the same way; they use a small electric motor to turn a large drum which holds the clothes. Air is then heated using either an electric coil or gas flame and then forced into the drum as the clothes are turned. The heated air is vented out of the drum, carrying the moisture from the clothes and eventually drying them.
