20 yr. old gas dryer

Is a 20-25 yr. old gas dryer efficient at all. It seems to work fine, but would a new dryer make a big difference. Thanks.

Hello: dfor

I doubt there would be any energy saved between a new machine and the current one. Energy used would still be the same since the burner ratings would be the same.

Most new dryers are between 18 to 22,000 btu's. Check and compare using the rating plate on your machine. The plate will be in the door jam frame.

If the seals and gaskets on your current machine are still in decent condition, not much energy will be saved if any. If the seals and gaskets are worn and leaky, some savings may be made but not enough to lower a monthly gas bill.
