Beside this, how much does it cost to convert gas dryer to electric?
The price of natural gas, however, is generally lower than electricity (depending on where you live, of course, and other variables). Depending on your rates, drying a load can cost between 32-41 cents per load in an electric dryer and 15-33 cents in a gas dryer.
Furthermore, which is better electric or gas dryer? Gas dryers run hotter than electric dryers, which reduces drying time and costs over time. For a typical family that dries 5 loads of laundry per week, the average electric dryer will cost, on average, $130 per year while the same dryer in gas would cost about $85 per year to operate.

Can you run a gas dryer on propane?
Gas dryers are factory-equipped for natural gas. Most gas dryers can be converted for Liquid Propane (LP) gas, which requires an optional conversion kit. Commercial dryers convert the same as retail models. The conversion instructions are included with the LP kit, which is purchased separately if one is needed.
