A standard 5kg clothes dryer costs around $1.05 per load if you use it during the colder months*.
When considering investing in a clothes dryer, here's some great tips:
- Make sure your dryer is vented to the outside so the moisture doesn't make the house damp.
- Try not to use indoors airing racks or clothes dryers that vent into your house. The moisture in the clothes will end up in your home.
- If you’re going to use your dryer regularly, look for a model with an auto-sensing feature. Auto-sensing prevents over-drying which saves electricity and is also better for your clothes.
- Thoroughly spin-dry the clothes in your washing machine first. It takes a lot less electricity to spin water out of clothes than it does to heat it out.
- Clean the lint filter on your dryer after each load.
