Using your clothes dryer regularly will send your energy bills skyrocketing. It's best to use a clothes line or drying rack, though sometimes it's hard to avoid turning on the dryer.
Investing in an energy-efficient gas or electric clothes dryer is a great way to cut down on your energy use.
You may be eligible for an Energy Saver Incentive if you buy:
- a gas clothes dryer that is certified by an accredited body, like the Australian Gas Association
- an electric clothes dryer with a 5-star energy rating or above.
