Rinnai gas clothes dryers

Electric clothes dryers consume an enormous amount of energy in drying our clothes and consequently are responsible for producing enormous amount of green house gases. Given our fantastic climate in Australia for drying clothes outdoors, one would wonder why a clothes dryer is necessary.

However given that they are used and loved by a lot of people, Rinnai has the solution, a gas clothes dryer.

Rinnai claims their gas heater produces one quarter of the greenhouse emissions of conventional electric dryers
, are up to 70% more powerful than most electric clothes dryers and by using gas as the heat source rather than electricity, reduce running cost by up to 60%.

They sound like a win-win for both the consumer and the environment.
