    Default GAS DRYER QUESTION

    Does anyone know, how a gas dryer works, in usage at temperature settings. Would it be cheaper to run towels on medium heat vs high? Thanks!

    will drying your towels at medium heat dry them in 1 cycle?

    from what i can figure out from google searches, the gas runs long enough to get the air to the set temerature and then turn off until it drops 20 - 30 degrees below that temperature and then starts flowing again to heat the air.

    i would guess that if you have it set to teh higher temp it would have to flow longer at first to heat the air to that temp but i don't know if it would have to run more often to to keep it at the higher temp.
