In addition to basic maintenance tips and tips you can use before actually starting the dryer, there are a number of tips that you can use to reduce the costs of using your dryer while the clothes are actually being dried. here are a few of those tips:
- When drying heavy items or loads that aren’t quite full, place a clean, dry towel in with the wet load. The dry towel will help absorb moisture cutting down the drying time needed by as much as 25%.
- When drying clothes, factor in the cool-down cycle to allow the clothes to finish drying with the residual heat in the dryer.
- Be sure not to over dry your clothes. If you dryer has a moisture censor or automatic dry cycle, be sure to use it over a timed cycle.
