How Does a Gas Powered Tumble Dryer Work?

Many of us are familiar with the standard electric vented and condenser type of dryers. The question is, what is a gas dryer? Gas models are normal vented dryers that are powered by gas not electricity. They have to be positioned near a window to vent air away. Gas and electric vented dryers function similarly by heating the drum to dry clothes then venting the moist air out. Gas being the main heating source rather than an electric heating element. Electricity is used to rotate the drum and power the control panel but these costs are minimal amounting to less than 10% of the overall running cost.
