Many customers prefer the performance and feel of cooking with propane vs electric appliances. In addition, a propane clothes dryer is gentler on fabrics than electric models. Cooking and drying with propane is the exact same as using a natural gas appliance that so many homeowners are familiar with.
Some customers who have multiple uses in their home for propane besides just cooking/drying also can find significant savings versus using electricity. In terms of annual operating costs, a propane cooking/drying only account will spend about 60¢ per day to operate their appliances. If your entire home is fueled by propane, the cost will be even lower.
In order to help you further weigh the decision to add propane cooking or drying, the average installation cost for such an appliance in a home without propane service ranges from $400-700 per appliance.
