Heat Pump Dryers

Replace your conventional gas dryer with a high-efficiency heat pump dryer and watch your energy use tumble — by at least 28%. 

Gentler on the environment, gentler on your home, gentler on your clothing and gentler on your wallet — heat pump dryers are a win, win, win.

Description

Replace your gas dryer with a high efficiency heat pump dryer for energy savings and get cash back from BayREN — up to $300.

Heat pump dryers recycle air through an evaporator to remove moisture without losing heat. They use less electricity and are easy to install since they don't require ventilation.

Your new dryer must replace an existing natural gas clothes dryer and be listed as ENERGY STAR Efficient heat pump clothes dryer.
