Can you convert a gas dryer to an electric dryer?
Sorry to say, a conversion like this would not be either cost effective nor practical. They are very different, you are talking about electric elements versus actual flames. There are venting and fire safety issues to consider. You may have heard of dryer conversion kits or of others that have converted a dryer. If you have, what they are referring to is converting a natural gas dryer to a propane dryer or a propane dryerto anatural gas dryer. This is a relatively simple process unlike what a conversion of gas to electric or vice versa would consist of. Two options: Sell the gas dryer and use whatever proceeds it makes towards the purchase of a new electric dryer. If there is gas anywhere in the house, contact a licensed plummer and get an estimate to run a gas line to the dryer location.

Save Money with your Gas Dryer?
Due to the weak economy and rising oil prices, many people are looking for any way possible to cut their utility bills. One way to cut your overall utility costs would be to find ways to save money with your gas dryer. If your dryer works using gas heat, you could save a lot of money by ensuring that the filter is always cleaned out. If your filter on your dryer is not cleaned out, then the heat will not pass through the dryer as easily, and you will need to run your dryer for a longer period of time to dry your clothes.

Can you run a gas line to a BBQ grill that uses bottled propane or is that a different kind of grill?
If you have a grill that uses bottled propane, you can have a gas line run directly to it. You'll want to hire a pro to do the job for you so that the installation is a safe one. Most areas require that gas lines be run by plumbers and then approved by an inspector. Most gas grills use propane as fuel, running a gas line to the grill would not be enough. There are grill conversion kits to make your propane grill run off of the natural gas line in your home. These kits can be found at most stores that sell or service grills.
How many volts does your electric clothes dryer usually run on?

Can you convert a propane bbq to a natural gas bbq?
Natural gas and propane are crompressed at different pressures so the require differnt orifices for burners to meter the gas. There are some logistical problems, natural gas tanks are much bulkier than propane and are much less convenient to refill and weigh more for equal volume, this is the reason campers run on propane. Also, hooking to your house gas if you were able to change the orifice would seem dangerous, most CNG things in your house are effectively permanent (water heater, stove, dryer) they arent outside and the dont move. Could you convert it? Yes. Would it be worth the time, effort, and risk? No
How do you convert a gas dryer hookup to an electric dryer hookup?
Very carefully, of course. You need to calculate the power in watts in the gas, then get an electric heater with a blower that produces the same power. Since gas is cheaper than electricity why would you want to do this? <<>> You can not convert a gas dryer to an electrical dryer. These are two different pieces of equipment and the internal workings of the dryers are not even close in comparison. If you are thinking of changing to electricity from a gas dryer, it will cost you more money to run the electric dryer. The electric dryer will need a new supply breaker directly from the service distribution panel to the new electric dryer's location.30 amp breaker, 3C #10 wire and a dryer receptacle have to be installed. You will have to get a gas fitter in to terminate your existing gas line that goes to the existing dryer as that is not a homeowner's DIY. Best advice, stick with the gas dryer.
