Both are only an appliance. Neither knows anything about the presence of the other. They won't get jealous or have some kind of fight during the middle of the night. Why not if you feel that you need them?

Gas dryers are often cheaper to purchase than electric dryers. Also, a home may only have a gas hook-up available. In the past, gas dryers were much more popular than electric, and many households havent upgraded yet.

Although harder to find, they do make 110 volt clothes dryers. They are usually a smaller capacity than 220 volt dryers and may take longer for clothes to dry.

Gas dryers will dry clothes using less overall energy. However that does not necessarily mean that they are the cheapest to operate. Overall operating costs will depend on the cost of your gas. Natural gas is far less expensive than propane.

You need two separate 240 VAC circuits from your electric panel that are each rated at 30 amps if they are electric dryers.

As they are all different, why not just go to a shop which specialises in selling dryers and read the rating plates on the backs of the dryers? Or ask the shop staff for details?

Electric dryers are less expensive to purchase initially but the cost of gas vs electricity in your area will determine what is best for you to own and operate over the life of the appliance.

A gas clothes dryer will never become an electric dryer. To convert from an old gas dryer to a new electric model, the only major thing is to make sure there is the right kind of electric power outlet. Nearly all dryers require a large 30A 230V plug. Your gas dryer had only a regular 15A 117V plug, just light the other regular outlets in the house. Grounding is essential (!) for an electric dryer. If the ground is not there you will eventually get a horrible shock from the washer or dryer. A few clothes dryers (usually apartment sized models) use only the standard outlet, but expect a drying time of 2 hours plus for a small load of clothes.
