    Great question.  It really depends on how much you use your dryer and what type of dryer you have.  Although the Environmental Protection Agency does not award Energy Star labels, there are some dryers that automatically switch off once they detect no moisture.  The average dryer uses around 875 kilowatt hours of energy a year, which would at an average of 8.5 cents for kilowatts as estimated by the U.S. Department of Energy would save the averaged household around $357 a year, given 4 hours of use a day on 120 days a year.
