BALTIMORE (WJZ) – Making your dryer more efficient can save you time, energy and money.

Mary Bubala reports if possible, put your dryer in a heated space. Putting it in a cold or damp basement will make the dryer work harder.

Dry two or more loads in a row, taking advantage of the dryer’s retained heat.

When shopping for a new dryer, look for one with a moisture sensor that automatically shuts off when clothes are dry.
