Gas hookups, electric plug, electric dryer?

We just bought a house. In the laundry/utility closet, there is a gas hook up, a regular 110 outlet, and a 4 prong 30A 125/250V outlet. Am I correct in assuming that we are set up to accommodate a gas dryer OR an electric dryer? Thank you in advance for any guidance... first time home buyer!

Hi Kristym4,

Yes, it sounds like you have the necessary service connections for your laundry room, depending upon where you are located in the country, you may want to ascertain the local utility rates before deciding upon a gas or electric dryer. Here on the west coast, electrical rates are among the highest in the country and as a result we have a gas dryer. If you are in a rural area and use propane, I would choose an electric dryer.
