When we move to Taipei we plan to buy a clothes dryer. In the US, the option is natural gas heating with 120V for the controls only, or 220/240V high voltage for both the drying and controls. There are no pure 120V dryers here.
In looking at apartments for rent I never see dryers, only washers, so I assume their is no “hookup” installed for dryers like in the US.
- If I buy a full size dryer there, will I be able to get 120V electric models that I can simply plug in the wall in any room and vent it out the window or set it on the balcony? Or will I have to pay someone to install a 220/240V line or gas line into the apartment/balcony to power a dryer?
- If paying for a new line/outlet, has anyone done this with success and recalls about what it costs?
Obviously a 240V dryer works better/faster than 120V, but the convenience of plug and play may beat that out. Thanks!
