Electrical Question from Linda about Dryer Wiring

Question: I am switching from a gas dryer to an electric. What charge should I expect from the electrician to wire a new outlet?

Dave’s Reply:
Thanks for your electrical question.
Hi Linda – This would require a dedicated 30 amp 240 volt circuit. The cost would depend on the location of the electrical panel where the electrician would feed this new circuit from. Basically it’s a factor of distance and access to the areas needed to install this circuit. In some cases at least part of the new wiring may need to be installed into surface conduit.  An rough estimate of about $150 to $350 – all depending on the factors above and the labor charges in your area. Consider using the Find Qualified Electricians banner on this page to locate an electrician in your area for a more accurate estimate.
