Is the Maytag Neptune Gas Dryer Energy Efficient?

The Neptune gas dryer by Maytag is not certified as an energy-efficient appliance by the U.S. Department of Energy's ENERGY STAR program as of 2015. Only 12 gas dryer models are currently certified as energy efficient, none of which are produced by Maytag.

While Maytag does produce energy-efficient electric clothes dryers, none of the company's gas dryers currently in production meet ENERGY STAR criteria, nor do older models such as the Neptune line. ENERGY STAR-certified gas dryers are currently produced by Samsung, LG and Kenmore in 7.3 and 7.4 cubic foot capacity models, closely mirroring the Maytag Neptune MDG4000AWQ model in size.
