How long before heat pump dryers become mainstream?

4 months ago

I am moving appliances away from natural gas to electric. I have already replaced the gas range with induction and will be getting solar panels in a few years.

When the HVAC eventually needs replacing in the next few years, I plan to switch to a heat pump.

Then, when/if I change my gas water heater to electric, I will be able to permanently shut off the gas and terminate that utility account.

I have a washer dryer set with a gas dryer that I want to switch to an ultra-efficient heat pump style when it comes time to replace it. However, the selection for heat pump dryers serns very limited. Probably fewer choices than I had for induction ranges.

How much longer before heat-pump dryers become common or even default for all-electric dryers?
