Maintaining and cleaning our dryers’ vents are probably far from our minds. Cleaning out the vent trap is a mundane motion we go through every time we use the dryer. But how often do we make sure the vent is cleaned, removed of clogs and running smoothly? Unless our dryer is giving us fits, probably not very often. There are many benefits to keeping up with this tedious task, but today we would like to look at a handful of them.
Air Supply Heating & Air Conditioning has prepared a quick list of benefits to Dryer Vent Cleaning:
Fire safety – Approximately 15,500 dryer fires occur every year. Deaths, injuries, and property damage are a resulting factor. Failure to clean the dryer vent is often cited, being the lint was the ignition. The risk of a fire is equal among electric and gas dryers, and even the energy efficient dryers build up lint. Professionally getting your dryer vents cleaned regularly from Air Supply Heating and Air Conditioning can greatly reduce your risk of fire, saving you, your loved ones, and your home.
Prevent carbon monoxide poisoning – Carbon monoxide is a colorless, odorless, and tasteless gas. It can cause flu-like symptoms and even death. Carbon monoxide results in poorly maintained dryer vents. Dryer vents that are clogged with lint, or even mice or birds nest, make it difficult for exhaust fumes to be properly vented outdoors. Harmful gasses can back up created carbon monoxide. Having a specialist from Air Supply Heating and Air Conditioning properly install and clean your dryer vents will help prevent the cause and effect of carbon monoxide poisoning protecting your household from being inflicted.
Eliminates mold problems – The top priority of a dryer is to dry your clothes. A basic load of wet clothes holds nearly a half gallon of water. A clean and properly installed dryer vent makes certain the water is expelled outside during operation. Clogs in a vent can be a disaster and the perfect breeding ground for mold and mildew. Moisture can condense into a pool of water, and not only will lint continue to build, but moisture and lint can create mold to fester. Not only could the undisturbed mold compromise your homes foundation, it can also be harmful to people and pets. A skilled technician from Air Supply Heating and Air Conditioning can properly install, and keep the airflow running smoothly in your dryer vents.
Energy saving – A clogged dryer can drastically increase your run time on a dryer, causing you to have to restart the same load multiple times. Keeping airflow running seamlessly will keep your bill down, and lessen the risk of disasters. Contact Air Supply Heating and Air Conditioning for a thorough dryer inspection and energy audit today!
Extends dryer life and clothing endurance – Keeping your dryer vents cleaned of lint and debris regularly keeps your drying from working overtime. If your dryer has to work harder, more strain is being put on the moving parts. More strain and energy being sustained can result in a dryer breaking down needing costly repairs, or even replacement. While your clothes are running in the drying cycle, heat is being blown onto your clothes to dry them. If your dryer vent is clogged, more heat accumulates in the dryer, putting more wear on your drying clothes that can result in holes.
