Taylors SC Dryer Vent Cleaning Wizard Provides Tips for Keeping it Clean and Green
The Wizard explains how the dryer lint trap is an important energy saver
Matthew Burrow, owner of Dryer Vent Wizard of Upstate SC provides service with education to promote dryer safety and energy savings. His customers appreciate his dedication to excellence as he cleans and repairs dryer vent systems to help save energy while promoting safety.
Over 17,000 dryer fires occur each year with failure to clean dryer vents being the leading cause. Poorly installed dryer vent systems can also be hazardous. The Wizard (http://upstatesc.dryerventcleaningnow.com/) is especially concerned with people using the vinyl, plastic or flexible foil dryer ducts. Another concern is in older homes where people have their dryer venting into the crawlspace of their home.
According to Burrow, the clothes dryer is one of the most likely appliances to cause a fire and one of the biggest energy users in the home. Most new dryer models have a moisture sensor that will automatically turn of the machine when clothes are dry. This prevents over drying which can damage clothing and waste energy. Of course, the dryer is only as efficient as the user, so even older models without the auto-dry sensor can be operated more efficiently by adapting the following tips:
Dry full loads or reduce drying time for partial loads. Operating a dryer for an extra 15 minutes per load can cost up to $34 per year in energy waste.
Clean the lint trap after every load. Dryers work by moving heated air through wet laundry, evaporating and then venting the vapor outdoors. If the lint screen is full, airflow is reduced and clothes will take longer to dry.
Have a complete dryer vent inspection performed by a qualified dryer vent service technician to ensure it is properly installed according to current safety standards.
Schedule dryer vent cleaning service periodically to remove lint accumulation in the dryer duct and dryer cabinet to eliminate a fire hazard and improve dryer performance.
Dryer vent cleaning is the best way to prevent dryer fires and save energy. A poorly vented clothes dryer can cost an additional $300 per year to operate. Poorly vented gas dryers can be a carbon monoxide threat.
