Middleton Dryer Vent Installation Wizard Reveals the Facts about Lint Alert Device
Clogged dryer vents are a leading cause of dryer fires resulting in injuries, deaths and nearly $200 million in property damages each year
Clothes dryers are a wonderful convenience but they come with a price. The dryer is one of the biggest energy users in the home and the most likely appliance to cause a fire. Webb Dickson, owner of Dryer Vent Wizard, enjoys building relationships with his customers as he offers them tips to keep clothes dryers operating safely and efficiently.
Though failure to clean dryer vents is the leading cause of dryer fires poorly installed dryer vents can also be a hazard. Dryer Vent Wizard (http://www.massdryervent.com/) performs a 10-point dryer vent inspection including air flow and temperature measurements to accurately assess the situation. He will explain his findings and recommend a solution to ensure safety and maximum dryer performance.
As a dryer vent installation specialist, Dickson is often asked about a product called the LintAlert, which is a device that attaches to the dryer and monitors the amount of lint building up. It plugs into a wall socket and has a small hose that attaches to the dryer’s exhaust. As pressure builds up, a light changes from green, to yellow to red. The device will sound an alarm if there is a significant blockage.
When asked if he recommended using this product, Dickson replied that it was up to the individual consumer. He explains that the dryer will provide plenty of warning signs to indicate restricted airflow, including excess heat and moisture in the laundry room when the dryer is running or clothes come out very hot after a cycle or have a moldy smell. The most common sign of lint build-up is increased drying time.
According to Dickson, the LintAlert is a positive step in the right direction, but the bottom line to preventing dryer fires is preventative maintenance. He encourages everyone to have a qualified specialist install the dryer and dryer vent system. Owners should have an annual dryer vent inspection and cleaning to ensure safety and efficiency.
