Service by the Dripping Springs Dryer Vent Cleaning Wizard Makes a Positive Difference
The clothes dryer is among the biggest energy users in the home, especially when maintenance is neglected
Bob Bryfogle, owner of Dryer Vent Wizard combines an important home service with education to promote dryer safety and energy savings. His customers appreciate his dedication to excellence as he services their clothes dryer 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://www.dryerventwizardofcentraltexas.com/) is especially concerned with people using the vinyl, plastic or flexible foil dryer ducts. Another concern is in older homes where the dryer vent leads into the crawlspace under the home.
Bob explains to his customers how lint accumulation blocks airflow and causes the dryer to overheat, eventually leading to premature breakdown or a dryer fire. Some new dryer models have a moisture sensor that will automatically turn the dryer off 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 cause damage to clothing and waste energy.
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.
