The clothes dryer is the most likely appliance to cause a fire and one of the largest energy users in the home so dryer maintenance is vital to safety and efficiency
New Haven, CT — The Dryer Vent Cleaning New Haven Wizard suggests a great reason for homeowners to schedule dryer maintenance regularly. Of course, dryer vent cleaning is the number one way to prevent dryer fires, which should be incentive enough. Clothes dryers are the most likely appliance to cause a fire and the most expensive to operate when poorly maintained.
According to the Wizard, dryer vent cleaning can save up to $300 per year in energy expenses. A clogged dryer duct or improperly installed dryer vent can cause the dryer to use substantially more energy. Dryer maintenance is critical to home safety, dryer performance and energy savings.
Don Brusseau, owner of Dryer Vent Wizard (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JSkAuZuWgY8) is on a mission to educate consumers about dryer fire safety and energy savings. Home owners who think its normal for their dryer to take more than one cycle to dry clothes are wasting energy and they are in danger of starting dryer fire. Don Brusseau advises his customers that lint accumulation will cause a dryer over heat and over work, leading to a fire hazard and substantially higher utility bills.
The New Haven Dryer Vent Cleaning Wizard says dryer maintenance is important and dryers must be installed properly to meet city, state and manufacturer codes. Plastic or foil dryer vents need to be replaced with solid metal venting. Lint traps should be cleaned after EVERY load of laundry and lint screens should be washed with soap and water every few months to remove residue left behind by fabric softeners. Professional dyer vent cleaning should be scheduled each year to ensure safety.
If clothes take more than one cycle to dry or there is no visible lint on the dryer screen, chances are likely that lint has built up in the dryer ducts. This is a good indication that dryer vent cleaning is necessary. Good dryer maintenance will speed up drying time and extend the life of the clothes dryer.
