Why You Should Have Your Dryer Vents Cleaned Annually
Dirty, lint-clogged dryer vents create 3 major concerns that should not be ignored.
1. They Can Cause Fires
Most people understand the importance of clearing the lint filter before putting their clothes in the dryer; however, it’s equally important to realize that the lint filter does not catch it all. With each load, more and more lint makes it past the filter to the outside vent opening. When enough lint forms inside this vent pipe, it restricts airflow, which causes overheating.
2. They Lessens Energy Efficiency
When your dryer’s vents are clogged, it will draw more energy to ensure that your clothes get dry. This extra exertion raises utility bills and lowers the energy efficiency of your unit. In essence, clogged dryer vents forces you to have to spend more time and money to get your laundry dry.
3. They Weaken Your Indoor Air Quality
Like lint, dirt, dust, and debris accumulates inside your vent pipe too. This buildup of contaminants can pose a danger to respiratory health if it goes unchallenged.
2 Ways to Tell If Your Dryer Vents Need To Be Cleaned
1. It’s taking longer and longer to dry a load of laundry
Dryers with clogged vents could take two or three times as long to get the job done. Dryer vents are designed to push hot, moist air out of dryers so they can pull in more dry air and keep drying clothes effectively.
If your clothes aren’t dry at the end of a normal drying cycle, then your vents could be clogged.
2. You Notice a Musty Or Burning Smell
if you notice a musty smell from mildew growth on damp laundry, or worse–a burning smell–call a professional to check your dryer vent hose for lint buildup.
