A Clean and Unobstructed Dryer Vent Means Less Energy Used and More Peace of Mind
Energy Efficiency – A dirty, clogged dryer vent will increase dryer run time, which costs more money! Depending on the number of loads per week and electricity rate, your customers can save hundreds of dollars a year in electricity costs with a properly maintained dryer vent.
Improved Safety – The Consumer Products Safety Commission estimates over 15,000 dryer-related fires, most caused by lint build-up in the dryer or exhaust vent. A properly maintained dryer and dryer vent can help reduce this risk.
Lower Frustration – A dirty, clogged dryer vent will increase drying time, which not only increases your customer’s frustration, but can also reduce the life of the dryer, leading to costly repairs or even a complete replacement of the dryer.
How Dryers Work and the Importance of a Clean Dryer Vent
Dryers work by moving heated air through the tumbling clothes and exhausting that air through the dryer vent and out of the house. When the dryer is properly maintained and the dryer vent is clean, this process works efficiently and allows the dryer to do what it is designed to do. However, over time the lint builds up in the dryer vent and the dryer itself, which reduces the amount of airflow – leading to increased run time, more money spent on electricity, potentially costly dryer repairs and a potential fire hazard!
