Benefits of A Clean Dryer Vent
You may not realize that having your dryer cleaned out can save you in big ways. Over time dust and lint collects in your dryer vent and causes your dryer to not run as efficiently as it should. A professional service can come in and clean that out for you. Annual cleaning by a professional company is recommended. Cleaning out your dryer vent will save you financially. But also add years to the life of your dryer. Let’s discuss some of the benefits of having a clean dryer vent.
Lower Electricity Bill
When your dryer vent has lint build-up in it your dryer is working that much harder to heat the clothes that are in it. The harder the dryer is working, the longer it will take to completely dry your clothes. The extra time in the dryer brings higher electric bills. Energy prices have skyrocketed in the past few years. We must think of any way to save a few bucks. Having your dryer vents cleaned out by a professional will help with this.
Reduce Fire Hazard
Year after year, fire departments are called to put out dryer fires. Most of these fires are from clogged vents. Lint accumulates and as the dryer is working to dry your clothes, heat from the dryer ignites the lint. Our team at Ye Olde Brit Chimney Sweep can take care of this for you. We recommend an annual cleaning of your dry vents. For the safety of your family and your home.
Avoiding Excessive Drying Times
If your dryer is fighting to get air circulation, your clothes will take longer to dry. When you have a clogged dryer vent, the time it takes to dry your clothes will increase. This goes hand in hand with the benefit of lowering your electric bill. Your dryer needs airflow from the outside to circulate and dry your clothes. The limited airflow hinders this process.
Extend the Life of Your Dryer
It is important to know that your dryer will last longer if it runs without issues. To run efficiently the dryer vent need a clear airflow. Having your dryer vents cleaned out on an annual basis will also keep repairs at a minimum. The harder your dryer is working to get your clothes and linens dry the sooner you will need to replace it. Repairs are costly as well.
