According to the U.S. Fire Administration and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, there has been a steady rise in the number of dryer fires over the last decade. Lint buildup in dryer vents contributes greatly to these fires. In addition, clogged vents restrict airflow and this lowers the efficiency of your dryer. At Hallandale Air Conditioning Repair, we have a department dedicated purely to handle dryer vent cleaning. This is to ensure an excellent job is done in a timely manner.
Signs that It’s Time for Professional Dryer Vent Cleaning
Professional dryer vent cleaning will do a lot of good to your dryer. The benefits you will enjoy by hiring professional dryer vent cleaning specialists far much outweighs the cost you will incur. Some of the signs to look out for include:
- Clothes taking longer than usual to dry
- Dryer overheating
- Huge energy bills – This is as a result of the dryer having to run for longer hours to dry the clothes
- Dirt, dust and other debris outside the dryer vent opening
- A musty odor from the clothes after a complete drying cycle
Benefits of a Clean Dryer Vent
Prevent Fires in Your Home – Statistics show that dryer fires in homes have been on an upward trend and by having professionals thoroughly clean your system will ensure that you and your family are living in a safe home.
Reduce Power Bills – Clothes dryers consume a lot of energy and when they are not operating efficiently this consumption doubles or triples. This is due to the fact that the dryer has to run 2 to 3 times longer than it should to dry the clothes. When the lint buildup is removed, it will significantly boost the efficiency of the unit and thus lowering of the energy bills.
Reduced Drying Time – A full load of clothing should typically take between 35 and 40 minutes. However, when the lint has buildup in the vents this can go even to over 50 minutes. Having your dryer vent cleaned by Hallandale Air Conditioning Repair technicians will lead to a considerable reduction in drying time.
Reduced Repair Calls – Dirty dryer vents pushes the dryer to work extra hard to dry the clothes. This really wears the unit down, but once the vents are cleaned, the dryer will be running faster and more efficiently and this reduces repair needs. This also prolongs the lifespan of your dryer.
