Why would the Wizard suggest such a thing! If everyone line-dried their laundry, the Wizard would be out of work!Fairfax Dryer Vent Cleaning Wizard works to educate the public about dryer fire prevention and energy savings while providing an important home maintenance service. Dryer vent systems are the Wizard’s only specialty and they are the experts at installing and maintaining safe and efficient dryer vent systems.
With more consumers becoming aware of the need to conserve energy and preserve our planet, many have learned that by line-drying their laundry they can save and average of $25.00 per month in energy cost. The automatic clothes dryer, though a wonderful convenience, is one of the largest energy users in American homes.
Doug and Janice Bittner own Dryer Vent Wizard of Northern Virginia (http://www.NorthernVirginia.DryerVentCleaningNow.com), specializing in dryer vent service. According to the Wizard, over 80 percent of American homes have clothes dryers which use about 6 percent of residential electricity.
To explain the impact clothes dryers have on our environment, consider about half of all electrical power plants use coal and each pound of coal burned creates over 2 pounds of carbon dioxide, a global warming gas. Clothes dryers use nearly 2,000 pounds of coal each year.
The Fairfax Dryer Vent Cleaning Wizard realizes that most Americans refuse to give up the clothes dryers and they do not recommend it. They merely suggest line-drying some laundry to reduce energy cost and extend dryer life.
Clothes dryers and clothes lines both require heat and air flow to do their job. The biggest differences are convenience, energy cost, and maintenance requirements. “I’ve never seen a clothesline cause a fire!” said the Wizard.
Clothes lines require little maintenance; however, the dryer is a different story. Overtime, the most common ailment with the clothes dryer will be increased drying time. Rarely is this a mechanical problem with the clothes dryer itself. The problem is caused by lint accumulation in the dryer vent system.
Service Dryer Vent Wizard ensures clothes dryers operate safely and efficiently, to prevent dryer fires and save energy. A well maintained dryer vent system will allow adequate air flow to dry clothes more quickly. Proper dryer and dryer vent maintenance prolongs the life of the clothes dryer, conserves energy and eliminates a fire hazard. Visit http://www.fairfaxdryerventcleaning.com/ to learn more.
