The dryer vent is the most important part of the clothes dryer, responsible for expelling heat and moisture from tumbling laundry
Fairfax VA – The Fairfax Dryer Vent Cleaning Wizard works to educate consumers about the critical function of the dryer vent system. More than 17,000 dryer fires are reported annually with failure to clean dryer vents being the number one cause. Though out of sight, the dryer vent system plays the most important role in the function of a clothes dryer.
Dryer Vent Wizard service techs are focused on promoting an important message about dryer vent cleaning to eliminate a fire hazard while improving dryer performance. The most important function of a dryer is removing moisture from wet laundry using forced heat. The humidity produced from the moisture held in the warm air is normally expelled to the outdoors through the dryer vent. Poor ventilation results in increased drying time, leading to higher energy bills.
Doug and Janice Bittner, owners of Dryer Vent Wizard, explain to their customers how moisture can condense into pools of water inside the dryer duct and allow excess humidity into the home leading to mold and mildew damage. This situation not only makes the dryer operate inefficiently, it also causes the AC to overwork during the hot season.
Another important function of the dryer is heat used to dry tumbling laundry. Restricted air flow can cause the dryer to over heat. A spark from inside the dryer can ignite the flammable lint accumulated in the back of the dryer and the dryer ducts, leading to a fire.
