Besides being a fire hazard, insufficient dryer venting and exhaust systems cause a clothes dryer to use up to $300 extra per year in gas and electricity
Palm Beach, FL - As with any appliance, there are several things that can go mechanically wrong with a clothes dryer; however, maintenance has been discovered to cure most problems. Horatio Chiorean, owner of Dryer Vent Wizard in Palm Beach and Broward Counties, Florida shows his customers how they can save money on utilities while prolonging the life of their clothes dryer and preventing dryer fires with simple maintenance.
Horatio explains, "It is not normal for an older dryer to take several cycles to properly dry a load of clothes. Many people think this is the case when their dryers are not working as well as they did when they were new. They think that as long as the lint screen is free of lint, the inefficiency must be due to the age of the dryer."
Horatio makes it clear that this is a myth as he explains, "Air-flow is the most important requirement for a dryer to be efficient in drying your laundry. Lint build-up in the dryer duct restricts air-flow; this is the most common problem found when a clothes dryer isn't functioning properly. Not only is this a fire hazard; it also causes your dryer to work harder and use more energy. A clogged dryer vent can increase your utility bills by nearly $300 per year."
According to Dryer Vent Wizard, dryer vent cleaning is the most important maintenance you can do for your dryer. Poor maintenance causes the dryer to overwork putting undue stress on the motor, bearings, belts and other parts of your dryer. Failure to properly maintain your dryer exhaust ducts will eventually result in a fire.
