THE BENEFITS OF DRYER VENT CLEANING
Let me geek out for a minute; Dryers use 2790 Kilowatts per hour, for reference a TV uses 230. In terms of money this means your dryer can cost anywhere between .55 cents to .85 cents per load. When you calculate that with an inefficient dryer vent the number goes up to .80 cents to $1.10 per load. The average family of four consumes 7 loads of laundry per week and with a cleaned efficient vent system will spend around $200-$220 on their annual utility bill. The family that neglects annual maintenance on their vent system will spend $290-$400. Roughly saving you between $100-$180 a year just by having a clean vent. Say it with us: A CLEAN VENT IS A GREEN VENT! Saving you money and operating more eco-friendly.
Dryers are a luxury most parts of the world don’t get to experience! They save us time and use of personal energy. Dryers today are made with all the bells and whistles. Even the most basic dryers are made with great efficiency and safety features that make life more convenient and worry-free. The problem is that your dryer can only function as good as your vent system allows it! This is why we say, “Let your dryer breathe!” What we mean by that is annually clean your dryer from all lint and debris, as well as have a professional thoroughly clean the vent system from the dryer to the termination point outside. It could potentially triple the life span of your dryer and keep it from “choking” to death.
If we are willing to spend money on nice clothes we should be willing to take care of the thing we shove our clothes in every week. A dryer that isn’t allowing air to flow properly through the vent system is overheating and will damage your clothes over time. Not even the “delicate” cycle can save you! Your clothes will also begin to collect lint and contain a mild soured smell. If you want to dress to impress be sure to clean your linty mess.
We’ve all been there; right before bed you were going to put up your laundry just to find it damp or still wet. So you shove it back in and leave it running while you sleep (don’t do that, it is a serious fire hazard!) The next morning you are in a hurry and forget to take out your laundry just to find it later in the evening all wrinkled, so you run it again! If you are like my wife and I, we are constantly falling behind on laundry. We don’t need an inefficient dryer to make this weekly chore anymore difficult. Get your Dryer and Dryer Vent cleaned, it will save you time!
But Most Importantly...
It could save you from a HOUSE FIRE!
I’m sure, everyone who has ever had a house fire thinks the same thing… “I never thought this would happen to me.” Well unfortunately dryer fires terrorize 15,000 families annually throughout the United States. The best way to prevent that from being you and your family is to have your Dryer and Dryer Vent cleaned annually. What happens is, as lint begins to collects in the dryer vent system, the dryer can overheat, throw a spark, and cause a fire. It's that simple. Eliminate the lint and you eliminate the main cause.
Please hear me, I’m not the only one recommending this. Every Dryer manufacturer recommends annual cleanings and FEMA, the National Fire Protection Association, and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission send out ads and campaigns warning consumers to properly clean their Dryer and Dryer Vent systems annually.
