Dryer Vent Cleaning = Energy Savings

Lint accumulation, clogs, or animal nests in dryer vent lines can cause restricted airflow through the dryer vent system. This causes the dryer to run less efficiently and may cause a buildup of heat and moisture and even cause the dryer to stop working. This can occur in all types of dryers including energy-efficient dryers, ultimately causing your energy savings to dwindle. Dryer vent cleaning can help protect the environment, your home, and your wallet by allowing your dryer to use less energy per cycle.

A clogged dryer vent can cause a host of problems that may be difficult to diagnose without a professional inspection. When airflow is stopped or restricted in the dryer vent, the dryer is forced to work harder to expel the moisture and heat, which may result in poor performance or automatic shutoff.

Extend the Life of Your Dryer

When a dryer starts performing poorly, taking longer to dry clothing, or overheating, people often believe it is a mechanical issue and start shopping for a replacement. In reality it may not be a malfunctioning dryer, but an accumulation of lint or other debris in the dryer vent line.

Professional inspection and dryer vent cleaning can bring your dryer back to life, often restoring the dryer function to its original capability. In order to keep your dryer operating at peak efficiency, manufacturers recommend that dryer vent lines are cleaned by a professional like Dryer Vent Squad once a year.
