Service by the Old Westbury Dryer Vent Cleaning Wizard Improves Indoor Air Quality

The dryer vent is little known source of indoor air contaminants…when a clogged dryer vent is the cause of the problem, there is also the risk of dryer fire

 

 


Old Westbury, NY – Dryer vent cleaning is the best solution for a moldy, smelly dryer vent system. Indoor air contaminants that cause sneezing, watery eyes and runny noses can come from several sources in the home. When the source of this problem is a poorly vented clothes dryer, then there is an added threat of having a dryer fire.

Over time, a unseen things behind the dryer can lead to hazardous conditions. Dryer hose fittings loosen. Lint builds up in the dryer vent hose. Hot moist air is vented into the home rather than outside and with it dust, lint particles, and a breeding ground for dust mites is generated.

Bob Dougherty, owner of Dryer Vent Wizard, deals with problems associated with poorly vented clothes dryers. Dryer vents are the Wizard’s main focus and they are the experts to call for dryer vent cleaning, repair or new dryer vent installation. When Bob visits a customer’s home, he does a complete dryer vent inspection then explains his recommendations so the customer understands that he will make the dryer operate safer and greener.

Simply vacuuming out the dryer vent hose is not enough. More and more home insurers are realizing the danger and requiring dryer vent inspection and service before providing coverage. In an average home a loose dryer hose fitting can increase humidity by as much as 30%. Service by Dryer Vent Wizard (http://www.dryerventcleaningnassaucountynewyork.com/) will eliminate this problem.

Dryer Vent Repair Service Eliminates Fire Hazard and Fixes the Dryer for Old Westbury Resident

The customer complained that clothes were not getting dry…lack of heat produced by the dryer was not the problem



Old Westbury, NY – Dryer vent repair was the solution to the customer’s problem. She had called Bob Dougherty, owner of Dryer Vent Wizard, when she experienced problems with her dryer. “There was plenty of heat being produced by the dryer,” said Dougherty. “I noticed that immediately when I entered the laundry room. It was very hot in there.”

Bob knew that the problem was caused by an air flow blockage. He turned off the dyer and pulled it out from the wall and was horrified to see the crushed dryer duct and a large pile of lint. “The old, flexible foil dryer duct had been crushed when the homeowner pushed the dryer against the wall,” said Dougherty. “A large tear in the duct allowed lint to pour out onto the floor behind the dryer.”

Bob explained to the customer that this type of dryer vent system no longer meets safety standards. He would have to install a new dryer vent system made of rigid metal. “The customer was relived to have eliminated a serious fire hazard and she was very happy to have her dryer working efficiently. With the new dryer vent system, she isn’t able to push the dryer as close to the wall, but she said she would get used to it. Safety and efficiency were more important.”

On his way out, Bob promised to follow up with the customer to clean the dryer vent every year. “Even the very best dryer vent system needs to be cleaned periodically to ensure safety and efficiency,” said Dougherty. “Technology just hasn’t produced the maintenance-free dryer vent system.”

Dryer Vent Repair may be the Solution to Dryer Problems, says the Wizard of Westbury













Dryer Vent Repair Old Westbury: Dryer vent repair may be the solution to some dryer problems. Clothes dryers are simple machines that require air flow to function properly. The dryer vent system is responsible for air flow. If it is clogged with lint, crushed behind the dryer, or not installed properly, then the dryer will not function well. Before calling an expensive appliance repair specialist, read this article. Dryer vent repair or dryer vent cleaning will likely solve your dryer problems.

Have you noticed it taking longer to dry a load of laundry? Is it unusually hot and humid in the laundry room when the dryer is running? Do clothes come out with a moldy smell or are they hot to the touch? These are signs of an air flow problem. An appliance repair company will not be much help…you need to call a dryer vent technician.

When clothes are tumbling in the dryer heat is applied, increasing the temperature in the drum to about 175 degrees, evaporating moisture and forcing it through the dryer vent system. The heat helps, but air flow is what really gets the clothes dry. Like clothes drying on a clothesline on a windy day, the dryer constantly blows air through the tumbling clothes to do the job. As your laundry tumbles, the hot air picks up moisture which is forced into the dryer ducts leading to the vent outdoors.

The primary function of your dryer vent system is to carry heat and moisture from your home. Many people believe it is responsible for removing lint; however, most lint trapped in the dryer vent system will build up and remain trapped until dryer vent cleaning is performed.

Your clothes dryer should function well as long as the airflow is not blocked. The older style dryer ducts were made of vinyl or flexible plastic; they were popular because they were very easy to install. This type of dryer exhaust duct is no longer acceptable for use. Dryer ducts should be made of rigid metal.

If your dryer is not performing as well as it used to then or maintenance is necessary. Rarely is there a problem with the dryer. A dryer vent repair technician who specializes in dryer exhaust issues can do an inspection and explain their recommendations to correct the problem.

Dryer Vent Cleaning Old Westbury, NY: Dryer Lint Build-up Sensor

Dryer Vent Cleaning Old Wesbury, NY: Dryer vent cleaning is the number one way to prevent dryer related fires. Cleaning dryer vents annually can save consumers up to $300 per year on energy costs. Dryer vent cleaning prevents dryers from over-working and over-heating, which can lead to pre-mature break down and expensive appliance repair bills.

When the dryer starts taking an additional cycle to properly dry a load of laundry, this is a sure sign of lint build-up clogging the dryer vent system and blocking air flow. Many people believe this is a sign that their dryer is old and worn out. This is rarely the case. Cleaning the dryer vent system can make even a very old dryer work as good as it did when it was new.

A Florida man invented a sensor to indicate the back-pressure levels found in the exhaust conduit of a clothes dryer. The pressure levels in a dryer vent system typically increase over time due to lint build-up, nesting animals or other debris that blocks the air flow.

The sensor is installed with a fitting on the dryer vent tube and a hose that is connected to a wall-mounted digital pressure sensor. LED lights on the sensor indicate the pressure levels and when they reach a point where dryer vent cleaning is required, a warning light flashes and the device beeps.

A similar device is available to tell people when to change their furnace filter; however, there has never been one for a clothes dryer until now. In order for this device to work properly, you must have your dryer vent system cleaned and inspected to be sure it is properly installed. The device works on all dryers, old and new, but it cannot be properly calibrated if there is a blockage in the dryer vent system.

This safety device is yet another way to alert consumers that appliance service is necessary. It fits in well with smoke alarms, carbon monoxide detectors and radon sensors, but will it make consumers be more responsible? I think it’s a step in the right direction; however, people who do not think about dryer vent cleaning probably won’t buy it. I think it would be a great idea to have it be part of a new clothes dryer. It should be designed so that the dryer will not function if it is not connected.

Dryer vent cleaning is recommended annually to prevent many home appliance hazards including dryer fires, high energy bills, carbon monoxide poisoning, excess moisture leading to mildew damage and mold related illness for residents. All this being said, dryer vent cleaning is very important maintenance. The fee for dryer vent cleaning is little compared to the many hazards associated with a poorly vented clothes dryer.
