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.
