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.
