Helping prevent fires in your home
There are many things that contribute to the proper operation of a clothes dryer. The venting is the most critical, and the leading factor is dryer fires. That's why we come in to make sure you're home or business will be safe from fires and your dryer functioning perfectly.
Your dryer vent isn't something you think about, but it's so critical to keeping your home and business safe. Which is why it's important you make sure they're clear now.
Since you don't think about your dryer vents often, scheduling regular maintenance is the safest way to assure your dryer is running efficiently and safely. Schedule a visit from us now so we can make sure you don't run into any problems you'll regret later.
Know the most critical parts of your dryer:
One of the most important functions of a dryer is the elimination of moisture recovered during the heating of damp clothing. This moisture is held in the warm air produced by the dryer as humidity, and is normally expelled to the outdoors through the dryer's vent. If this air can not be adequately removed, poor drying will result.
This moisture can also condense into pools of water in the dryer vent, eventually leaking out. Any moisture accumulation inside the dryer ducting is a sign of poor venting which should be looked into. Schedule the Dryer Vent Wizard for a dryer vent cleaning and inspection.
The heat is another important function of a dryer. Many current dryer models have a 'one-time', non-resettable, thermal fuse or safety. These safety devices will open should the dryer's vent not be installed properly, or if it becomes restricted. Once this happens, the dryer will no longer heat and will require the part to be replaced to correct the condition. On some dryer designs (usually gas) failure of one of these thermal fuses will totally stop the dryer operation altogether.
On older models without one of these thermal safeties, poor venting can cause the dryer to cycle on its safety thermostat, instead of the temperature control thermostat. This usually contributes to poor drying and can cause overheating. On some models, the malfunctioning of the timer operation affects some cycles.
