DRYER VENT INSTALL & REPAIR
We not only clean dryer vents, we fix 'em too!
CONVENIENT & SAFE
Dryer vents aren’t typically on our radar, but when it comes to fire safety, the installation and condition of your dryer venting system is incredibly important. Unfortunately, in many new home constructions, the dryer vents are traveling long distances throughout the home, and ducts are being sealed with mere duct tape, which can easily come loose after exposure to high heat and moisture, both of which are produced by your dryer. Installers commonly take into account only the convenience of having a dryer in a bedroom or hall closet, and not about whether or not the path of the ductwork is conducive to airflow and fire safety. Your clothes dryer produces high heat and may produce dangerous carbon monoxide. If the venting system isn’t properly and thoughtfully installed and sealed, heat and gas can escape into your home causing a fire or serious health issues.
INEFFICIENT IS EXPENSIVE
Aside from their ability to spark a fire and lead to carbon monoxide poisoning if installed improperly, an inefficiently routed dryer vent system can also increase utility bills. If the venting system is full of turns and inclines, or if the dryer has to work harder to get adequate air supply, you can expect your clothes to take longer to dry and your energy bills to be higher than necessary.
