Are Dirty, Damaged, Or Poorly Routed Dryer Vents Costing You Money & Time? Let Sweepnman Help
Does it seem like your clothes dryer just isn’t doing the job anymore? Don’t go out and buy a new appliance just yet — your dryer vents may be the problem. How so? Well, dryer vents can cause your clothes dryer to work harder and run inefficiently for a couple of reasons:
- The vents are dirty. Lint buildup is a given, especially if the vents are long and feature a lot of twists, turns, drops, and rises. When buildup reaches a certain level, it can actually starve the clothes dryer of the air it needs to properly and promptly dry the clothes. As a result, you may find yourself running your dryer longer and at hotter temperatures, wasting money and time.
- The vents are poorly routed. Another reason dryer vents can lead to poor performance is route installation. If the path the venting travels doesn’t provide a quick and direct way out of the home, it can cause the dryer to have to work harder. Additionally, a winding and indirect vent will encourage more lint buildup.
- The vents are damaged or loose. Long, winding vents are more prone to damage, gaps, and loosening, which can negatively impact the safety and efficiency of the clothes dryer, as well. Sometimes ducts are only held together by duct tape, which can lose its adhesive properties as a result of heat and moisture exposure.
