A clean and tidy air ventilation system means clean and tidy lungs for most who understand the process involved with HVAC systems and home maintenance.
However, not all realize the exact reasons why work is put into providing clean air for the public to breathe. Air Duct Cleaning understands the importance of understanding why proper duct cleaning and maintenance are needed.
In today’s blog, our team will discuss some important reasons why dryer vent cleaning is necessary.
Clogged Vents Can Waste Energy
The modern world is about energy efficiency and responsible consumption. Not properly maintaining your dryer vents can cause them to clog.
A clogged vent can lead to improper drying of clothing items, and misuse of energy. This can lead to the need for multiple loads to be run until the clothes dry which can not only waste energy but also run up the electricity bill.
More time spent turning means more money spent out of pocket to pay for that bill.
Clogged Vents Can Cause A Fire
Not only are clogged air vents energy inefficient and expensive, but they’re also dangerous. A clogged air vent means that linen, dust, and debris that are potentially flammable will build up in a hot air shaft.
Too much pressure against it will cause it to potentially combust. If it catches fire it will spread quickly into the rest of the house.
Fires that result from neglect of air ventilation and dryer duct maintenance are not typically covered under insurance policies.
Prevent Dryer Vent Clogging
In order to prevent unnecessary inefficiencies in energy usage, or the potential for fires due to a clogged dryer vent, regular maintenance is highly recommended.
Having your dryer vents cleaned yearly at a minimum is important to prevent damages to your air and home.
