Our vent cleaning services in Knoxville, TN can help your dryer run more efficiently and save you money on energy costs.
Over the years, dryer lint, dander, hair, and other materials build up in your dryer vents. While many homeowners consider this a normal part of owning the appliance, most don’t understand the major problems that come with a neglected vent. Clogged dryer vents can cause a dryer to work inefficiently, leading to more expensive energy costs. You may have to run your load more than once to dry your laundry evenly. Your dryer may feel hot to the touch and overheat often, or it may even stop working years before the end of its usual lifespan.
While your dryer is the first to see the effects of a neglected vent, there are more major problems to be aware of. A clogged vent is a potential fire hazard. FEMA suggests almost 3,000 fires a year are directly related to dryers. Of those, 34% are caused by clogged dryer vents.
Homeowners need to be aware of this potential danger and keep an eye out for important warning signs associated with clogged dryer vents, such as:
- Your dryer requires multiple cycles to dry a load of laundry
- Your clothes smell “musty” after they come out of the dryer
- You can see lint built up behind your dryer or around your vent
- Your dryer is very hot to the touch
- You notice an increase in energy costs
