Dryer Vent Installation Wethersfield Wizard Explains the Value of Professional Service
Though the concept is rather simple, there are several critical errors homeowners make when installing a dryer vent system
John Moffat, owner of Dryer Vent Wizard finds something wrong with 9 out of 10 dryer vent systems he inspects. One very common issue is people using the vinyl or flexible foil dryer vent tubes that they purchase as a kit from the local home improvement store. This material is not safe for dryer exhaust. It is really designed to be used for bathroom exhaust fans.
According to the Dryer Vent Installation Wethersfield Wizard, current safety codes call for a solid metal dryer vent system that is installed properly to allow adequate air flow for maximum dryer performance. The dryer duct should be smooth inside and its path should be as short and straight as possible to maximize air flow. Longer dryer vent systems with bends and turns will hinder air flow and allow lint to build up more quickly.
“It is more difficult to push air through a longer dryer vent system because the air inside has weight and volume,” explained Moffat. The average clothes dryer can handle venting through about 20 feet if there are no bends or turns. The length should be reduced when 45 or 90 degree elbows are necessary.”
Though failure to clean dryer vents is the number one cause of dryer fires, poorly installed dryer vent systems can also be a hazard. Poor air flow allows lint to accumulate more quickly, blocking the system and causing overheating. The normal drum temperature of 175 degrees can quickly increase to 300 degrees or more, eventually becoming hot enough to ignite the flammable lint.
John Moffat specializes in dryer vent installation and maintenance for homes and business while he educates consumers on dryer fire prevention and energy savings. “We install the very best dryer vent systems to meet current safety codes,” explained Moffat. “However, even a professionally installed dryer vent system requires maintenance. We recommend dryer vent cleaning annually to ensure safe and efficient dryer performance.”
Services performed by the Wizard ensure clothes dryers are fire-safe and energy efficient. Each Dryer Vent Wizard is independently owned and operated; but all Wizards are working toward a common goal to make clothes dryers safer and greener in their community.
