Newer homes could require more frequent dryer vent cleaning and longer drying cycles rarely indicate age and wear with a clothes dryer
Moran Hill, CA – According to the Morgan Hill Dryer Vent Cleaning Wizard, all clothes dryers, new and old models, gas and electric, cheap and high-end models, require maintenance. There is no such thing as a maintenance free dryer vent system. Even one that is professionally installed by the Wizard will need dryer vent cleaning service.
James Smith, owner of Dryer Vent Wizard (www.dryerventcleaningmorganhillca.com/) address 2 common myths when he is talking to his customers about their dryer vent system. The first one concerns people with newer homes who assume their dryer vent system is a newer, upgraded model; therefore, more efficient. This leads them to believe that regularly scheduled dryer vent cleaning service is unnecessary. They couldn’t be further misled! Some newer homes are built with the laundry area located in the center of the home, near upstairs bedrooms, rather than on an outside wall on the first floor. This requires a much longer dryer duct, often containing bends and turns, which can restrict air flow and make the dryer work harder. These systems actually require more maintenance because lint is more likely to accumulate in longer dryer ducts.
The Dryer Vent Cleaning Morgan Hill Wizard provides valuable information to his customers while performing an important service. He explains why dryer vent cleaning and professional dryer vent installation according to current building and safety standards is critical to dryer safety and performance.
The second common misconception is that increased drying time means time to buy a new clothes dryer. While some appliances will lose efficiency as they age, this is rarely the case with a clothes dryer. Longer drying cycles usually means a clogged dryer vent which is a serious fire hazard. Even older dryers should be capable of drying a load with an hour as long as they are properly vented.
