When was the last time you had someone in to do a good dryer vent cleaning. The term HVAC stands for Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning. When you choose Heavy Air & Heat, Inc. you are selecting a true HVAC company that provides all forms of services including cleaning your dryer vent.
If you think that the removable lint filter in your dryer catches all this, think again. Plenty of lint makes it past the filter and gets trapped in crevices deep inside the lint filter trap and all along the dryer vent hose or duct as it makes its way to the outside vent opening. When the collections build up, they restrict airflow and lead to overheating, which can ignite the lint itself.
We all know what dryer lint looks like and where it comes from, but where does it go? When you dry your clothing there is a hose that connects from your dryer to an outlet on the wall.
This outlet leads to a vent outside of your home. Over time lint can build up in this passage and will eventually cause a blockage, which can become a serious fire hazard if left unchecked. The U.S. Fire Administration reports that every year more than 2,900 home fires are started by clothes dryers. The leading cause of these fires is a buildup of lint due to lack of simple maintenance. Many manufactures recommend it be cleaned once a year. When was the last time you had dryer vent cleaned?
