Clogged dryer vents are a fire hazard

SPONSORED

When was the last time you had your dryer’s vent system cleaned professionally?

If you’ve answered, “Never,” or if it’s been longer than a year, then it’s time to call a professional, such as Confident Aire.

While you may not have reason for concern with your dryer, you should, especially since clogged dryer vents could result in a fire or poisonous gas injury. According to the U.S. Fire Administration’s National Fire Data Center, dryers are responsible annually for 15,600 structure fires, 15 deaths and 400 injuries. Don’t become one of those statistics.

The HVAC professionals at Confident Aire specialize in cleaning duct work and dryer vents. They will clean the interior parts of your dryer efficiently, correctly and safely because they have the tools and training to remove all of the lint in the dryer ducts and vents.

There are many signs to look for that could be pointing to dryer vent clogging issues. If your clothes are not completely dry at the end of a normal drying cycle, they smell musty at the end and are unusually hot once the cycle ends, you likely have a clog. If you see lint and debris around the lint filter, the laundry room feels excessively hot while the dryer is running and you’re finding an unusually large amount of lint in the lint trap, you likely have a problem. Finally, if you see debris inside the dryer vent opening outside, there’s not enough air exiting the dryer vent outside to open the flaps while its running and it’s taking longer than 40 minutes to dry a load of clothes, it’s time to pick up the phone and schedule an appointment with Confident Aire.

Protect you and your family from a devastating fire and save money on your electric bill by taking proper care of your dryer.

For nearly 25 years, Confident Aire has served the heating, air conditioning and plumbing needs of many people like you. 416 E. Wilson St., Batavia. (630) 761-9007.
