Your Dryer Vent is Costing You Money
By now you are wondering just how your dryer vent could be costing you money. When you have a clean dryer vent, the hot, damp air can get pushed out from the dryer allowing the drier air into the machine to help dry your clothes. When your dryer vent is clogged with dust and lint, the blower motor needs to work harder to get the same amount of hot, damp air out of the dryer to replace with dry air. This can mean that your dryer is working harder than it should, leading to a shortened life. Not only that, but it might require that you run your clothes through more than one drying cycle to get them fully dry.
Signs You Need a Dryer Vent Cleaning
There are several signs that you should be aware of that will indicate that you should have your dryer vent cleaned. As was mentioned earlier, if you are finding that you need to run your dryer multiple cycles to fully dry your clothes, this could be a good indication that your dryer vent is clogged and could benefit from being cleaned. Another indication is if you smell a slight burning or burnt scent. Because lint is flammable, this can mean that some lint is trapped in your dryer vent and is getting hot enough to potentially catch on fire.
Another indication that you could benefit from a dryer vent cleaning is if your dryer feels very hot at the end of a cycle. Because your dryer is working harder to get rid of the hot, moist air, the machine itself is hotter than normal. If you are outside of your home and you see some lint coming from the exhaust opening for your dryer vent, this is an indication of needing a dryer vent cleaning. Finally, if it has been several years since you last had it cleaned, it is time to schedule a dryer vent cleaning.
