AdvantaClean helps homeowners reduce energy costs, protect their families, and extend the life of their dryers through regular dryer vent cleaning.
Is my Dryer Vent causing an Increase in Energy Costs?
There's an unseen enemy in your home, and its gobbling up electricity and costing you hundreds of dollars a year. The vent that leads from your laundry room to the exterior of your home gathers lint and debris every time you run your dryer, and becomes more constricted as days, weeks, and months pass.
The clothes dryer uses more electricity than any other appliance in most homes, and in peak operating condition costs anywhere from $200 to $500 to operate each year. Add a partially restricted vent and that cost can double, costing homeowners up to $1000 a year just to run the clothes dryer.
Can Dirty Dryer Vents cause Dryer Vent Fires?
Don't be a statistic- neglected dryer exhaust vents cause thousands of fires each year. $35 million dollars. That's how much damage fires caused by clogged dryer vents cause in a single year in the USA. In addition to the financial cost, homeowners pay for their mistake through injury and death. These fires are entirely preventable, making them all the more tragic.
When a dryer exhaust vent is constricted even 10%, the dryer has to work harder to do its job. This means more heat, far more than dryers are designed to generate or withstand. Overheated dryers are a major hazard, and can (and do) catch fire without warning.
DIY Dryer Vent Cleaning
Restricted dryer vents are impossible to see, but easily prevented or remedied by professionals.
In many homes, the dryer exhaust vent runs through walls, ceilings, and attics. Its impossible for most homeowners to thoroughly inspect the hose, meaning the vent can become restricted and clogged without any apparent symptoms. Its for this reason that regular dryer vent maintenance is vital to home safety.
