The benefits a dryer vent inspection offers homeowners
An annual dryer vent inspection is recommended to ensure your dryer vent is clean and working efficiently. When your dryer vent is working efficiently you will have a reduced drying time. This will not only ensure the efficiency of your dryer but save you money on energy bills. An annual inspection will lengthen the lifespan of your dryer and save you on a replacement being needed for some time. During an inspection, your vents will be checked for any mold build-up. when your dryer cannot efficiently exhaust hot moist air, the air will condensate and turn to water, which can cause mold. Arguably the biggest benefit of having an annual vent inspection conducted would be to reduce your risk of fires caused by lint build-up.
What happens if I leave my dryer vent to become clogged?
When your dryer vent becomes clogged, your laundry will take longer to get completely dry. If your vent is blocked, it will cause the air to sit inside the dryer and expel into the laundry room, which will cause an overly warm environment, which in turn can be a breeding ground for some bacteria. Dryer lint is highly flammable, so when your vent is clogged it can pose a fire hazard. A clogged vent will cause a much longer run time for your dryer and pull a lot more energy when running. This is not good for the environment or your finances, not to mention the shorter lifespan the longer run times will cause your vent to have.
What does a dryer vent tech look for during an inspection?
A dryer vent may seem like a part of an appliance inside your home that does not play an important role. Until yours is out of commission, you may not realize the importance of it. Because of this, it is recommended you keep your vent maintained professionally. During an inspection, your vents will be checked to ensure that they are working efficiently and are safe to operate. The vent connection will be checked to ensure the pipes are connected properly. The pipes and lint traps will be cleaned and checked for any damage to ensure your dryer is working safely.
Why does your brand-new home need a dryer vent inspection?
When you buy a new home, you may not think it is important to get a dryer vent inspection right away. We suggest you clean your dryer vent as soon as you move in, to ensure it is working safely and efficiently and to start you off in good stead with your maintenance plan. When you purchase a new home, unless you are handed a report from a reputable company, you cannot be sure when your vent was last cleaned or checked on. This can cause a range of issues and possibly even put your home at risk of fires.
