Having your dryer vents cleaned regularly can also help to reduce the impact that you have on the environment. A dryer can eat up a significant amount of energy when used. By making the appliance more efficient, you are cutting down on the amount of time that it has to run, causing it to burn less energy, which is more environmentally friendly.
When your dryer vents are clear the machine will also operate a lot more efficiently. The flow of air will require less power, which can save you money on your energy bills. This effect will be more profound with very clogged systems, so if you haven’t had a professional clean your dryer vents in a long time then there is no better time than now.
Another important benefit of dryer vent cleaning is it can help your appliance last longer over time. It will also reduce the number of costly repairs that will be required to keep it operating. If the dryer ducts get clogged, dangerous heat can build up which can do damage to the machine, melting metal and putting undue stress on its components. Cleaning the dryer vent will reduce the amount of heat that is able to concentrate, saving your appliance from developing extra issues.
Clean air allows you to use your heat and air conditioning system without blowing harmful bacteria throughout your home. Air duct cleaning is essential to keeping your indoor air quality better. It reduces dust build-up, giving relief to allergy sufferers, and increases air flow throughout your home.
Air duct cleaning should be considered by anyone who wants to reduce dust circulation and make their heating and cooling system run more efficient. In an average newly constructed home there is approximately 5 to 8 pounds of dust trapped within the A/C system if your vents are not properly sealed off during the construction process. If you have an older A/C system with fiber board ducts, we typically recommend replacement with the newer flex duct system.
