Mr. Appliance has introduced a new infographic giving consumers key benefits of having their dryer vents cleaned annually.
An obstructed dryer vent can be a serious problem. Not only do dryer vents clogged with lint cause the dryer to work less efficiently, causing longer drying times and higher energy bills, but they also can lead to an increased risk of trapped lint igniting, causing a fire in the dryer.
The infographic lists key benefits consumers can enjoy if they keep their dryer vents well-maintained, including:
- Shorter drying times. Clogged dryer vents restrict airflow, preventing moisture from leaving the dryer, keeping clothes damp longer.
- Decreased wear and tear on your dryer. Longer drying times means the dryer operating more often, increasing the natural wear of the machine.
- Reduced risk of dryer fire. Obstructed vents can cause lint in the dryer to become extremely hot and possible ignite.
- Lower electric bills. Less efficient drying means more energy used to dry clothes, resulting in higher utility bills.
Mr. Appliance recommends having dryer vents cleaned annually to ensure that the lint that is not being caught by the lint trap is not gathering in the ventilation system.
