All clothes dryers should be vented to the outdoors to prevent a number of hazards including dryer fires and carbon monoxide poisoning
Valley Stream NY – When asked if indoor dryer vents are a safe way to maintain heat and moisture during the dryer season the Dryer Vent Installation Wizard says they are a poor choice. Inferior dryer vent systems including indoor dryer vents can allow excess heat and moisture into homes, leading to mold and mildew problems. Though indoor dryer vent systems are available, they are not adequate. Bob Dougherty, owner of Dryer Vent Wizard, recommends all clothes dryers be properly vented outdoors.
One of the drawbacks of indoor dryer vent systems is that they must be kept full of water to trap lint while the warm air filters into the room. Even worse, the flimsy flexible foil duct can very easily become crushed and block airflow from the dryer and cause it to over heat. Like all fuel-burning appliances, gas dryers must be properly vented to the outdoors to emit gas byproducts like carbon monoxide.
The Wizard urges homeowners to have professional dryer vent installation performed by a qualified technician to ensure safety. The Wizard only installs dryer ducts to vent outdoors to prevent dryer fires and other dryer related hazards. This can be difficult for some homeowners, especially if they need to cut through cement block to slide the dryer duct through, but it is all in a day’s work for the Wizard (http://valleystream.dryerventcleaningnow.com/) who is familiar with a number of dryer vent configurations. Rerouting dryer vents, installing new dryer vents and cleaning dryer vents is routine work for a qualified dryer exhaust technician.
Dryer Vent Wizard specializes in dryer exhaust and he has the knowledge and equipment required to install a safe and efficient dryer vent system. Professional dryer vent installation ensures clothes dryers are fire-safe and energy-efficient. The cost of professional dryer vent installation is little compared to the damage done to homes by excess heat and moisture.
