Insurance Association data points to washer and dryers as the fourth leading cause of residential fires, and vents obstructed by dust, lint and debris are a major factor. Older homes typically would place these appliances on an outside wall, minimizing the distance for a vent run. Many modern home designs move them to interior spaces, making the vent run longer and often adding in multiple turns to get to the exhaust port. These developments contribute to an increase in dryer vent fires because of the greater potential for lint and debris accumulation over the greater distance. Northstar Services can inspect and clean the entire vent, including the dryer and attached hose to make sure the airflow is as it should be.
The Federal Emergency Management Administration reports almost 3000 dryer vent fires per year, contributing to 35 million dollars in property damage. They also point to some signs that may warn you of insufficient air movement. Look for clothes that are not dry within forty minutes, clothes that come our excessively hot or unusual odor from the dryer or clothing. You can also monitor the airflow coming out of the wall vent on the outside.
In addition to reducing fire risks, a clear dryer vent will improve the energy efficiency of the appliance as well as take better care of your clothing. Proper ventilation allows the moist air wicking from your clothes to escape to the outside of your home. This will reduce both drying time and the possibility of mold and mildew. It also regulates the amount of heat in the dryer, so the temperature called for on your garment care tags can be maintained properly. You can save money on utilities as well as clothing by keeping your air flowing at its top speed.
The quality of your indoor air relies heavily upon the free flow of air through your HVAC system, especially during colder months when windows are closed and fresh air is scarce. Forced air systems clean the air every time it passes the integrated air filter, so the faster the air circulates, the cleaner the air. Air handling systems are designed by the builders to move the air at a certain speed to maintain health and safety, so any impediments to free airflow can contribute to mold, mildew and potential pathogens. Anyone with breathing difficulties will want to be even more diligent. Having your air ducts inspected and cleaned by Northstar Services in Carmichael CA will ensure maximum system efficiency and the best air quality for you and your family.
