Dryer Vent Installation

Dryer Vent Installation Kansas City West:  The Kansas City Dryer Vent Installation Wizard is the go-to guy for dryer exhaust safety.  Poorly installed dryer vent systems can be a fire hazard and an energy hog!

The automatic clothes dryer is a wonderful invention, very convenient and much easier than using a clothes line!  But, it does come with a price.  The clothes dryer, whether gas or electric, is one of the most expensive appliances to operate.  A poorly vented dryer will cost $200 – 300 more in energy bills and create a fire hazard.

Where does the heat, moisture and lint go while as your clothes tumble dry?  Code states that dryer exhaust must be vented outside; however, some dryers are vented to a crawl space or an attic, causing mold and mildew problems which lead to property damage and upper respiratory illness for sensitive residents.

If you have a gas dryer, the dryer vent system is also removing gas by-products from your home, including carbon monoxide.  Proper dryer vent cleaning, installation and maintenance are vital to your safety.

As your clothes dryer runs the blower motor pushes hot, moist air and lint out of your home; however, there is a limit as to how far it can push the air.  If the duct is too long or the dryer vent  is clogged with lint, air flow is reduced, creating a serious fire hazard.  The type of vent, length of pipe and material used affects how your dryer vent system functions.

A smooth metal material is much better than the plastic corrugated ducts that were used in the past.  Plastic and vinyl material deteriorates, becoming cracked and brittle over time, causing overheating and adding fuel to the fire.  Dryer vent cleaning specialists only use semi-rigid metal for dryer vent systems today.

Reducing the number of bends and turns is very important for optimal air flow and less lint accumulation.  In cooler climates, it’s a good idea to insulate your dryer venting pipe to prevent condensation which will run down the pipe and can even pool under your dryer. 

The inside of the dryer duct should be very smooth to allow optimum air flow.  Sections of dryer ducts should be joined with foil tape, not screws which protrude inside the ducts, where lint can become caught and accumulate.
