Notes From Kerry
I’m sure glad I got my new Microwave Fireplace installed! Now Julie and I can spend an entire evening relaxing by the fire in only 8 minutes!
HOW’S YOUR DRYER?
Does your dryer seem to be gradually taking longer and longer drying your clothes, or maybe your dryer is no longer drying clothes at all. Why put up with your dryer not drying clothes? There are several factors to consider before you think about needlessly purchasing a new dryer. Some of the most common issues we have seen are the following which include but are not limited to:
- How wet the clothes are coming out of the washer,
- The load may be too large for the size of dryer,
- Maybe there is a technical problem with thermostats,
- By far the most likely problem is in the venting.
Dryer venting systems that were originally OK may get resticted over time by lint getting caught on the outside vent louvers so they don’t open properly or perhaps the hose is pinched behind the dryer, but if you slow down the velocity of the air moving through the pipe, lint will lay down throughout the entire length of the system and inside the dryer cabinet.
Not only does this ruin your dryer’s efficiency and cost you money on your power bill, it also makes a dangerous dryer fire possible. This is usually a fairly simple fix to clean out the entire system (although it can be nasty), but the important part of the repair is to improve the system enough to make it so it doesn’t happen again.
If this happening you must take it seriously. Instead of your dryer no longer drying clothes, you will notice your dryer doing its job the way it was meant to once you clean out the vent. If you are unsure if you can do it properly, give us a call and we will take care of it for you quickly, efficiently and at a reasonable cost.
