Why You Should Care About Your Dryer Ducts

Clean dryer ducts isn’t a service to shrug off and never pay any mind to. By ignoring this task, you are putting your home at a higher risk for fire. When contemplating the advantages of clean dryer ducts, keep in mind the following points:

  • Dryers clogged with lint are one of the leading causes of house fires.
  • Clean ducts reduce drying time, therefore reducing power bills.
  •  The life expectancy of your dryer will increase when it’s kept clean.
  • The risk of heating elements and limit switches failing is dramatically lowered. 

With newer high-efficiency dryers, clean ducts are more important than ever. On these newer models, dryer ducts have been shortened to accommodate new manufacturer restrictions. Because of this, they cannot push air as far as their predecessors. As a result, a clogged dryer duct that may be the correct length achieves the same results of a clean duct that is too long. In either case, the question of premature failure of the dryer is not “if” but rather “when.” 

To prevent such costly and hazardous damages, reach out to the pros at McDowell Heating & Air today to schedule your air duct cleaning service!
