“Howe” Clean is Your Dryer Vent?

How often do you lean your dryer vent in San Diego? HVAC manager, Miguel Sanchez, at Bill Howe Heating & Air recommends this process at least once a year to keep your dryer at its optimal running condition and to maintain safe use of your appliance. Did you know that San Diego Heating & Air conditioning companies also perform this service? Most people do not realize the importance of dryer vent cleaning until it is too late, and that is why Bill Howe’s NATE certified specially trained HVAC technicians carry the proper equipment at all times and can properly clean your residential vent line.

If you suspect a clogged or partially clogged venting, or you have never thought about it at all, it is likely time to have them inspected and a cleaning performed. If your dryer vent is clogged, the dryer has to work harder during the drying cycle, and may require running clothes longer than is recommended. This increases your energy usage as well as damaging clothing over time.

Clean and unobstructed dryer vents allow for efficient drying time, add longevity to clothing life and can even reduce utility bills. Just like cleaning the lint screen after each cycle, it is important to remove the buildup and dust from the dryers vent line.

bill howe warns of dryer fire dangersNot only can your clogged dryer vent lead to increased utility bills and reduced clothing life, it can be a very real danger to your home and family. Clogged dryer vents pose a serious risk for house fires when the debris buildup inside of the vent restricts the airflow heating up and then igniting. Just like keeping a fully tuned and maintained HVAC unit is important for your home’s safety, your dryer has the same potential for danger if left not maintained.

Although the process may appear at first simple, in San Diego heating & air conditioning technicians are trained on the mechanics of proper venting and can properly assess the need and process to keep your dryer running safely and in top condition.

One method of routine cleaning involves an air-propelled snake through the vent line, much like clogged drains, the process involves snaking the line with the proper equipment blowing the air 360 degrees backwards, blasting the lint and debris loose and collecting it in a special bag.

If the clog is more severe, it may require removal of the dryer, dismantling the vent system and using a larger blower through the line. But, whatever the necessary procedure, Bill Howe’s expertly trained and certified San Diego heating & air conditioning technicians are available to help, day and night.

What Andy B. via Lennox Pro says about us

We have been using Bill Howe Plumbing’s service for more than 25 years and have been pleasantly surprised at how consistently they perform an excellent service call. We use them for our home and our rental properties, and their dispatchers and technicians have always been the best at problem solving; our tenants have told us how great the service is as well. When we needed air conditioning service, naturally we called Bill Howe first. There’s no reason to call anyone else. I know the job will be done right the first time, with fair pricing and professional service.
