Dryer Vent Maintenance
The single most important function of a dryer is the removal of moisture recovered throughout the heating of damp clothing. This moisture is held in the warm air produced by the dryer as humidity, and is generally expelled to the outdoors from the dryer’s vent. If the air can not be sufficiently removed, inadequate drying will result.
This moisture may also condense into pools of water in the dryer vent, ultimately leaking out. Any moisture build up inside the dryer ducting is often a sign of poor ventilation that ought to be investigated. Contact the professionals at Home Pros Group for Edmonton Dryer Vent Cleaning .

GOOD VENTING IS ALL-IMPORTANT
There are numerous issues that promote the proper functioning of a clothes dryer. The venting is perhaps the most important. Below we describe a dryer’s functions and just how its venting plays a part.
One of the most important functions of a dryer is the elimination of moisture recovered during the heating of damp clothing. This moisture is locked in the heated air produced by the dryer as humidity, and it is normally removed to the outside from the dryer’s vent. If the air can’t be adequately taken out, poor drying will result.
This moisture may also condense into pools of water in the dryer vent, ultimately leaking out. Any moisture accumulation inside the dryer ducting is often a sign of poor venting which should be investigated. Schedule Home Pros Group for cleaning and inspection.
The heat is another essential function of a dryer. Many current dryer models have a ‘one-time’, non-resettable, thermal fuse or safety. These safety devices will open should the dryer’s vent is not set up correctly, or if it becomes limited. Once this occurs, the dryer will no longer heat and will require the part to be changed to correct the condition. On some dryer designs (usually gas) failure of one of these thermal fuses will totally stop the dryer functioning completely.
On older designs without a thermal safety, poor venting may cause the dryer to cycle on its safety thermostat, instead of the temperature control thermostat. This usually plays a part in poor drying and can cause overheating. On some models, the malfunctioning of the timer affects some cycles.
