Glastonbury Dryer Vent Cleaning Wizard Installs Safer and More Efficient Systems

Though the concept dryer ventilation is rather simple, there are several common errors people make that can be critical to safety and efficiency



Glastonbury CT – The Glastonbury Dryer Vent Cleaning Wizard provides sound advice to homeowners about dryer vent installation and maintenance. Though dryer ventilation is a rather simple concept, there are several critical errors homeowners commonly make that can lead to disaster.

John Moffat, owner of Dryer Vent Wizard finds something wrong with 9 out of 10 dryer vent systems he inspects. One very common issue is people using the vinyl or flexible foil dryer vent tubes that they purchase as a kit from the local home improvement store. This material, designed for bathroom exhaust fan, is not safe for dryer vents.

According to Dryer Vent Wizard (, current safety codes call for a solid metal dryer vent system properly installed to allow adequate air flow for maximum dryer performance. The dryer duct should be smooth inside and its path should be as short and straight as possible to maximize air flow. Longer dryer vent systems with bends and turns will hinder air flow and allow lint to build up more quickly.

The Wizard explains how it is more difficult to push air through a longer dryer vent system because the air inside has weight and volume. The average clothes dryer can handle venting through about 20 feet if there are no bends or turns. The length should be reduced when 45 or 90 degree elbows are necessary.

Though failure to clean dryer vents is the number one cause of dryer fires, poorly installed dryer vent systems can also be a hazard. John Moffat specializes in dryer vent installation and maintenance for homes and business while he educates consumers on dryer fire prevention and energy savings.
