Anderson’s Chimney and Masonry Services strives for excellence in all aspects of chimney care and customer service, but also by offering other services that help our customers stay safe and comfortable. In addition to comprehensive chimney care, we also offer dryer vent installations and cleaning, an important service for homeowners whether they’re new homeowners or have owned a home and a clothes dryer unit for years. Your clothes dryer may not seem important, but having it professionally installed and properly maintained is essential for safety and efficiency.
Did You Know?
Dryer vents should be professionally installed before use. That means only a professional Dryer Exhaust Technician (CDET) should install a clothes dryer vent. Only a professional knows the ins and outs of dry vent safety and installation, paying attention to local and federal fire safety standards and utilizing field and classroom training. Did you know:
- The dryer duct should be 4+ inches in diameter and as large as the dryer outlet
- The dryer vent should not exceed 25 feet in length when each 90-degree angle equals 5 feet
- Dryer vents should be independent of all other systems in the home
- Dryer vents should terminate outdoors and be equipped with a termination hood that doesn’t allow backdraft into the vent
- The dryer vent should include metal transition ducts between the dryer and exhaust ductwork
- Flexible transition ducts are unsafe for use in attics, crawlspaces, and inside walls
You should only trust a CSIA Certified Dryer Exhaust Technician with your dryer vent installation and cleaning. Not only is our team certified, but we’re experienced. We do not train on your home, and we wouldn’t want to because it may put you in danger! Dryer vent installation and cleaning prevents dangerous fires that devastate homes and put you in danger.
Dryer Vent Fires
According to the U.S. Fire Administration, there are 2,900 dryer vent fires reported each year. Of these fires, there are 5 deaths, 100 injuries, and $35 million in property loss each year. At Anderson’s, it’s our goal to bring this number down to zero. We do our part by providing dryer vent services year-round. According to FEMA, the majority of these fires are caused by failure to clean the clothes dryer unit, which means that these fires are 100 percent preventable.
Let us help you prevent dangerous fires in your home caused by neglected clothes dryers. Your free store delivery is not a professional installation. Call us to install your clothes dryer vent. When you have used your clothes dryer for a year, let us clean it. When you count on us to regularly clean your dryer vent, we can report our findings and let you know how often your vent will need services.
