It’s laundry day and you’re cycling clothes like a marathon runner – slow and steady all day long. It seems odd that the clothes are still a little damp at the end of the regular dry cycle. No big deal. You set the dryer for an extra 15 minutes and that seems to do it.


But wait! An extra 15 minutes every time you dry clothes is going to add up. How will that affect your utility bill? And when did this problem start to rear its ugly head anyways? The regular cycle used to cut it but not anymore…

Does this scenario sound familiar? Unfortunately, clothes dryers are frequently neglected by well-intending homeowners. The lint filter may be emptied frequently but the venting system is often ignored. What most people don’t know is that as much as 50% of the lint generated by a gas dryer gets past the filter and enters the vent to the outside. There, the lint accumulates in a thick layer and prevents healthy air flow. This reduces the dryer’s efficiency and creates the “damp clothing” effect. The worst case scenario? The trapped lint can cause a disastrous fire.


The heating and cooling specialists at Titan Heating and Cooling are available to do a thorough inspection and cleaning of your dryer vent. Your family’s safety is our number one priority.
