A Clean Dryer Vent Saves Money and Prevents Fires

By Dave Trosdahl on March 15th, 2008

A Clean Dryer Vent Provides Safety, Shortens Drying Time & Saves You Money!

You put your clothes in the dryer 2 hours ago and they’re still not dry! Sound familiar?If so, it might be time for you to have your dryer vent cleaned. If you can tell that your dryer is working properly (heating up and tumbling) most likely you have a plugged clothes dryer vent.

Benefits of a Clean Dryer Vent:

  • Faster drying times – the damp air is vented outdoors instead of recirculating within the tumbler.
  • A clean dryer vent saves you money – The longer it takes to dry your clothes, the more energy you consume. Most homeowners realize enough energy savings the first 3 months to pay for the service call.
  • Fire hazard is prevented – the lint which has built-up over time in the heating chamber and dryer vent is removed, eliminating spontaneous combustion due to excessive heat.

Cost of Dryer Vent Cleaning

Dryer vent cleaning prices vary from one company to the next. Another factor is who is doing it. An appliance repairman is much more expensive than a professional dryer vent cleaning company. Prices seem to vary from $65 when included with another service already being performed at your home (duct cleaning for example), to $199 if a special trip is made. Some companies charge more for dryer vents which are seriously plugged or are vented two stories up through the roof.

Look for a company that will give you a guaranteed price. If they need to come out to do an inspection and give a quote, expect to pay much more. At Duct-911.com the price is always guaranteed; $65 when included with air duct cleaning, or $99 for dryer vent cleaning only.Remember, the same equipment which is uysed for duct cleaning is also used to clean dryer vents.

By Dave Trosdahl on October 8th, 2007

Several of you have asked and we have answered; YES we now provide special pricing for condos, townhomes and homeowner associations. While the $99 is very competitive, we can do even better on the price if we are able to spend all day working in the same area.

If you are part of a community where several of you would like to band together to get a lower price on air duct cleaning, furnace cleaning, dryer vent cleaning or any other cleaning need you might have, simply call or email us at sales [AT] duct-911.com. We will dizcuss the details with you over the phone to determine a competitive price.

We realize many homeowner associations and condos are required to have their dryer vents cleaned on a regular basis. We have enjoyed working with these groups in the past and would like to extend the offer to all. To get special pricing we need to perform a minimum of 5 jobs in the same area on the same day. If you are able to coordinate this, we would love to work with you.

Fall is Here – Time for Air Duct Cleaning and Dryer Vent Cleaning

By Dave Trosdahl on September 22nd, 2007

Today is the last day of summer, so that means tomorrow must be the first day of the air duct cleaning and dryer vent cleaning season. Although anytime is a good time to clean your dyer vent or your air ducts, it seems that most people prefer fall. If you are one of those people, you might want to get on the air duct cleaning schedule sooner than later. Our company has already seen a “spike” in business and we expect to have a very busy fall.

Perhaps, the sudden increase in people wanting their air ducts or dryer vents cleaned is because it was so hot this summer. Even though an efficient air duct cleaning technician doesn’t leave the outside doors open for very long at all, I am sure that homeowners still don’t like the thought of seeing their air conditioning dollars floating out the door. The same holds true in really cold weather.

Either way, now is the perfect time for duct work cleaning, a thorough furnace tune-up and dryer vent cleaning. Having it done this time of year will give you the piece of mind and the added insurance you need, so that you can know you have taken all the right steps to prepare for winter.

If you live in the Maryland, Virginia or Washington D.C. area please call: 443-927-2400
If you live in the Minneapolis and Saint Paul (Twin Cities) area please call: 651-653-4704

We will be adding additional air duct cleaning service locations nation wide, so check back often. We would eventually like to offer everyone from Florida to California and from New York to Arizona our $99 “Whole-House” Air Duct Cleaning Special!

Home Energy Saving Tips From Washington

By Dave Trosdahl on September 19th, 2007

Here are 5 energy saving tips from Energy Ideas Clearing House based in Washington. They have many tips from using the right light bulbs to refrigeration savings. We have published the ones directly related to Heating and cooling.

Home Energy Saving Tips.

  • Lower your thermostat at night and whenever the house is not occupied.
  • Tune up the furnace annually.
  • Replace furnace filters. The dirtier they are, the harder the fan furnace works. Clean filters are essential for heat pumps – airflow is critical and can add years to the life of your heat pump.
  • Insulate and seal ducts in attics, crawl spaces, garages and other unheated areas-potential big energy savings.
  • Furnaces, heat pumps, air conditioning and water eaters all have high efficiency models available and should be considered when replacing these appliances. – Replace conventional oil burner (oil furnace) with a more efficient flame-retention burner.
  • To read all of the home energy savings tips (even those unrelated to your heating and cooling system) visit energyideas.org. Additionally, you might want to search the entire Duct-911.com website for many heating and cooling, dryer vent cleaning tips and air duct cleaning tips.

    Spring is Here and it’s Air Duct Cleaning Time!

    By Dave Trosdahl on April 20th, 2007

    Okay, anytime is a good time to have your air ducts cleaned if your ductwork is dirty. But with winter over, spring is a great time to clean your furnace, air conditioner, dryer vents, and of course your air ducts.

    If you are live in Minnesota, your windows have been closed all winter and your furnace has been recirculating much of the same old, stale air. Perhaps you or someone in your house was sick and this winter and of course that means bacteria and other germs. This is often referred to as “sick building syndrome

    Now would be a great time to clean the most important appliances in your home; the furnace and air ducts, the a/c and the clothes dryer.
