Why does it take my clothes dryer so long to dry my clothes?
You might have noticed that it seems like it takes your clothes dryer forever to dry loads. It’s not your imagination; clothes dryers with long exhausts take longer to dry laundry, use more electricity, and increase wear and tear on the dryer.
Clothes dryers in homes with long clothes dryer duct work -0 like those in apartment buildings , condos or homes that vent through the attic — have to work harder to push air through the long vents, causing longer dryer cycles and higher internal temperatures inside the dryer. This could result in the following:
- Clothing and laundry becoming scorched or damaged due to higher internal temperatures
- Longer dryer cycles
- Decrease in the lifespan of your appliance and possibly more repairs
- Increased possibility of lint build-up and obstruction that can lead to a fire
A Clothes Dryer Vent Booster, like the Dryer Jet Model 9400, can reduce drying times and save energy for clothes dryers and you can now purchase it online at APWagner.com. It’s easy to install to your dryer vent or install right next to dryer. It turns on and off automatically when the dryer turns on and off. No lint trap needed if installing next to the dryer and no lint trap means no automatic lint build-up.
How does it work? The Dryer Jet increases the airflow of the exhaust for a clothes dryer. The Dryer jet allows the clothes dryer to run cleaner and shortens drying times by allowing the dryer to run more efficiently.
