Dryer vents are very common in modern homes and allow hot, humid air from a clothes dryer to escape. One issue specific to dryer vents is that lint is in the hot air that is being ventilated. Over time, this lint builds up in the ducting and vent, degrading the dryer’s performance. In extreme cases, this lint can become a fire hazard and result in massive property damage if a fire starts.
At Calvey Heating and Air, we have years of experience installing, repairing, and cleaning dryer vents. We use a high-tech tool that combines a brush and vacuum to remove lint from your dryer vent, and improve your dryer’s performance. We also use a camera system to inspect the ducts after cleaning. Additionally, we also fabricate custom ductwork for your dryer and can install new vents as well as repair existing vents.
