If you said part of the warp drive on the USS Enterprise, you’re mistaken! Actually many homeowners share a common problem and don’t realize what the cause is or how to solve it. If it takes an unusually long time to dry clothes in your clothes dryer this just might be the cure.
Depending on the construction of your home and exactly where the dryer is located there is a possibility that the vent leading to the outside is longer than it should be. The maximum recommended length of this vent is 25 ft. If it is longer than that your dryer is working much too hard to get the job done and will take much longer time than usual to dry your laundry.
Installing a dryer duct booster will dramatically improve the performance of your dryer and will shorten the time it takes to finish a load. Other benefits include extending the life of your appliance as well as considerable savings on your electric bill. One thing to keep in mind, every bend in the exhaust vent is equivalent to about 5 feet of length. This means that a 15 foot section of vent with 2 “bends” in it is the same as a 25 foot long vent.
The job of a dryer duct booster is to increase the airflow in the exhaust duct and that will make a world of difference in how long it will take for clothes to dry. The unit will turn on automatically when the dryer is being used and off again when it is not required. They actually consume very little electricity and therefore actually save you money by reducing the amount of time that your dryer is running. See that? You now have a solution to a problem that you didn’t even know you had!
