Dryer Vent Cleaning for Summer Home Efficiency

Summer is here and in full swing, which for many means higher energy bills to keep the inside of your home cool. If you are looking for ways to increase your efficiency, and therefore lower your bills, consider dryer vent cleaning in Shoreview! At Vent Guys, we offer comprehensive dryer vent cleaning services to the whole Twin Cities area.

Clean dryer vents can help improve the efficiency of your home in more than just one way. First, clean dryer vents mean that less heat will be given off in your laundry room. The less heat your home creates, the simpler it is to keep it cool. And the simpler it is to keep your home cool, the lower your energy bills are.

Additionally, clean dryer vents mean that your dryer can work more efficiently. When your dryer vents become clogged, you will often need to run your dryer for multiple cycles to dry your clothes fully. However, a vent cleaned by a professional will help your dryer work as it should once again. This can increase your efficiency by requiring less energy to dry your clothes, and by producing less heat through extra, unnecessary cycles.

With dryer vent cleaning you can help not only your dryer work more efficiently, but also require less work from your air conditioning unit to keep your home cool. Overall, a clean dryer vent can help you save money all year long – not just in the summer.

Dryer vent cleaning offers more benefits than just the increased home efficiency too! By having dryer vent cleaning professionally performed, you can also save your own time on laundry by cutting down on dryer cycles. In addition to that, you can also ensure the safety of your family by reducing the risk of a dryer fire occurring due to clogged vents.

With all of these benefits, it’s hard to see why anyone would choose not to have dryer vent cleaning performed! Especially when it’s as simple as making a call to Vent Guys. We will come to your home and make sure that your dryer vent is thoroughly cleaned and ready to perform its best.

Schedule Your Magic Pak Cleaning for This Spring

Does your apartment complex utilize an all-in-one package unit such as Magic Pak, Comfort Pack or Skypak? Have you had routine cleaning performed for your all-in-one package unit recently? If not, then it’s time to schedule your Magic Pak cleaning in Shoreview or the surrounding Twin Cities area this spring!

Spring is a great time to schedule your routine Magic Pak or other all-in-one package unit cleaning. While you are already thinking of spring cleaning, it can be an easy reminder that it’s time to consider whether your Magic Pak requires cleaning again.

However, you may be wondering why it’s important to periodically schedule Magic Pak cleaning. The answer is simple – periodic cleaning can increase the efficiency of your system, increase the life of the appliance, help reduce the risk of the unit freezing up in high use times, and find pests before they present a larger problem. To prevent prematurely needing to install a brand-new system, make sure to keep up with preventative maintenance, including cleaning. Regular cleanings can save you money in the long run by keeping your HVAC system functional and efficient for longer!

When you hire Vent Guys to handle Magic Pak, Comfort Pak or Skypak cleaning, our process starts off with a site inspection and estimate – that way you have an idea of what to expect prior to starting the job. Next, we thoroughly clean the coils with a custom-made compressed air-powered coil cleaning tool. Once the coils are clean, we will communicate any potential issues we have found to you – that way you can decide on a game plan to take care of them.

Magic Pak cleaning is not something to be ignored. By scheduling periodic cleanings, you can avoid more costly maintenance caused by an uncleaned unit. Without cleanings, your unit could be at risk of leaks or other issues that require emergency repairs – rather than less expensive, preventative ones.

We work with apartment complexes, multi-housing communities and commercial properties in Shoreview and the surrounding Twin Cities area. If you have an all-in-one package unit, we can help maintain its efficiency through periodic cleaning! Plus, we can normally perform cleaning from the outside of the building, so unless the coil is not accessible from the outside, we won’t cause any disruption to your residents!

Keep your residents comfortable by scheduling Magic Pak, Comfort Pack or Skypak cleaning today! Contact Vent Guys today to schedule your Magic Pak cleaning in Shoreview and the surrounding Twin Cities area! Call us at 612-492-1342 or contact us!

Start the New Year with Dryer Vent Cleaning

Laundry is an inevitable chore on every home’s to-do list, but when it starts taking longer than normal, it’s not something to just adjust to. Longer drying times is a major sign that you are overdue for dryer vent cleaning in Blaine! Here at Vent Guys, we specialize in dryer vent cleaning and want to help you start off the new year on the right foot.

While many may be tempted to push off dryer vent cleaning and accept the seemingly inevitable increase in time spent on laundry, that is not the best choice. The best choice is to schedule dryer vent cleaning with a reputable company, like Vent Guys.

Having your dryer vent cleaned regularly, over time, can save you time on drying and money on energy bills. An efficient dryer is more than worth the cost of having dryer vent cleaning performed.

Plus, once laundry takes the normal amount of time again, you will have more time to focus on other tasks around the house, including spending time relaxing with your family.

If you aren’t sure if it’s time for dryer vent cleaning, consider the following questions:

How long has it been since dryer vent cleaning was performed?

If it has been 1 year or more, then it’s time to give us a call! However, if you can’t remember how long it has been, chances are it’s time to schedule!

Are you smelling anything musty or burning?

Both of these can indicate that your dryer vent is clogged and requires cleaning. If you smell burning, you need an appliance repair company to look at the internals of the dryer and have that cleaned and inspected as well as a dryer vent cleaning.

Is your dryer taking more than one cycle to dry clothes?

Increased drying times is one of the major indicators that it is time to schedule dryer vent cleaning.

Is there a significant amount of lint accumulating around or behind the dryer?

This can indicate that your dryer vent is clogged, meaning that the lint has nowhere else to go. Or it could indicate that your vent is not properly connected or in disrepair, we also offer dryer vent repair and improvement services.

So, this year, get your dryer vent cleaning scheduled! It’s a great way to start the year on the right foot. Make 2023 the year for efficiency and extra time to spend with your family.

Signs You are Overdue for Dryer Vent Cleaning

Dryer vent cleaning can help protect your home and family from dryer fires. It’s important to be proactive by keeping your lint traps clean and scheduling annual cleanings. However, sometimes it can be hard to know exactly when the right time is to schedule that necessary cleaning.

Luckily, there are warning signs that it is indeed time for dryer vent cleaning in New Brighton!

1. Increased Drying Times

Some still believe that longer drying times or requiring multiple cycles to dry your clothes is a sign that you need a new dryer altogether. However, in reality it normally means that you need dryer vent cleaning performed. When lint builds up and becomes trapped in the vent, your dryer works harder and less efficiently, causing it to require more and more time to complete its job.

2. Musty Smells

If your dryer vents become clogged and your clothes take longer to dry, this can sometimes also cause a musty smell in your clothes. The musty smell results from dryers being inefficient and not removing all the moisture from your clothes, leaving them damp. If musty smells become more normal from your dryer, it’s time to take action and give us a call to clean your dryer vents!

3. Burning Smells

However, musty smells are not the worst smell that could be caused by clogged dryer vents. Sometimes a sign that dryer vents require cleaning is a burning smell. This smell is caused by your dryer overheating due to lint accumulating near the dryer heat supply. If you notice a burning smell coming from your dryer – turn it off immediately and contact Vent Guys. The safest choice is to avoid using your dryer again until a professional can inspect and clean your dryer vents.

A burning smell can often be caused by some of the lint catching fire at one point. That’s why it is just as important that you have an appliance company come out to inspect and clean your dryer itself as it is you have vent cleaning performed.

When it comes to dryer vent cleaning, it really is an easy choice. Contact Vent Guys today to schedule your dryer vent cleaning in New Brighton and the surrounding Twin Cities area! Call us at 612-492-1342 or contact us!
