Vented dryers pose safety risks and hazards for households, apartment communities, and condominiums. The problem with vented drying is because the dryer vent can become clogged with lint and other debris, blocking the dryer’s exhaust air from reaching the outdoors. As a result, the blocked heated air continues to heat the lint and other debris, until it reaches combustible temperatures and starts a fire. Another safety concern with blocked dryer vents is carbon monoxide being vented back into the home, as is common with gas dryers. These safety and hazard risks are easily eliminated with a new ventless dryer.
Why a Ventless Dryer Is Safer for Your Home
A ventless dryer does not require a dryer vent in order to exhaust heated air. Instead, the air is recirculated inside the dryer, using either air-to-air condensation drying or cold water condensation drying. All lint from the clothing is collected in a lint screen within the dryer. You do not have to worry about lint buildup in dryer vents, vents becoming blocked, carbon monoxide, or fires.
Air-to-air condensation drying uses two independent air circulation systems. One system heats the air and cycles it through a condenser, while the other draws in room temperature air to cool the heated air in the condenser and remove moisture. With cold water condensation drying, the heated air is cooled by cold water to remove moisture. For more information about ventless dryers, or for ordering assistance, call us at 800-875-1533.
