Cheaper Electricity Bills – Energy Saving Tips

Did you know that the vent for your clothes dryer could be costing you money on your monthly electric bill.?  This is because of two reasons. You can probably guess the first reason, but the second is a bit less obvious.

Let’s start with the obvious.

If your dryer vent is full of lint, your dryer is not able to do its job as efficiently as it should.  A restricted vent allows less of the moist air to make it out of the dryer to the outside of your home.  This means the dryer must run longer to get your clothes dry.

We should also point out that a lint-clogged vent can lead to fire.  It can also cause mold to grow in and around the vent lines, because the vent traps moister due to restricted air flow.

Now for the second reason the dryer vent can be causing your electricity bill to be higher than necessary.  If the outside outlet of the vent is placed near your exterior air conditioning unit, it is allowing lint to clog up the a/c unit’s condenser coils, this lowers its energy efficiency.

Does this mean you need to relocate your vent or a/c unit? Not at all.  But it does mean you need to regularly clean the coils with a hose.  It only takes a couple of minutes, but the energy savings will be lasting.
