Important Appliance Safety & Fire Prevention Facts

 

Clogged Dryer Vents...
More Than Annoying

 

Besides preventing fast drying action, excessive lint build-up in dryer vents can cause the dryer's temperature limit safety switch to continuously cycle on and off, resulting in (1) higher dryer operation costs, (2) clothing damage or; (3) overheating, which could eventually ignite the lint, leading to a dryer fire. Fortunately, this problem has a fast and economical solution. The key to optimal dryer performance is insuring proper dryer exhaust airflow.

 

Your dryer is collecting lint inside itself as you use it every day.  The vent to the outside is doing the same and as the venting becomes more restricted; a gas dryers flame is now loosing the draft to draw it to the back of the flame tube as it should be.  The flame is now coming to the front of the tube and has the capability to catch the carpet of lint within on fire and then could expand into the area of your home.  An electric dryer is no safer.  Lint around the heating element will become the detonator that has the potential to burn your home to the ground!

 

Dryer vents should be maintained regularly, from the back of the machine to where they exit the home.  Flaps that keep out intruders must open easily to let out the heat and humidity.  The longer the piping and the more elbows, the more often the cleaning should be done.

 

Call 847-891-2000  now to set up an appointment to clean those venting problems you can’t get yourself.

 

Household icemakers in your refrigerator can become a serious problem causing water damage to your floors and thru out the house.  If the icemaker goes into a harvest cycle and doesn’t stop filling water, the potential is there.  All ice makers have either an on/off bar to raise and shut off ice production or a simple switch on the side or front of housing.  When nobody is home, the ice maker should be in the off position.  When you’re home in the evening or on weekends leave the switch or bar in the on position.  You don’t need ice when you’re not around!  

 

Water lines for the ice maker should never be installed with plastic tubing.  The tubing becomes hard and brittle over a period of time from heat behind the refrigerator at the condensing unit and also from hard water supply or other factors that influence water condition.  Copper tubing is best but there are also flexible metal products that can be purchased at local retailers. When using copper, make up large coils behind the refrigerator that can expand as the cooler is moved in and out of its space for cleaning or repairs.

 

Gas lines behind ovens and dryers, as with your heating system should be stainless steel and up to industry standards.  Small gas leaks can occur and become a real problem if not attended to early.
