Many of the beautiful homes here on the eastern seaboard were built before high energy, high efficiency appliances such as gas dryers were designed. As a result, the air flow permitted by the older, existing dryer vents does not sufficiently vent the dryer’s warm air discharge, and allow the dryer to operate efficiently.In other homes we see that the existing steel duct work is damaged, or corroded to the point it no longer provides an air tight path for escaping humidity and gas dryer carbon emissions.In other homes, old steel duct work was replaced by the homeowner, with corrugated aluminum or coiled poly-vinyl flexible ducts during the past 15 to 20 years. While these materials are still sold for the DIY market, they are prone to trap lint, and create potential fire hazards.Chadds Ford Chimney Sweep technicians are ready to install new dryer vents to replace these worn out, and substandard ducts. We use new galvanized or aluminum warm air ducts that meets or exceeds new home construction building codes. We make sure that your dryers are properly vented to the exterior of your home, rather than terminating in a crawlspace, or attic.
Call us today at 610-388-1316 to schedule a dryer vent installation that will bring your clothes dryer back to it’s designed efficiency, reduce high utility charges and eliminate a dangerous fire hazard.
Today it’s all about true relationships, true partnerships, real communication, great work and measurable results. And OK, a few choice words of praise from our clients.
“Extremely knowledgeable, professional and clean. They are not finished yet, as they had to treat my chimney with a chemical to loosen the creosote and will be back on December 20, 2008 to clean it. I was very impressed with two gentlemen who came out to do the work. I have no reason to expect that their work in cleaning the chimney will be any less than their first visit to treat the creosote. I would highly recommend them.”
“This was my second time using Chadds Ford Chimney Sweep. We had our air ducts, dryer vent and chimney cleaned. Kevin was clean, prompt and efficient. I have white carpeting in the living room, and you would never know they were there cleaning soot and ash!”
“The quality of the service was very good. Mr. Knight looked at all four of our chimneys and only recommended that one be cleaned. Although he was running late, he was kind enough to call well in advance and was very professional. We will certainly use him in the future and feel lucky to have found such a great company to work with.”
