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 Sweeps 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.
