WHY DRYER TECH

As a master appliance technician, I bring over 25 years of field service experience to your home, and since all I service is a select number of products, I am able to provide a higher level of knowledge and skill to ensure every repair is done properly.
Because I do all the work myself, I can be confident in the quality of the service I provide and thus am willing to back it all with a 1 year warranty on parts and labor which is unheard of in the industry. Vent installation and repairs are warranted for the life of the structure.
I am here to help you make your dryer work its best. My website is full of valuable information to help answer your questions. And if you need more personalized support, I am available to speak to you and help you with whatever problems you may be having. There are many ways to get ahold of me, simply pick the one that is most convenient and lets start a conversation.
I pride myself on offering superior service at a fair price. I may not be the cheapest, but I promise you I will provide the most overall value to you and your family. Never any hidden fees, bait and switch tactics or unexpected charges. My flat rate pricing is just that, and you will be provided with an actual estimate before any work is started.

Dryer Vent Booster Fan Installation and Repair

Dryer Booster Fan

Well I think it has been all of 3 weeks since I last spoke of dryer vent booster fans, but another booster fan had began to cause problems for this homeowner so it appears service was in order.  I have talked little about these booster fans simply because most homes do not possess them.  Technically by code, they are not allowed, but in some situation such as this multiplex unit, the building inspector must have felt (don’t feel, do the math) the distance to the outside for the dusting was more than enough to warrant a bit of a boost.

Well a little bit about dryer ducting first.  When we talk about duct length we are often referring to equivalency calculations because anytime we bend airflow, we need to take that extra resistance into account.  A straight 5 foot length of duct is 5 feet, but so is one 90 degree bend. To the dryer, they both look the same. So each time we bend air, use a poorly constructed transition hose, or one of those crappy (yup I said it) louvered vent covers, we need to take that extra resistance into account.

Now in this home, the distance calculated using actual match showed the ducting to be just under 35 feed of equivalency which is under the code requirements for the state I reside in.  But I guess each unit has been provided with a dryer booster fan in order to make things better. The bad part was like most people that reside in a home with one of these, they don’t know the booster fan requires periodic maintenance in order to continue to work quietly.

The upstairs neighbor had complained about the noise from this unit as it was right under their feet.  The solution was to correct the installation and clean the booster fan so it would not vibrate the floor/ceiling.  Sometimes reading and following the instructions is a good thing.
