Periodic dryer cleaning can not only help prevent unexpected dryer failures, but the cleaning process can reduce the risk of an unexpected dryer fire as well.   Let me take a look at your dryer along with the venting to make sure it is working properly and that your home is safe. A multipoint inspection doesn’t take very long but I often am able to address issues that may save you money in the long run.  I can inspect and clean dryers from all common manufacturers and even offer advice or trusted referrals should your dryer require more complex servicing.  Call today to schedule your dryer safety inspection.

The Dryerbox®

Give Your Dryer More Space with Dryer Box®

As Dryers become Larger, DryerBox helps free up Space.

DryerBox® helps improve the performance of your dryer and gives you a little more room by allowing the transition hose to sit within the wall.

Constructed of durable steel, with a moulded corner bead and paintable, the DryerBox sits within the wall studs to provide your dryer with just enough extra space to prevent crushing of the transition hose.

Most installations improve airflow by limiting ducting bends while ensuring a more natural connection between the back of the dryer and the home ducting.

Help your Dryer Breath Better

Air doesn’t like to bend, but with the Dryer-Ell product, I can make the airflow better.

The Dryer-Ell® is a long turn elbow that al- lows for better airflow for your dryer and in- creased efficiency. Most dryer duct elbows bend air in a tight radius, but the DryerEll bends air on a 10 foot radius allowing for a slower transition while maintaining a true 4 inch duct diameter.

And if duct length is a problem in your home, the Dryer-Ell has no run length penalty thus reducing the overall duct equivalency by 5 feet for every standard elbow replaced.

For longer duct runs in todays larger homes, reducing the number of elbows can greatly improve the dryers level of performance.

Perfect for new new dryer vent installations, or can be easily retrofit in vents run through attics and crawlspaces.

Improve the overall performance of your dryer by letting it breath better. Save time, save energy, save wear and tear, and save some money. Insist on high efficiency dryer vent products.

As a veteran of the field service industry since 1991, I created Dryer Tech to help teach people the importance of keeping their dryer running its best and to help keep your home safe. I attend annual manufacturer training classes both locally and during national service conventions to help maintain my technical proficiency, and participate in technical discussions with other independent service providers to gain and share knowledge.

I am a graduate of David Douglas High School in Portland, hold a degree in electronic engineering technology from ITT Technical Institute, spent 10 years in the US Navy with the Cargo Handling Force (CHB5), I am a Master Certified Appliance Professional, a Certified Dryer Exhaust Technician, and a licensed contractor. When not working with dryer vents, I enjoy spending my time reading and listening to podcasts.  Born and raised in Portland, I can not think of a better place to live and work, but when given the opportunity, I enjoy the occasional road trip, or a visit to two of my favorite places, Disneyland and Las Vegas.
