Good dryer maintenance makes a big difference in energy savings and dryer fire prevention


Austin, TX – The Austin Dryer Vent Cleaning Wizard provides sound advice to homeowners about dryer related hazards including dryer fires and carbon monoxide with gas dryers. The frequency of residential fire increases during the fall and winter so the Wizard encourages homeowners to spot and correct fire hazards in their home. Poorly vented clothes dryers are the cause of over 17,000 dryer fires each year.

Clogged dryer vents will restrict airflow and cause overheating, eventually leading to a dryer fire. In addition to being a fire hazard, clogged vents can make a dryer become overworked as it strains to do its job. This can lead to mechanical breakdown and increased energy bills. Poorly vented dryers can cost an additional $300 per year to operate!

Bob Bryfogle, owner of Dryer Vent Wizard (, advises his customers that in addition to being an energy hog and a fire hazard, poorly vented gas dryers can be a carbon monoxide threat.
