Gas clothes dryers with faulty or poorly maintained dryer vents can cause dangerous levels of carbon monoxide to leak into homes
Monterey CA – The Monterey Dryer Vent Cleaning Wizard says all clothes dryers must be vented to the outdoors to meet current safety standards. Poorly vented dryers pose several home hazards. Gas dryers, like any fuel-burning appliance, must be properly vented to eliminate a carbon monoxide threat.
Carbon monoxide is an odorless, colorless gas that interferes with how the body processes oxygen; it can be dangerous and deadly. Symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning include headache, nausea and disorientation. The dangerous gases are produced inside homes where carbon-containing fuels are incompletely burned.
Jon Perry, owner of Dryer Vent Wizard (http://www.dryerventwizard.com) warns his customers that poorly vented gas appliances, including clothes dryers, can allow carbon monoxide into the home. Due to increased consumer awareness, homes are being upgraded for energy efficiency; therefore, the gas by-products, like carbon monoxide, have less chance of escaping the home. Proper dryer vent installation and maintenance is critical to prevent carbon monoxide poisoning.
It is important to be sure all combustion equipment and appliances in a home are properly installed and have adequate ventilation. Dryer Vent Wizard is a qualified dryer vent service technician who can perform an inspection and upgrades if necessary to ensure the clothes dryer is operating safely and efficiently.
