Ask the Clean Air Expert – Bret Zelisko


Many things contribute to a properly operating clothes dryer, and proper venting is the most significant.

The most important functions of a dryer are the elimination of moisture recovered during the heating of damp clothing. This moisture is held in the warm air produced by the dryer as humidity, and is normally expelled to the outdoors through the dryers vent. If this air cannot be adequately removed, poor drying will result. This moisture can also condense into pools of water in the dryer vent, eventually leaking out. Any moisture accumulation inside the dryer ducting is a sign of poor venting which should be looked into.
