Fairfax, VA Dryer Vent Booster Fan Installation

If your dryer vent line is 35 ft or longer with no bends, booster fan installation is recommended to improve efficiency. A dryer vent line that is shorter than 35 ft with bends may also require a booster fan depending on the length and number of bends. The mechanism in the dryer itself can only push the heat, moisture, and stray lint so far. If your dryer vent line is too long for the dryer to properly vent air and particles outdoors, then you may have an increased risk of fire, mold and mildew growth, or excessive lint buildup on clothing or around your dryer. When moisture fails to traverse the entire vent line, it may seep back into the laundry area or settle in the vent itself, promoting fungal growth. If lint is not making it all the way through the dryer vent line, a buildup of lint will amass and result in problematic clogging.

If your dryer vent line is 35 ft or longer with no bends, sometimes appliance manufacturers will recommend a booster fan to improve efficiency. Local building inspectors in our area do not recommend booster fans. Booster fans also require costly annual maintenance, disassembly and cleaning.

Dryer Vent Wizard of Northern Virginia recommends more frequent cleanings in lieu of a booster fan to ensure your dryer is able to work efficiently and effectively. We may also recommend a different routing that may provide for a shorter vent. We believe this is a better option than installing a booster fan and would be happy to inspect your dryer vent system and recommend solutions.
