Chicago Homeowners Trust the Wizard for Professional Dryer Vent Installation

Proper dryer vent installation prevents dryer fires and promotes dryer efficiency to reduce energy bills 


Professional dryer vent installation by the Chicago Wizard helps the clothes dryer operate safety and efficiency. Poorly installed dryer vents can lead to a fire hazard and increased energy bills.

According to Mory Matias, owner of Dryer Vent Wizard, Chicago residents have noticed a significant reduction in their energy bills after he repairs or replaces their faulty dryer vent system. “Clothes dryers are among the highest energy users in American homes,” said Matias. “Poorly vented clothes dryers can cost an additional $300 per year to operate.”

Dryer Vent Wizard specializes in all dryer vent services while educating consumers on preventing dryer fires and increasing dryer efficiency. Mory expresses his concern with homeowners who are using the vinyl or flexible foil dryer vent systems. “These systems do not meet current building and safety standards,” Mory explained. “The vinyl deteriorates over time and becomes cracked and brittle, allowing lint and moisture to vent into your home. If your dryer throws a spark, the lint will quickly ignite and the vinyl duct will add fuel to allow a rapidly spreading fire.” Schedule an inspection by the Wizard – Visit

Clothes dryers can throw sparks, but a metal dryer duct is likely to contain the spark until it burns itself out, if it is well maintained. A clogged dryer duct can restrict air flow, prevent heat from escaping, and cause the system to overheat and lead to a dryer fire.

Though the concept of dryer venting is quite simple, there are several critical mistakes homeowners make that can be hazardous. Mory Matias recommends professional dryer vent installation followed by regular dryer vent cleaning to reduce the risk of dryer fires and increase dryer efficiency.
