The Importance of Airflow

Maintaining the proper ventilation and airflow is necessary to ensure the optimal functioning of your dryer.

The dryer functions by pulling in air from the room. This air is then heated by an electrical or gas 

heater before it is blown out through the clothes in the dryer to aid the condensation process. 

Without an adequate air supply, the dryer will not be able to pull in air for the drying process, 

and improper ventilation prevents it from expelling any waste water vapor and hot air.

Poor airflow will affect the drying efficiency of the appliance. As a result the dryer takes an 

unusually long time to dry out your clothes. This increases the duration for which the heater 

remains active, and will increase your energy usage and costs.

Problems related to lack of airflow can be easily solved and will improve the 

performance/energy ¬≠efficiency of your appliance. You can inspect the dryer filters to ensure that 

they are not clogged and blocking the flow of air. These filters can be easily cleaned or replaced, if required.

Always make sure that the dryer is installed at a location where there is adequate ventilation. 

Do not place it in a confined space and ensure that all vents are clear and free from obstructions.

Following these steps can help you avoid most tumble dryer problems
