Dryer vents can become a fire hazard especially of they become full of lint build up coming from loads and loads of laundry through the years. Not being able to determine this build up can be quite risky. A handy device like the Dryer Vent Alarm can help provide a solution against too much lint build up.

The Dryer Vent Alarm can help make people aware of lint build up in dryer vents before they become fire hazards. While most people simple clean the vent trap of any lint to clear the airway, the build up can occur at other areas of the vent which can be overlooked. The Dryer Vent Alarm makes people aware of this by monitoring the air pressure inside the dryer vents. Increased air pressure can indicate a blocked vent.

The Dryer Vent Alarm monitors the dryer’s efficiency and then calculates the amount of lint build up over time. When the lint build up reaches critical levels due to the changes in air pressure a 90 dB alarm will sound to alert people. The Dryer Vent Alarm is available at Hammacher Schlemmer for US$60.
