Climate Quick Tip: Clean Your Lint Filter

Plugged dryer filters can decrease dryer efficiency up to 75% and increase drying times, which shortens the life of your dryer and ups the risk of fire. Lint builds up quickly, so remove it after each use.

Dryer lint removal decreases the chance of dryer damage as well as fire risk — and it saves money and boosts efficiency.
