Dryer Lint Box

Dryer Lint Boxes

A dryer lint box, also known as a secondary lint trap, is a small device or container located near the dryer’s exhaust vent that captures the lint and debris that accumulates during the drying process. The purpose of the lint box is to prevent the lint from clogging the dryer vent or escaping into the air, which can be a fire hazard and decrease the efficiency of the dryer.

The benefits of a dryer lint box include:

    Improved safety: When lint accumulates in the dryer vent, it can create a fire hazard. A lint box captures the lint before it can enter the vent, reducing the risk of a fire.

    Better air quality: Lint and debris that escape from the dryer can circulate in the air and be harmful to breathe. A lint box captures the lint and prevents it from entering the air.

    Energy savings: A clogged dryer vent can reduce the efficiency of the dryer, increasing the amount of energy needed to dry clothes. A lint box can help prevent clogs, improving the dryer’s efficiency and reducing energy usage.

    Longer lifespan for the dryer: When a dryer is forced to work harder due to a clogged vent, it can cause wear and tear on the machine. Using a lint box can help prevent clogs and reduce the strain on the dryer, potentially extending its lifespan.

Types of Dryer Lint Boxs

We prefer to install the new Ecco dryer lint box due to their ease of use and space saving design.  If the Ecco lint box won’t work in a particular situation we can also install traditional designed lint boxes.
