How It Works
The Lint Alert doesn't just start signaling the alarm when something is wrong. It monitors the system all the time, and keeps you informed about the air flow at all levels.
First, an Air Pressure Sensor is installed into the vent that leads from your dryer to the outside. This takes very small samples of the air pressure and gauges it to see how well the air is flowing.
Next, the Lint Alert will light up Green, Yellow or Red, to indicate how clear or congested the vent is.
- Green - There are 3 green lights, and when these are lit, everything is fine. You dryer is still safe and there is air flow. By the time the 3rd one lights up though, it may be time to have the vent cleaned out.
- Yellow - Yellow means you are pushing the limit and need to have your vent cleaned out before it becomes a real hazard.
- Red - When the light turns red, an alarm will also go off, letting you know that the air flow has been blocked, and it has now become a serious fire hazard.
