When my wife was doing laundry, she told me it was becoming overheated there.
I thought that was strange because it never became hot there before when she was doing laundry.
She said that maybe we could get a portable A/C unit to use in there so she wasn’t roasting to death while trying to do the laundry. I told her that was probably not necessary and it would only increase the cost of the energy bills. She said we had to do something and that’s when I let her know I would look at it. She wanted me to look at it right away too because she was in the process of doing laundry and it was way too uncomfortable inside of there. She even said she felt like the air quality was bad. So I checked it out and she was right, the air quality had suffered and I was thinking there had to be an issue with the ventilation. I checked behind the dryer and immediately discovered that the duct was disconnected from the back. I reconnected it and secured it tightly and the problem was solved! I told my wife, “See we don’t need a portable A/C unit in here, but it might not hurt to have a portable air purifier.” She thought the air purifier sounded like a good idea so I picked her up one from the hardware store. It’s a pretty nifty little air cleaner and it has made the air quality so much better in the laundry room. Also there is no more issue with it being overheated in there which I’m glad to know.
