A dryer booster fan helps your dryer dry your clothes more efficiently - by up to 50%. A booster fan is typically used in long dryer ducts. Any dryer duct longer than 25 feet can increase your drying times and energy use, and increase your gas or electric bill. A long dryer duct run also increases the lint build-up and the potential for a duct fire. The 50 watt motor is not exposed to heat, lint or moisture. It includes a 115 VAC cord for automatic operation.
The LB2 is an advanced dryer booster fan, it has increased safety by alerting you to different dryer conditions, such as excessive dryer duct temperatures. Another fantastic safety feature is that it will alert you if there is a blocked vent or fan malfunction.
