If your dryer vents are improperly installed, there’s a higher risk your home will fall prey to a dryer fire. That’s only one reason your vents should be professionally installed, though. Having dryer vents installed by a professional (and repaired by one when needed) also helps prevent mold, excessive dry times, overheating, and carbon monoxide poisoning. Plus, it improves the lifespan of your dryer. So, when you need a brand-new vent system put in or an old one replaced, Dryer Vent Wizard is the quality and professional installation you need!
But what does a properly installed dryer vent system look like? For one, the hose between your wall outlet and dryer should be made of aluminum, 4 inches in diameter, and absolutely must vent to your home’s exterior (and not the attic, garage, etc.). It’s also vital to ensure there are no kinks to be found in the hose as a damaged hose can cause issues. And only metallic tape (NEVER masking or duct tape) should be used for securing joints.
All too often, we see problems that have occurred due to unsuitable ventilation materials or an improperly installed vent system, which is why we always install with code-compliant configurations and materials. What does that mean? It means when we put in a dryer vent system, it’s put in with the goal of improving efficiency and safety. It also means all the materials we use are in compliance with one or more of the following:
• Consumer Product Safety Comission
• Current International Residential Code (IRC)
• Your Dryer Manufacturer
• International Mechanical Code (IMC)
• The National Fire Protection Association
• Underwriters Laboratory
