Warren, MI (PressExposure) December 23, 2009 -- Dryer vent installation should be done by a professional to be sure that it meets current safety standards. A poorly installed dryer vent system can be a fire hazard, according to Glen Mayfield, owner of Dryer Vent Wizard in Indianapolis.
Dryer vent wizard is a nationwide company who specializes is all dryer exhaust issues, including dryer vent cleaning, repair, and proper installation to meet current safety codes. âToo many homeowners are still installing dryer vent systems made of flexible foil or vinyl,â said Mayfield. âThis type no longer meets current safety codes. Dryer Vent Wizard only installs dryer vent systems made of rigid metal.â
Glen Mayfield and other Dryer Vent Wizard technicians recommend professional dryer vent installation to ensure its safety and efficiency; however, they provide the following tips to homeowners who wish to do it themselves:
Use only rigid metal; flexible foil is easily crushed; vinyl or plastic deteriorates and cracks. It also provides additional fuel if the dryer throws a spark.
Do not use sheet metal screws in the dryer duct; they protrude to the inside and catch lint. The inside should be as smooth as possible; join pieces of duct work with metal tape, not duct tape; duct tape is combustible.
Short and straight are the rule for the dryer duct route to the dryer vent outside. The less distance air has to flow, the faster it flows. Sharp turns and greater distance cause the dryer to labor harder to expel the hot air.
