Here’s a quick overview of the most common types of dryer venting:

Foil Flex Duct: Aluminum foil duct is a popular choice for dryer vents because it is lightweight and easy to work with. However, it is not as durable as other options and can tear easily if not installed correctly. It is also not recommended for use in high-humidity areas, as it can promote the growth of mold and mildew.

 

Semi Rigid Duct

 

Aluminum Semi-Rigid Duct: Aluminum Semi-rigid duct is more durable than aluminum foil duct and can be used in high-humidity areas without worry. It is also easier to install than rigid metal duct, but not as easy as aluminum foil duct.

Slim or Periscope: Slim fit duct, also known as periscope dryer vent, is a good choice for tight spaces where traditional dryer venting might not fit. However, it is not as easy to work with as other options and can become clogged more easily. See Lambro’s TiteFit 90 Degree – Rectangular Aluminum Dryer Duct

Rigid Metal Duct: Rigid metal duct is the most durable option, but it is also the most difficult to install. It is a good choice for long install runs and is less likely to become clogged.

Vinyl Duct: Vinyl duct is NOT recommended to vent a dryer.

Dryer venting serves an important purpose: they remove hot, moist air from your home that can cause mold and mildew to grow. Dryer vents also help improve the efficiency of your dryer by allowing it to work at its full potential.

 

Dryer ducts come in three main types: rigid, semi-rigid and flexible.

The most common types of dryer venting are:
Aluminum Foil Flex Duct
Aluminum Semi-Rigid Duct
Slim Duct or Periscope
Rigid Metal Duct

No matter which type of dryer vent solution you choose, be sure to follow the installation instructions carefully to ensure proper ventilation and issues down the road.

Dryer vents also play an important role in keeping your home safe from fire hazards. In order to ensure that your dryer vent is properly installed and up to code, there are a few guidelines you should follow.

First, check your local dryer vent codes. These will vary depending on where you live, but there are some general standards that most jurisdictions follow. Make sure that your dryer vent meets or exceeds these requirements.

Next, take a look at the path of your dryer vent. It should be as straight and short as possible; any bends or turns will decrease the efficiency of your dryer and could create a fire hazard. The exhaust duct should also be made of metal, not plastic or other flammable materials.
Make sure that the vent is properly connected to your dryer and the outside of your home. There should be no gaps or holes where exhaust could escape. This is not only a fire hazard, but it can also allow lint to build up in your dryer, making it less efficient and more likely to overheat.

 

Vents Clothers Dryer

 

Finally, you’ll need to install a vent cover on the outside of your home. This will help keep debris and animals from entering the ductwork and clogging it. Be sure to choose a cover that fits snugly and is weatherproof.

There are a few key codes that must be followed when installing or repairing dryer vents. These codes are in place to keep homes safe from fire hazards. A professional can help you make sure that your dryer vent is up to code and working properly.

The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) code 2158 states that clothes dryers must be vented to the outside of the building.
The International Residential Code (IRC) M1401.4 requires that clothes dryers be exhausted to the outdoors through an approved duct. The duct material shall be rigid metal, semi-rigid metal duct, rigid nonmetallic duct or other type listed in the dryer manufacturer’s installation instructions.

The duct shall be installed in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions and shall not be concealed within construction.
The Dryer Manufacturer’s Association (DMA) recommends that clothes dryers be exhausted to the outdoors through a rigid or semi-rigid metal vent pipe of not less than 0.016-inch (0.4mm) thick material with smooth interior surfaces.

If you have any questions about the installation or maintenance of your dryer vent, consult a professional contractor.

 

How do you properly maintain the dryer vent?

If you have a clothes dryer in your home, it is important to understand how to properly maintain the dryer vent. Clean your dryer vent at least once a year, and more often if you notice that it is starting to become clogged. Dryer vents can become clogged with lint over time, which can lead to fires. In order to avoid this potential hazard, it is important to clean your dryer vent on a regular basis. Additionally, it is also important to make sure that the dryer ducts are not obstructed in any way.

 

Lint Eater Vents

 

Here are some tips on how to keep your dryer vents and ducts clean and clear:

  • Remove lint from the lint trap after every load of laundry. This will help reduce the amount of lint that builds up in the vent over time.
  • Vacuum around the dryer vent opening on a monthly basis. This will help remove any lint that has accumulated around the opening.
  • Detach the dryer vent from the dryer and clean it with a vacuum cleaner attachment or a brush. Be sure to reach as far into the vent as possible to remove all of the lint.
  • Inspect the dryer ducts for any blockages. If you find a blockage, use a vacuum cleaner attachment or a brush to remove it.
  • If you have any questions about maintaining your dryer vent or ducts, please contact a professional for assistance.

Lambro offers a LintEater 10 piece dryer vent cleaning system that works great for longer dryer vents.
