Dryer vent installation: Have you looked at the dryer vent attached to your clothes dryer? Is it aluminum, or plastic or vinyl? This is important to know. Recent UL safety codes require solid metal or semi-rigid material be used for the dryer duct system. To understand why this is, consider the function of the dryer vent system:

Heat Removal

The hot air and moisture removed from your laundry is removed from the dryer drum and carried through the dryer vent system to a vent hood located outdoors. State law requires all gas dryers be vented outside.

Lint Removal

Another function of the dryer vent system is to remove the lint that is produced by your laundry as it dries. Most of the lint is caught in the lint screen; however, some does end up in the dryer vents too. If it doesn’t make its way to the vent hood outdoors, it can build up in the vent system to cause problems over time.

Lint Build-up Prevents Heat Removal

What kind of dryer vent do you have? Many older homes were created using vinyl instead of metal. While this used to be the standard material for dryer vents, years of experience have shown this to be dangerous. If your dryer were to throw a spark, it is very possible that the lint in the vinyl duct could ignite and cause a very rapidly spreading fire.
