Do not replace your dryer machine. Install a dryer vent correctly

The dryer’s air vent allows moist air to escape to the outside. If the vent is clogged, the lint in the dryer can ignite. And we see it all the time in the news. However, a burnt-out dryer hose and an explosion of a dryer isn’t the worst-case scenario. Worse, if the dryer is installed incorrectly – the transition hose goes into the wall – the fire can start there. Then it will be difficult to extinguish it because there will be no access to the behind-the-wall area.

The fire can easily travel around the house/building or spread to neighboring buildings. In addition, improper installation can lead to the misplacement of important ventilation components, and damaged areas will quickly become a breeding ground for mold. Unfortunately, improper installation of dryer vent ducts is very common. Whether you need a new dryer vent hose or you want to replace an old or unsafe one, our services are tailored to your home’s individual needs.

By conducting a preliminary inspection and evaluation, we select and offer customized ventilation solutions that are ideal for your installation.

We Follow the Code for Installing a Dryer Vent System

We put your safety first. That is why we are primarily guided by the International Residential Code (IRC M1502) which regulates the connection type, and lengths for the dryer vent, and is a guide for the Installation or Replacement of the Vent.

For proper operation of the dryer and protection against fire, correct installation of the vent is necessary. If technicians follow the code during installation, there is no such case as a fire situation. This is what always guides our work:

"Transition ducts shall not be concealed within construction. Flexible transition ducts used to connect the dryer to the exhaust duct system shall be limited to single lengths not to exceed 8 feet (2438 mm), and shall be listed and labeled in accordance with UL 2158A."

Warning Fire Hazard

Pay Attention

This or a similar warning label is located on the back of all dryers. It should not be overlooked.

It clearly states that you should use heavy metal vents and DO NOT USE PLASTIC OR THIN FOIL DUCTS. The reason is that plastic or foil duct feeds the fire, vinyl melts and spreads the fire.

As reported by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) in 2022, dryers and washers cause an average of 15,970 fires each year, with dryers causing 92% of them and an average of $200 million in property damage.

    Leave The Dryer Vent Hose Installation To The Professionals

    Installing a dryer duct system may seem like a simple task#, but it must be done correctly to prevent any costly problems in the future. It often happens that homeowners try to solve the problem on their own. As a result, the situation can only get worse.

    As we understand how dryer systems work, we know how to make sure they work at their best. Based on the regulations of CODE M1502, we check the current condition of the vent and clean the dryer heating element, the transition hose, and the vent. During the inspection, we may find:

    • the dryer vent is clogged
    • the lint filter is filled with lint
    • the transition hose enters the wall, and usually it’s a vent line that should be installed and accessible
    • the vent is connected to the dryer via a transition hose,  that doesn’t fit the requirement and creates a fire hazard situation.

        Connection Hose Fix or Replacement

        The dryer vent hose (flex transition hose) moves the hot exhaust air from the dryer through the hose and expels it to the outside of your house or apartment. Over time, the dryer vent hose may fall out or become loose. When the hose is disconnected, the lint is carried all over the floor and it becomes hot in the laundry. Without a ventilation hose attached to the dryer, lint builds up, reducing efficiency and safety.
