New dryer vent installation is better left to the qualified professional to ensure safety
dryer vent installation and maintenance while educating his customers. Clogged dryer vents are a major fire hazard with lint accumulation being a leading cause of over 17,000 dryer fires that are reported each year.
The Wizard recommends people have their dryer vent system inspected to be sure it meets current safety codes. He is especially concerned with the number of homeowners who install their own dryer vent system made of vinyl or plastic. He explains to his customers how the flexible foil or vinyl material is no longer acceptable for dryer ducts. The flexible foil venting often becomes crushed, allowing lint build-up and block airflow. Flexible foil venting also has ridges which cause friction inside the dryer vent tube to restrict airflow.
There are several fatal mistakes homeowners commonly make when they install dryer vent systems. Some people install a screen at the end of the dryer vent outside to keep bugs and critters out. This also allows dust and lint to accumulate and obstruct air flow.
