Dryer Vent Safety Information
Clothes dryers cause more house fires than chimneys do!
The venting method on your dryer can make a big difference in safety and performance as well. Flexible aluminum pipe and plastic pipe ARE NOT CODE COMPLIANT and should be replaced, as these materials deteriorate quickly and are more easily crushed during installation, which reduces the venting capacity. Never allow a dryer vent exhaust to terminate under the house or inside the attic space.
