Dryer vents are suitable for houses and flats without basements which have a laundry area on the floor. They can even be installed in hallway closets that hide dryer and the washer. A dryer port runs in a straight line from the back of the dryer. Vents which are installed correctly will safely send heated air.
Find a place for the dryer vent hood opening. To get a dryer vent that is flat, assess the distance from the ground to the bottom of the port opening located on the back of the dryer. Go outside your house and determine the flooring is from ground level. Assess the dryer vent opening distance from the ground level. Make a small mark.
Drill a hole on the mark. Proceed inside and see where the hole is in relation to the dryer setup place. Cut an opening through the wall using a pit saw, if it is in the correct place.
Insert the end of the dryer vent in the hole. The length of from the dryer to the wall opening, dryer vent pipe that is flat, is maximum of 25 feet and a length of 12 inches. Move the dryer to adapt for clearance distance.
Insert the port hood from the house exterior into the pit and the dryer vent. Drill pilot holes for the mounting screws of the port hood and then drive the screws.
Where it meets the wall, run a bead of silicone caulk around the outside of the vent hood. Make sure you fill in any gap between the siding of the house and the port hood edge to prevent air leakage, which induces air pollutants in winter and hot air pollutants.
Connect the end of the dryer vent to the dryer vent outlet. Wrap metal foil duct tape around all the port links.
