All dryer vent systems are required to exhaust to the outside of your home. Occasionally we’ll discover that the dryer vent system does not comply with this rule. Unfortunately, it’s common to find the dryer vent exhausting into attic & crawl spaces, & in extreme cases hidden within the wall construction. This promotes additional hazards to your home, including mold, allergens & other indoor air quality issues. Ideally, the dryer vent system needs to be as short as possible. With laundry rooms being built in the middle of the home, the dryer vent system can sometimes exceed 30 feet in length, increasing the chance for excessive lint buildup & the need for maintenance more often.
If the decision to reroute your dryer vent system is desired, our technicians can discuss a plan of action with you to help determine the best route to take during your service visit.
