The Proper Dryer Vent Installation Guide
Having your dryer is a good way to keep the appliance operating successfully and keeps
away from the risk of fire or water damage to your home. Luckily, installing a dryer vent is

Steps of installation
There are five steps of its installation:

3: Fixed the vent cap on the home exterior

5: Test your installation.

The shortest possible route is the straight path, but not consistently applied. If your dryer
is present in the basement, the pipe needs to make at least one turn. To complex matters,
the total length of the pipe should not increase than 25 feet—and that is for a straight
