Often, not much thought goes into selecting the type of vent cover to be connected to the dryer exhaust duct at the home’s exterior wall. There are several types of vents on the market today to choose from, with the DryerWallVent being the safest, most efficient choice.
Plastic: Vent covers made of plastic crack and crumble over time, rendering them useless. These vents usually have horizontal slats where lint becomes trapped between the slats and builds up over time, creating a blockage.
Lightweight Metal: This type of vent usually protrudes a good distance from the wall, making it prone to damage. It includes a screen and its purpose is to keep the pests outside. However, screens not only trap lint and create a blockage, but they also don’t comply with the Building Code for safe venting of a dryer.
Heavy Gauge Metal: The new DryerWallVent is well-built, stylish, efficient and is proudly made in the USA. The large damper opening provides superior airflow efficiency to improve the dryer’s performance. Integrated magnets keep the damper closed when the dryer is not in use, keeping pests and elements outside. The low-profile frame, recessed damper and hidden fasteners all complement the home’s exterior. The DryerWallVent’s housing is constructed of heavy-gauge Galvalume steel with a lightweight Galvalume steel damper. Available in four standard colors: white, tan, brown and black with a powder coated, corrosion-resistant finish that will stand the test of time. This might be the only vent you’ll ever need!
Installation is easy as the slightly reduced collar fits well with any 4” duct work. Adding this vent cover to new construction is a breeze with four built-in holes for fasteners that are completely hidden by the damper. For existing construction where the duct opening in the wall is irregular, the DryerWallVent No Collar is a good option.
