Dryer vent plays an important role in a household so it is best that a home should have at least a dryer vent especially when It comes to drying your clothes. Installation of dryer vents can be easy as long as you know the tips on how to do it.
First of all, you need to know whether your duct is functioning or not. It doesn’t matter if you have existing vent or you want to upgrade or replace it. Always make sure that the duct is perfectly running. Put in mind also that the shorter is the duct and the lesser are the turns or curves, the better it is.
You can measure the shortest route for the vent. You will need a measuring tool in order to be more accurate on your distance. For outdoor installation, drilling a pilot hole after can also help you in testing whether there is a smooth flow on the path you have chosen for the duct.
When you decide to have it indoor, you will cut the vent on the desired length to connect it with the dryer and also with the duct.
