purchasing your next dryer don't forget to think about the maximum vent
length your dryer can handle. It is a critical factor when planning
your dryer's venting system. Vent runs longer than specified in the
installation instructions not only increase the risk of fire hazards,
they also decrease performance and the life of your dryer. Your
installation manual will have detailed instructions to help you plan
your vent system but here are few considerations to think about.
Total vent length is affected by several factors including:
- Number of 90 deg turns
- Type of venting (rigid or semi-rigid)
- Use of clamps to seal joints
- Type of outside vent cap
shopping for a dryer at CamdenAppliance.com you can check the
maximum vent length by downloading the installation manual and
