Plastic Dryer Vents...

Here is something to think about. Plastic Dryer Vents may be the less expensive way to go up front, but in the end, this is what can happen.

Plastic Dryer Vents...
     Plastic dryer venting has been banned from residential usage for several years now. Plastic dryer ventingHowever; I still run into this material when doing inspections of older properties. This material is a fire safety hazard and needs to be replaced if you have this present in your home. Optimally, a rigid duct is preferred, but if that is not feasible, a heavy gauge, flexible metal duct would be my second choice. The thin wall flexible metal tubing sold by the big box stores, would be my last choice.
     Although accepted by most municipalities, I have seen where this material has burned through.
     It is recommended that you have your dryer ducts cleaned every 3 years. If you cannot remember when you did it last, it is time. Dryer vent fires rank 2nd to electrical fires. Be safe! The lives and property you save might be your own..
