DRYER VENT TERMINATIONS WITH SCREENS?
October 15, 2013
Dryer vent terminations with screens I find too often during home inspections. Smashed covers are also not to be on the dryer vent termination. They pose a fire hazard. The vent termination should have a damper flap that opens/ closes fully to keep birds and rodents out of the home. Dryers that vent through the wall are the preferred method, but many newer homes vent through the roof. You should check your drying times frequently to indicate a possible blockage in the vent pipe.
