The most overlooked aspect of your dryer in the dryer exhaust vent system. Out of sight out of mind! The exhaust vent system begins with the transition duct that runs from your dryer to the wall. This system then continues through the walls or attic where it makes its final exit to the exterior of the building. Every system should have an outside hood to keep animals out and be equipped with a functioning back draft damper.
