I need to replace a dryer roof vent. Can I use the 634 vent with a dryer?
Thank you for your question on the model 634 roof cap. The normal application for this roof vent is as a termination for a bath fan. It may, however, be used to terminate the ducting for a clothes dryer if the bird screen is removed since lint build-up on the screen could pose a safety hazard. This conditional approval is given only if the clothes dryer manufactuerer's instructions permit roof ducting. Recognizing that clothes dryers are normally ducted through a wall with a short length of horizontal duct, we cannot be responsible for loss in dryer performance that may occur as a result of the duct run needed to utilize the 636 roof cap. Please contact Technical Support with further questions at 800-637-1453.
