Dryer Vent Replacement in High Point Emerywood Neighborhood Restores Peace of Mind
At Vent Busters, we often encounter beautiful homes with great potential that are simply hampered by outdated and unsafe dryer vents. It was precisely such a case when we recently completed a dryer vent replacement in Emerywood, a neighborhood well-known for its charming architecture. Unfortunately, like many older homes, these often suffer from the risky business of improper dryer venting.
In this particular residence, a flexible vent in the attic had become an inviting refuge for bird infestation, leading to a foul-smelling laundry room and damaging the homeowners’ clothing. Unfortunately, this foil vent was not up to the task for a main dryer duct. But worry not—that’s where we step in.
With a keen focus on functionality and durability, we upgraded the system to a rigid metal. The result? A more efficient, safer dryer vent that will stand the test of time.
The upgrade wasn’t as simple as it might sound. Working in a compact space surrounded by other utilities, we had to meticulously architect an efficient, long-lasting, and high-quality dryer vent. By using long-radius elbows and introducing a gradual offset, we significantly reduced air restriction compared to the old flex system. To seal the deal—pun intended—we used top-notch IPG mastic to seal the joints, along with robust galvanized strapping to suspend and support the ductwork.
One vital aspect of our solution of upgrading to a metal wall vent was to eliminate the risk of a bird reinfestation. This type of vent, attached to the outside brick, has a unique design that is highly resistant to pest entry, making it an ideal and practical solution.
We topped off the installation with our tried and true Dryerflex transition—a consistently reliable choice. This transition hose is flame-resistant and maintains an airtight seal, ensuring superior airflow, and poses significantly less restriction compared to alternative options from a typical hardware store.
In summary, this comprehensive intervention transformed more than just the dryer vent—it heightened the homeowner’s peace of mind, knowing their home is now safer and more efficient.
