Conventional dryer vents often act as an "escape hatch", allowing outside air to enter your home through the exposed opening. This can increase heating bills in the winter and cooling bills in the summer. The Energy Saving Dryer Vent Closure System eliminates this problem, as well as the possibility of insects and other small creatures entering the home. The unique "shuttle cup" closure is designed to remain securely closed when the dryer is not in use. Most conventional dryer vents will remain open because of freezing weather or an accumulation of debris. Also, the Dryer Vent Closure System can be painted to blend with the exterior aesthetics of your home. It can also be installed in bathroom vents and range hoods for your kitchen, saving energy and cost throughout your home.
When the bathroom is vented on the side of the house, follow the appropriate instructions given for your type of siding or building material. When venting through the roof, the elbow is not used. The vent canister fits over the top of the existing 4" (outside diameter) pipe. For proper venting, the canister must rest at least 6" above the roofline. If the existing pipe is too small, use a 4" (outside diameter) pipe reducer to adapt the existing pipe to the proper size. Use plastic cement to adhere the canister to plastic pipe. If the existing is not plastic, a "friction fit" will keep the canister in place.
The vent is easily adaptable to any fan vent that has a duct smaller than 6".
