For many years the choice of material for clothes dryer venting was flexible plastic or vinyl, which is also commonly used for bathroom exhaust fans. This type of material is a problem because heat causes it to become brittle and deteriorate. Imagine the problems this can cause if you have a very long dryer duct running across the attic, basement ceiling, or inside walls. As flammable lint builds up and reduces air flow, the vent tube will overheat and eventually cause a serious fire.
Most building codes prohibit the use of plastic dryer duct material (0 comments)
