Safe & Efficient Roof Venting
DryerJacks are engineered specifically for the demanding requirements of roof venting a dryer which include:
- Airflow Efficient
- Pest & Weather Proof
- Code Compliant
Why Is a Roof Vent Important?
Shorter duct runs, created by venting the dryer straight through the roof, can improve drying efficiency and lessen lint buildup. Until now, however, there were no roof terminations that met all of the stringent dryer venting requirements. The new DryerJack® is engineered specifically for dryers. They meet or exceed all code requirements and deliver superior airflow efficiency.
Built to the same quality standards as the Dryerbox®, DryerJack performance stands the test of time.
Are your clothes are taking longer and longer to dry? One of the first signs that your dryer vent has excessive buildup or even a clog, is excessive drying times. A load of bath towels should take no longer than 30 to 40 minutes to dry. If you are finding that an additional dry cycle is needed to completely dry the clothes your dryer vent probably needs cleaning.
A blocked dryer vent traps the air keeping your clothes moist and hot. If your clothes still feel damp when you take them out of the dryer cycle is finished it is probably time to get your vent cleaned.
Roof Vent Advantages
Superior airflow efficiency is achieved thanks to the combination of a unique curved damper, larger vent opening, and collar placement.
Allowing the dryer to perform at peak efficiency helps reduce lint buildup (and the resulting fire hazard), and it keeps dryer times low which reduces wear and tear and saves energy.
Dryer exhaust systems need to be cleaned—from beginning to end—regularly. DryerJacks include special design features for ready access that is easy on cleaning tools. The ability to clean vents from both ends can be a major advantage for longer runs, and it is helpful for a thorough cleaning.
Bird, rodent and rain protection:
Your natural intuition might insist that a screen exists to shield bird and rodent entry, but the building code clearly prohibits their use in dryer venting as they quickly get contaminated with lint. Special attention to the shape, position and how the damper rests inside the hood when closed, delivers a high degree of intrusion prevention without the use of screens. A water tight collar extends up through and above the nailing flange to prevent water intrusion in the exhaust duct.
Tough as nails construction, built right here in the US, ensures a very long duty life. The tightly engineered housing, flange, damper and collar are all constructed of 26 gauge Galvalume®.
DryerJack hood features balance aesthetic objectives with application requirements. Rounded flange corners simplify handling, and built-in nail holes help speed installation.
