How long do my dryer vent ducts need to be?

We often hear the question about dryer vent lengths and how long or short should they be. Here at Dryer Vent Wizard we are the professional leaders in the dryer vent industry.

The first thing to remember when it comes to dryer vent ducts the length should always reflect the dryer manufacturers recommendations. Only if you have no recommendations from the dryer manufacturer then you can use 35 feet as the maximum length a dryer vent line should be. When measuring your dryer vent line always add 5 feet for every 90 degree bend and 2.5 feet for every 45 degree bend in your dryer vent run.

Anything above 35 feet a dryer vent booster fan is required. Dryer vent booster fans come in all kinds of models and manufacturers. Sometimes a booster fan cannot be installed.

We highly recommended rerouting your dryer vent ducts if they are long. Here at Dryer Vent Wizard of East York and The Beaches in Toronto always use code compliant dryer vent material when installing or rerouting a dryer vent system. When we reroute a dryer vent system we always try to make the dryer vent ducts as short as possible. The shorter the dryer vent duct the less chance you will have of lint building up in your dryer vents. Lint is the most cause of all dryer fires.
