Dryer vent

Laundry room wall is under our stairs that leads to the second floor of our home and the dryer vent runs under the stairs to the outside- Should we be concerned that cold air is going to come in through the vent and cause pipes to freeze

Dryer vent

There should be a flapper damper on the termination hood already. I would use a "Type A" for much more clear door opening: http://www.appliance411.com/faq/dryer-vent-length.shtml
Insulate it and use smooth wall ducting, tape on joints, no screws: http://www.hcpdc.com/pdf/Dryer%20Ven...quirements.pdf


If any ads are present in my answer above, I do not condone/support/use the product or services listed, they are there against my permission.
