    Default attic dryer vent

    photo of a homeowner installation of a dryer vent with an attic termination.

    the effort that some people will give in doing the job wrong is amazing at times...

    All that fluffy lint just adds to the insulation in the attic, doesn't it?

    Here's my favorite attic dryer termination.
    That's screening across the top of the trash can.

    The proper way is tp connect the dryer vent into a plumbing vent that is terminating above the roof.

    At least it was a 'hard pipe' connected to the damper!

    And here I though the venting in today's attic was out-of-line - thanks for the perspective!

    Sorry, Billy, but I think the sweater would be grayish... [(;>)

    I have to say, THAT is quite a proud collection of attic dryer vents! One thing I didn't get - why would anyone mix two appliances like dryers and toilet paper? He could have used those little dryer anti-wrinkle sheets instead - stylish, complementary, very chic.. Well, coulda, shoulda, woulda...

    What do you guys do, keep different files of whacky stuff so when someone posts something interesting or different, BOOM, you have a come back!? This is one cool group of posters and I enjoyed the pics immensely!

    The picture is from last Friday's inspection, agent on hand thought I was joking! No it is not nearly as entertaining as the other posts, the one with the plumbing stack is the winner in my book.

    These days, any time you can pump up the R value it's worth the shot...

    I don't save my photos - maybe I should. Must have something to do with my computer obtusity. Yeah, invented word.

    I've seen my share of weird stuff, but the way you guys come on with relevant pics right out of the box is too cool!

    And Billy, you got me there! Can you get a decent Redskin color mix? Gracias...
