Question: I just purchased a new clothes dryer and I want the dryer to sit flush against the back wall of the laundry room, but it can’t because the dryer vent pipe is in the way. Is there anything I can do to get around this problem?
The proper installation of the dryer duct system is critical to the proper and efficient operation of the dryer. An improper installation of the dryer duct system can lead to higher energy bills, dryer damage and in the worst case a fire.
Answer: First and most important, you must follow the manufacturer’s instructions and rules for the dryer ducting.
There are duct adaptors that will allow you to push the dryer closer to the back wall. However, before you can do this, there are other considerations, including the length of the pipe.
