How do you install a dryer transition duct?
In this way, can I use flexible duct for dryer?
Dryer venting tips and practices Flexible transition hose between the dryer and the wall outlet should be either the foil type or the aluminum flexible duct (most preferred). Do not use the plastic or vinyl. Concealed ducting must be rigid metal (galvanized or aluminum) duct.
Furthermore, are aluminum foil dryer vents safe? Don't use plastic for your dryer duct. It's flammable. Foil comes in a UL Listed flavor and is easy to work with, but it's prohibited by many building code officials and clothes dryer manufacturers. Semi-rigid aluminum is good, but it's a hassle to work with.
Also to know is, how much does it cost to install a dryer vent?
