QUESTIONS & ANSWERSAsk a Question
We'd like to install this unit on the back of the gas dryer. The ducting system is 4in diameter and runs approx 40ft with two 90 degree and three slight (15 degree) bends. This will be used in a salon environment where the dryer operates approx 3 times daily.
Thank you for your question. This unit should work great for your application. Based on your ducting configuration, you should be able to move bewteen 150-180 CFM with this unit, which should be sufficient to effectivley vent your dryer. The unit has a 4" intake and exhaust so it should fit right inline without the need for reducers.
How long is the electrical cord
This unit has an 8 ft. power cord.
Can this be mounted directly at the back of dryer right where exhaust opening comes out of dryer in between dryer and wall. Dryer is close to wall, room is small.
Yes. This fan can be mounted at any point along the ducting from the dryer to the exit.
My duct is 4" Solid aluminum duct: will this fan work or do I need different item/size? I will need a professional electrician to install, since 9' of my duct is in the wall with about 5' exposed in the attic and out a roof vent? Also, I do not have an electric outlet in the attic but all sorts of wires going everywhere into the house Any advice would be helpful. Thanks
This fan should work fine through 15 feet of 4 inch dryer vent ducting as long as there is not more than 2 bends or elbows in the ducting. There will be a little bit of pressure loss due to the restricted duct size, but it shouldn't be much.
Can this be used for gas dryers?
Yes. Electric or gas dryers.
do you need to use a lint trap with this fan. It does not say anything about one in the description
You do not need a lint trap in order for the fan to work. The lint trap is a good idea to improve the life of the fan.
