Heartland Dryer Vent Closure System

The Energy Saving Dryer Vent Closure™ keeps outside air out as well as birds, bugs, and rodents; as opposed to conventional dryer vents, where outside air enters your home through the exposed dryer vent, which means higher heating bills in winter and higher cooling bills in summer. It can be painted and easily mounted over a 4" vent pipe.

You would be amazed at how much cold air coming through your dryer vent adds to your heating bill- and how hot, muggy summer air adds to air conditioning costs. With Heartland Product's Energy Saving Dryer Vent Closure™ you will never have to worry about these problems again - nor the problem of insects and small animals getting inside your venting ducts.

The Energy Saving Dryer Vent Closure™ is designed with an air activated floating shuttle cup, which gives you a positive close when the dryer is not in use. It is easy to clean and is far superior to the common "flapper" type that often stick open with lint accumulation or freeze open in the winter.

The Energy Saving Dryer Vent Closure™ can be painted to match the exterior of your home. It also can be used on most low velocity fans such as a bathroom fan or range hood fan.

ENERGY SAVING DRYER VENT CLOSURE™ WINDOW WELL INSTALLATION:
For the Energy Saving Dryer Vent Closure™ to function properly, it must be installed in a vertical position. Remove the window pane and replace with exterior grade plywood. Cut a 4" hole in the plywood. A surface area of 14" in height is required to mount the Energy Saving Dryer Vent™ flush with the window. Mount the Energy Saving Dryer Vent™ in a vertical position over the existing hole. If there is not a 14" space, mount the top of the canister to the siding of the house above the window, lining up the elbow and the square flange (the flat portion of the elbow) with the existing hole. Use exterior, high density styrofoam (6 ˝" by 6 ˝" pieces) to fill the space between the square flange and the window plywood. The number of pieces of styrofoam needed will vary with the distance between the flange and window. Be sure there are no gaps between the flange and window. If multiple pieces of styrofoam are used, secure the pieces to the square flange with rubber bands. The bands can be cut and removed after the vent is installed. Before inserting the styrofoam, be sure and cut a 4" vent hole in all pieces. To secure the bottom flange to the window plywood, insert wood screws through the flange and styrofoam into the window plywood. The length of the screws needed will be determined by the distance between the square flange and plywood window.

SIDING INSTALLATION:
General Directions: The vent can be adapted to many different types of siding. For the vent to function properly, it must be installed in a vertical position. In most instances, the vent will fit flush to the outside wall. Simply remove the existing vent and cut the existing vent pipe flush with the outside wall. The existing vent pipe must not protrude into the vent. NOTE: The Energy Saving Dryer Vent Closure™ does not include vent pipe ducting. The 6 ˝" square flange on the vent mounts over the top of the existing hole, allowing the air to flow from the existing duct through the 4" elbow and out the bottom of the vent canister.

ALUMINUM SIDING:
For the vent to function properly, it must be installed in a vertical position. Install according to "General Directions", except use 1 ˝" wood screws. If it doesn't appear to be airtight, you may have to caulk around the square flanges.

LAP SIDING:
For the vent to function properly, it must be installed in a vertical position. Do not assemble the vent before mounting. Mount the square flange on the elbow to the existing vent hole. Place the canister in position on top of the elbow. With pen or chalk, outline the rectangular canister flange on the siding at the appropriate mounting placement. Cut out this portion of the siding. This enables the vent to be mounted in a true vertical position. Caulk with silicone around the canister flange to seal out moisture.

BRICK, BLOCK OR CONCRETE:
For the vent to function properly, it must be installed in a vertical position. Mount with masonry screw anchors. Secure the vent with appropriate screws. Silicone the edge of the square flange to prevent leakage.

OTHER APPLICATIONS FOR THE VENT: BATHROOM VENT:
When the bathroom is vented on the side of the house, follow the appropriate instructions given for your type of siding or building material. When venting through the roof, the elbow is not used. The vent canister fits over the top of the existing 4" (outside diameter) pipe. For proper venting, the canister must rest at least 6" above the roofline. If the existing pipe is too small, use a 4" (outside diameter) pipe reducer to adapt the existing pipe to the proper size. Use plastic cement to adhere the canister to plastic pipe. If the existing is not plastic, a "friction fit" will keep the canister in place.

BEFORE YOU REPLACE:
Consider cleaning your venting system with a product like the LintEater, here are some quick dryer vent cleaning  tips.

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS:

ASSEMBLE:
Insert the smooth edge of the plastic elbow into the bottom of the plastic vent body.

PREPARE VENT OPENING:
Remove the old hood and flapper of the existing dryer vent by removing screws or cutting with hacksaw blade. Clean lint accumulated in tube through wall.

INSTALL:
Place the flat portion of the elbow on the wall, lining up holes in wall and elbow. Mount the vent in a vertical position as shown below. Secure the 6 screws (provided) through the top bracket of vent and flat portion of elbow.

PAINT:
Paint with water base paint, if desired.

MAINTENANCE:
Remove the vent lid periodically and clean out any lint build-up, which may restrict free movement on the floating member.
