Anyone ever install one? Anyone have any advice. I'm dealing with 30 feet of dryer vent with 3 90 degree bends.
A dryer booster is a good idea in principle, but do they really work. Plenty of infomercials feature products that are good in theory, but don't work or do what they claim.
It makes me a little nervous that none of the major big box hardware stores carry them, I also am a little apprehensive about feeding electricity into a dryer vent with the lint and fire hazard.
I was looking at the Suncourt Dry04 and so far have found two good reviews on it.
Re: Dryer Booster
Code in many areas forbid their use. It is never a good idea to have a blower in a line that can fill with lint. One lint ball can jam the blower, the blower over heat, and now your house is on fire.
