According to the manufacturer's specifications and local codes, dryer ducts are required to be a minimum of four inches in diameter and at least as large as the dryer outlet.
The developed length of your dryer's exhaust duct should never exceed a maximum of 25 feet, unless noted by your dryer's manufacturer or local code. (When determining developed length, each 90-degree turn adds five feet to the actual length.)
Dryer vents are required to be independent of all other systems and terminate outdoors, not into a chimney, attic, or crawl space.
Your outside dryer exhaust vent's termination hood should be equipped with a backdraft damper to help ensure that the exhaust does not come back into your home.
Metal transition ducts should be used between the exhaust duct and the dryer.
Flexible transition ducts should never be used inside of a crawl space, attic, or in a wall.
