Hi, I'm Tyler Elliott with Elliott Remodeling, and in this segment we are going to show you how install a dryer vent. The first step in replacing your dryer vent is, of course, to remove the old vent. Usually, you can cut it off or just remove the slip screws that hold it on to the old dryer. The second step is to make sure you get all the extra lint that has been caught up over the years out of the vent before you install the new one. Third step is to install the new vent using zip ties or slip screws like the old ones. And the fourth and final step is to make sure that there are little-to-no turns within the vent, so that your dryer can vent quickly and efficiently. Again, I'm Tyler Elliott with Elliott Remodeling, and that's how to install a dryer vent.
