I would recommend using a 316Ti Stainless Steel Flexible Chimney Liner for your wood stove. I believe the chimney socket you refereed to is a thimble. The flex liners are generally sold as kits and the connection you would want to use is a Tee connection. The tee connection is comprised of two parts to make the connection through the thimble or socket. You ...

You should not vent out the soffit if you have soffit vents. The moist air will be sucked into the soffit vents, and cause just as much (or more) trouble as venting directly into the attic. The best option is to vent out the gable end of the attic. Make sure the ducting is sloped slightly back towards the fan, so condensate can drain. Use rigid metal ...

From a logistics standpoint, there are several manufacturers of 'silent' centripetal inline fans made to mate to 4" round ducting on either side. Pair this fan with a electronically controlled damper and some exterior access ...

My guess would be there are wholes, gaps, or rips in the ducts whereupon the system in operation is pulling the dust in from wall cavities, basement or attic (depending on where the ductwork runs). Once the contractor (or yourself) seals up and/or replaces any ductwork then ...

Since you are looking at your dryer vent, but don't mention climate or type of dryer, I will mention a few things. It is considered unsafe to vent a gas dryer indoors because the combustion fumes go into the vent also. Carbon monoxide and all that. If you have a very dry climate and an electric dryer, vent it right in the laundry room (you can add an ...

I'm guessing nobody in here uses a humidifier in the winter? (Screw weighing your clothes before and after drying... measure the amount of water multiple tanks you may use daily goes into the house and the fact your being inefficient while doing so) I have to laugh at all the people going crazy about NVR VENT INDOORS. I run an indoor line (with ...

Yes, that's considered safe. The operating temperature of a dryer vent is not a problem for direct wood contact. Keep the vent clear and you'll have no fire. Ensure all joints are foil taped, so lint does not escape from the pipe. Should lint escape the pipe, it can build up in the wall. Use a "long sweep" elbow to make the vent easier to clean out. ...
