Common Uses for Flexible Duct
Both in commercial and residential applications, flex ducts are mainly used in venting applications. Some flex duct applications include clothes dryers, bathroom fans, and the occasional range hood. Only certain models of range hoods require venting. All range hoods are designed for venting, but it is not required. This is not the case with Dryers and Bathroom fans, however. These appliances need to be vented to the outdoors, whether by a roof or wall cap. Venting these appliances to the outside is important so that your exhaust is not blowing around your attic or crawlspace.
Note: to make secure connections between the appliance and dryer duct or the duct and the venting cap; it is important to use aluminum tape. Duct tape should never be used. Even though it has the word “duct” in its name, its adhesive will crack and loosen over time.
