Help me please. I cant find a exterior dryer exhaust vent that I can install under and eve, The ones I've seen (and have) all are made for a horizontal application. These vents will close when installed horizontally but wont when installed under an eve. My vent hangs open because it's intalled upside down. I need a vent that will close when not in use so the varmits wont get in. Looked several places for something that might be spring loaded but have had no luck.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks,
Tom

Have a look at this hood. I wouldn't worry about the flap not closing as long as there's a guard over it.

If you can avoid an "eve mount" application you will be much better off.

If you scroll down to the bottom of the page you will see the "dryer el's".
If you can add one to your application Vs. a standard 90 degree turn it would
be much better. Those are good prices as well.

but if the Vent doesn't close,
then you'd have air infiltration during the heating and cooling seasons

Why don't you think the flaps will close on that under-eave vent, it is made for exactly that purpose and the flaps will close.

You may think from the picture that the flap is hanging open but it's not, it is actually being shown blown open by the vent that comes down in the middle of the unit and vents out both sides, (with a flapper on both sides).

Yes, the vent I have now wont close when not in use. I need a vent that will. All the vents I've seen so far flop closed with gravity when the airflow stops. I would need one that is possibly spring loaded .

This look exactly like what I need. Not sure if it will mount easily but will check it out. Thanks

This is a link (hope it works) to the application .pdf for this particular vent in case anyone is interested. Looks like it would be easy to mount under an eve. I'm going to try it.
