Customer Questions & Answers

where is it connected?

Can this be connected at the end of the duct where it goes to the outside? Or does it have to be connected at the other end of the duct where it comes out of the dryer?
Asked by: Heather
It gets connected at the dryer output; preferable at the need of a hose where you can reach it easily. then another hose goes from it to the dryer exhausted behind the dryer. You switch the air from exhausting into your house in the winter to recoup the moisture and heat you house needs in the winter. At least in the northern states.

why don't Lowes or Home Depot carry this product?

Asked by: BIGREDAIRPLANE
Due to space limitations it is not possible to accommodate some of the products on the shelves in store. If a product is not available in store we suggest researching it online, in this case by typing "ex12 deflecto" into the search engine of your choice.

Does it keep cold outside air from flowing back into the room?

Asked by: DXS
When set to divert heat from the dryer into the room, air from outside can still flow from the vent mounted on the outside wall into the room through the duct until it reaches the diverter. Unless of course a damper is present in the outside vent

Extra-Heat Dryer Heat Diverter is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant product to help with high heating costs! This is a great product for anyone that wants to save cash and energy on heating your house. The heating costs for my house are high, so why not use the heat from your dryer to help with heating your home? Had it installed in just under 10 minutes and with the first load of laundry could tell the difference. On cold winter days it also help with adding humidity into your house so you don't have to run a humidifier constantly also. Only improvement I would have liked to see with the diverter is a better way to mount it so its not just laying on the floor. I actually ended up drilling a small hole from the inside and used a screw to mount it to the wall to blow the heated moist air in a more controlled direction. You need to use a fairly flat headed screw so the baffle will pass the screw head and let you switch back and forth from blowing air inside or to the outside vent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for Electric dryers! I wouldn't ever use this on a gas dryer because the exhaust would probably kill you. This is meant for electric dryers only and it will help warm up the basement. Although, when the water is being vaporized, it will be sent into your home and you will notice condensation on your windows (in winter). So realize you are sending moisture into your house when you use this when the electric dryer is on, drying clothes. It does work and warms up an area such as the basement. Plus, with a fabric softener sheet, it smells up your basement too. Easy to install, easy to use. It does what it's supposed to do.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Deflecto dryer vent diverter Been using for years - have only had to replace once. Little flimsy but I'm 60 years old female & not very mechanical & I was able to remove old one &replace by myself. Wish flap lever was little stronger - my son bent it out sideways instead of pushing straight back so getting ready to break off now but for $6 will buy new box & just replace the flap. Definitely helps to warm nearby rooms & anything helps to save electricity.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not worth the $6.00 You get what you pay for. less than a week after I bought this the lever broke off; which wasn't surprising since it was a plastic stem not even a quarter inch in diameter. I wish there was something of better quality out there. Even if I had to pay 3 or four times the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product Puts off good heat, works as a humidifier, and makes the place smell good all from power you would use anyway. Not for use with gas dryer

Rated 5 out of 5 by from waste heat rocks! This thing rocks! I've been using this product for 4 or 5 years. It allows you to recycle your waste heat in the winter and vent it in the summer. As an added bonus it also acts as a winter humidifier and makes your house smell like clean laundry. The only drawback is that you have to clean a second lint trap.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from deflect-o extra heat I HAVE USED THIS PRODUCT IN 2 PLACES I HAVE RENTED. ONE HOUSE HAD DRYER IN BASEMENT, OTHER WAS IN GARAGE. HELPS SAVE MONEY ON THE HEAT BILL. EASY TO INSTALL, OR REMOVE TO TAKE WITH YOU IF YOU MOVE. I AM VERY HAPPY WITH THIS PRODUCT. I RECOMMEND TO EVERYONE.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works TOO good!! We bought this to help cut our heating costs and also because our dryer vent in partially clogged and maintenance is too lazy to do anything about it. It cut my drying time down drastically and it will heat the house up very quickly. I'm pleased with it, but it is a bit flimsy. We put holes straight through the back into a stud.
