Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Richard 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 5.0 out of 5.0 by weekendyardman 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 1.0 out of 5.0 by invisibleman Flimsy Consruction
I don't know who wrote all the other reviews. i tried this, it's flimsy construction keeps falling apart, despite numerous attempts to put it back together I will return it to HD.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tony 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 5.0 out of 5.0 by JustinFromDC 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 5.0 out of 5.0 by Princessmanda 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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by chevroletman 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
