Product Overview

  • Included current switch reliably turns fan on/off with dryer
  • For installations between 25 and 140 equivalent feet
  • For use with electric dryers
Suncourt's Dryer Boosting Kits are ideal for solving residential, commercial and industrial dryer vent problems where more airflow is needed. Most dryers are designed to vent about 15 ft. of duct. They supplement the fan in your dryer to enhance its efficiency. Their in-line construction allows for easy installation as well as reduced clogging. They have a high temperature rating up to 140 Degree F/60 Degree C. The fan has thermal overload protection and features an automatic reset. The Suncourt Dryer Boosting Kits come with an accurate, reliable current sensing switch that turns the fan on and off when it senses current from the dryer. Stack effect, wind and installation can interfere with the operation of pressure switches by starting the fan unnecessarily or simply not turning the fan on when required.

Questions & Answers

can I used this dryer booster with a gas dryer?

everything I have read specifically mentions electric dryers but never gas
Asked by: Allwayslearning
I beleive the Suncourt rep's answer of "no", but would like to know why not. Another fan makers rep, on this portal, claims their is no difference between gas and elec.- but the switch for that fan is a pressure sensor switch not an electrical sensor switch.

Can this be used with a gas dryer?

Asked by: JP
Absolutely no! Electrically it may work, but on suncourt's website it clearly states that the DRY04 is not approved for gas dryers. This is important because if your ignighter fails, which mine has before, you will be sending unburnt natural gas through your dryer vent. If the fan motor is not rated for gas service it could spark and ignighte it. Combine that with the spinning fan and you could be shooting flames out your dryer vent that could set your grass on fire. There are dryer boosters out there that are rated for gas dryers. The motor is usually outside the vent pipe. They also typically have a temperature sensor that won't allow the unit to start until there is hot air blowing past the booster. Check the manufacturers website to make sure the booster is rated for gas dryers before purchasing.

How does the booster fan "sense" current to the dryer?

My dryer is on the ground floor of the house and I want to install the booster fan in the vent line in the attic. How do I get the booster fan to "sense" current to the dryer? Do I have to run wiring between the dryer and the booster fan?
Asked by: munreaux
A current sensing device needs to be installed in the power feed line to the dryer. The device is provided but must be mounted in an electrical box. This device itself operates as a switch in a line providing 120VAC power to the blower.

Where do you install the booster. At the beginning, middle or end of duct

Asked by: BobM
Hello, The Dryer Booster fan can be installed almost anywhere in the dryer duct but there are three lengths you need to be concerned with. 1. Do not install your DRY04 closer than 6 feet (1.8 meters) to the dryer air outlet. 2. Do not install your DRY04 in a duct with a total equivalent length of less than 25 feet (7.5 meters). 3. Do not install your DRY04 in a duct with a total equivalent length greater than 140 feet (46 meters) Equivalent feet is the total linear length of straight duct plus five feet for each elbow or bend. If you have any questions please feel free to contact us at 800-999-3267 M-F 8-4:30 central time. Thanks, Suncourt

4 in. Dryer Booster Kit is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 32.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from The blower worked fine but after having to order two... The blower worked fine but after having to order two different units and higher an electrician because I thought I was doing something wrong. We ended up having to bypass the black box that is supposed to sense electrical current and automatically turn unit on and of with dryer. both black box's did not work. ended up put in a box with a timer switch that has to be turned on manually. Otherwise the motor itself works fine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 50ft with 2 90 degree bends! I read a review that theirs didn't turn on half the time. Make sure that the wire that goes thru the included current sensing switch (should be the neutral wire) loops around and goes through the hole twice. Or try replacing the current sensing switch all together.

Had to put it in a 4" square box and it was tight. The wiring in the unit is really small compared to # 12 or # 14 wire are was hard to terminate in the unit.
