What is it? …

It fixed a problem we experience in the winter.

We didn’t know that this simple fix was even available.

It was inexpensive.

It saves us money.

It is not a miniature chimney.

Here are some hints:

Our feet are now nice and toasty in the winter.

I believe Tad saw this fix in This Old House Magazine.

Tad searched the world wide – for the best deal.  Not really, but he did search the internet pretty thoroughly to check out the options.

It is an “upgrade” – for $30 or less.

It keeps the cold out and the heat in.

It is a bit like a little anteroom – or mini vestibule – or revolving door – or air lock chamber on a space ship – between the inside and outside of our laundry room.

Is it a dryer exhaust vent – you ask?

Well – yes – it is a dryer exhaust vent.

It may not be glamorous. It may not be high tech.  It may not be riveting.  It does make doing laundry a bit more luxurious?  Maybe, luxurious is a little bit of an exaggeration.  Still though, this thing is worth installing at your house.
