insects from entering the home.
Exhaust hood must be at least 30,5 cm (12") from the ground or
any object that may be in the path of the exhaust (such as
flowers, rocks or bushes, etc.).
If using an existing vent system, clean lint from the entire length
of the system and make sure exhaust hood is not plugged with
lint. Replace any plastic or metal foil vent with rigid metal or
flexible metal vent.

installation instructions should adequately meet this requirement.
