That's mighty nice of you Pesky. I tell them that the closest place they can get one is the back of my van.

That is an easy $75.00 > $125 add on service for us.That includes an inspection and clean out of if necessary.

Problem is here in Michigan you need a heating and cooling lic to do anything like that, if the people forget to keep it clean and theres a fire from , this might void my insurance . I could be wrong

I'm with Paul and Bob. I install the heartland dryer vent and do a full duct clean as part of almost all of my exclusions.

Depends on state regs what goes or doesn't go over the vent. Some forbid it, some don't care. I find that a vent guard is less of a fire hazard than 2 pounds of pine needles stuffed into the vent by a starling, so I can't imagine any state regulator with 1/2 a brain forbidding the installation of a vent guard. Have pics of pine straw nests IN the dryer, for the day my state decides to try instituting a stupid "no vent guard" rule here.

Folks try the heartland that is sold by wcs. The claims of being self cleaning are true. I've gone back and checked some that were installed three years ago and no lint buildup found.

I may not be aware of what a heartland is, however we remove bird nest and charge our service fee plus 15.00 per vent materials to cover them. In less than a hour you can remove the nest or duct for that matter and cover with a bird proof vent cover and leave with $195.00. I think the material cost are about 4 to 5 dollars per vet with an average of two vent. I buy my vent covers from WCS and they are actually made a couple miles from me, LOL

Fortunately for us, we find way more bathroom vents with nests in them. This makes life easier as you don't have to worry about clogging after you put a vent screen on.

Kevin, I think you were in the Navy,...so you understand the irony in "government logic".

Tim, I think the Heartland vent is what WCS calls The Energy Saving dryer Vent Cover. This has a 90 degree upward bend from the duct flange, then a little "ball in cage" apparatus for sealing the airway. The air pressure provided by the fan lifts the ball and gravity holds it in place when the fan or dryer is off. I like 'em, have installed a dozen or so.
Then there's the No-Pest vent. It's a lot like a store-bought hood, except it has two flaps. Haven't had the opportunity to try one of these.
