Dryer Duct Insulation

Recommended Posts

I'm looking for a reference - code or manufacturer - stating dryer ducts in cold non-conditioned spaces should be insulated.

The IRC doesn't mention insulation, but it does say that the dryer has to be installed in accordance with the manufacturer's instructions. 

A quick search revealed that some manufacturers require it and some don't. 

Example, page three here:
