Hello to all!
I have a question that I thought someone might be able to help me with. We
are remodeling our house and adding 600 sq. ft. Our laundry facilities are
moving from the garage to a laundry room approximately in the middle of the
house. There is no easy way to run a horizontal vent to an outside wall.
What is the best way to vent our dryer? Can I run the vent up to the attic
and then to the outside? Can I just run the vent to the attic and put a lint
trap in attic? Is a booster fan what I need? Any input would be welcome!
Thanks in advance!
Venting into the attic is a fire hazard in addition to other problems
If you vent up, include a clean-out.
Daughter has a Miele dryer that vents into a bucket of water and works
As long as the vent is only a single story high, then you should
not have any problems. I own a couple of duplexes where the
dryers are vented up through the roof and they work just fine.
Mind you, these are one story buildings with shallow roofs.
if you have a two story house or a steep pitched roof you
may have different results.
Do not vent dirrectly into the attic. This is A Bad Idea (tm).
Moisture = Condensation= Mold and Rot = Expensive repair.
Just my $0.02 worth. Hope it helps
