just fitted my new white knight gas dryer. it fitted in a purpose built
cupboard on top of a washing machine. it vents through a pipe to outside.
the instructions say that if the dryer is in a room of less than 10m2 then a
permanent ventilator of 100cm2 is required! is this correct? seems a bit
big to me. the cupboard is vented with two placy vents 9in by 6inch. one at
the top and one at the bottom. the washer and dyer has at least 1 inch of
space to allow circulation of air all round.
surly they mean 100mm2?
A 9in by 6in vent is almost 350cm2.
Make sure the instructions don't mean you need 100cm2 between the room and
the outside, though. I presume this is for combustion air. If you get it
wrong, you die.
