Do any of you have an idea how long a run I can get away with from the dryer
to the vent outlet ?
I'm having an extension built onto the house and it will make life a lot
easier if I can put the dryer in a position which does not have a useable
outside wall i.e. the other side of the wall is on the property line and
using it would vent into the neighbour's garden. If all else fails, I guess
I could fit a condenser but am not sure how effective they are.
suggestions welcome - Phian
we've used a condenser for the past 10 years, I would never
go back to one requiring a vent again as it avoids so much hassle running
ductwork all over the place. We have never had any issues with condensation
(which we had with our old one, even when using the vent) so I would
I used to have a washer/dryer but was not at all impressed so when it packed
up I replaced it with separate appliances. The dryer is in the garage until
the extension gets built so I haven't fitted a wall vent, just a cheap
condenser which seems to do the trick but I would be concerned about getting
too much moisture in there if I left it like that permanently.
