Venting Dryer to Indoor Space
I work at a condo complex and one of the owners wants to add an electric dryer that will be vented through a filter into 2x3x8 foot closet. The board of directors doesn’t want any holes in the building envelope for aesthetic reasons, so this is the solution that the owners are considering. I dissent!
My concern is the moisture from the laundry will end up in a closet where the lint trap will be located. At best, it will diffuse through the condo, and due to very poor air sealing during construction, into the attic and walls.
Could you guys please weigh in on venting a dryer into an indoor space?
