Is there a “direct vent” clothes dryer or kitchen hood?
It seems to me we focus on creating super tight envelopes and then cut holes in it to purposely blow out an enormous amount of air with clothers dryers and kitchen hoods. We either create negative pressure in the home or bring in unconditioned air with make up dampers. HRV’s and ERV’s now solve that issue with bath fans, but isn’t there anything out there for dryers and hoods? My thought is there should be some kind of venting system like the direct vent on the back of a fireplace where the incoming air gets conditioned by the outgoing air. Does anyone know of such devices or has anyone jury rigged up a solution?
