ac compressor close to dryer vent

Can I place an elbow on the outside of the house to extend the exhaust away from house? Will one of the wrap aroud filters help?

need to move the dryer vent to another side of the house.the wind blowing with the unit running and the dryer going will clog the fins bigtime.then you'll be down when it's 90F outside $$$$ looking at a major coil cleaning
