Dryer Ventilation Question
Another question having to do with dryer ventilation - do's and don'ts...
In all the readings I have done, I can not find the specifics on the maximum HEIGHT from the dryer up the wall. (All says maximum run with "X" amount of elbows...)
To help you help me, my setup would look like the following description:
From the Dryer (in the basement) to a 4" 90 deg elbow upward, to either two 45s or one 90 degree elbow, then to a vent pipe through the siding to the outside of house. Additionally, the total run from the dryer will not exceed 40 feet.
(Part of my research in this regard is simply to address the concern having to do with the lint fires potential. Research shows me that most home owners don't really pay much attention to this, and lint clogs in the vent tube over time, which then leads to a fire that burns the entire house down.)
