We recently purchased a new home and discovered that the main floor clothes dryer vents down into a basement crawl space. Obviously this is not good and is adding a lot of moisture to my basement. I am trying to determine my best route to vent this. I can go up through the ceiling if need be but was trying to avoid it. The room is an enclosed breezway surrounded by a stairwell to the basement behind, attached garage to one side, and a zero clearance deck on the other side. going up would then angle the roof vent over my deck or over my side entrance to the breezeway, but would be shortest and straightest. Ideas/suggestions?
