All clothes dryers should be vented to the outdoors to prevent a number of hazards including dryer fires and carbon monoxide poisoning
Fairfax VA – Most dryer vent cleaning experts agree that indoor dryer vents are a poor choice. Inferior dryer vent systems including indoor dryer vents can allow excess heat and moisture into homes, leading to mold and mildew problems. Though indoor dryer vent systems are available, they are not adequate. Doug and Janice Bittner, owners of Dryer Vent Wizard, only install dryer vent systems that lead outdoors.
When asked about using the dryer vent designed for indoor venting, the Wizard explains to customers that one problem with the indoor dryer vent systems is that they must be kept full of water to trap lint while the warm air filters into the room. They also have a duct made of flexible foil which can be accidently crushed, blocking air flow from the dryer and causing it to over heat. Like all fuel-burning appliances, gas dryers must be properly vented to the outdoors to emit gas byproducts like carbon monoxide.
