Bob Kildea, of Home Energy Insight in Kalamazoo, Michigan sendt us this "What Were They Thinking" story in 2009: "I saw this installation in the basement of a home occupied by several young adults in Kalamazoo, Michigan. They needed a clothes dryer, so they installed one. They didn't realize that
it was hot, humid air that comes out of a dryer, and not water. This
situation has been in place for at least a year, and one of the
occupants has indicated that at times there is moisture and slime on the
basement walls."

The plot thickens in the March/April 2009 issue of Home Energy.
