"It sounds like it would be mostly seasonal use...  sheets and towels outside during the summer time on a clothes line.... in that case a controlled damper opening up only when dryer runs might not be unreasonable.  But if you do it...…"

"Yes, the condensing dryer works well for sheets and towels IF you don't mind waiting.  It takes A LOT longer than gas dryer and the capacity is smaller.   I just looked at the installation instruction for my dryer and it requires…"

"Dennis, The dryer would be in the basement, and I would only be using if for sheets and towels, which don't hang-dry very well (too stiff according to my wife)."

"Hello Scott!   The electric ventless dryer will, indeed, keep the heat in the house, but it will also keep the moisture from the wet clothing, bedding, etc, in the house.  You may be setting yourself up for a future mold problem, depending…"

clothes dryer: vented or ventless?

I am considering buying an electric clothes dryer for my home (which is all-electric).   I could go with a conventional vented dryer, or a ventless condensing dryer.   I am inclined toward the ventless dryer because it will keep the heat in the house (beneficial through most of the year in central Illinois); I can also place it near my heat pump water heater.   But there may be other factors to consider, and I also have no experience with a ventless clothes dryer.   Any thoughts or advice? …See More
