Venting a gas dryer
What is the best method of venting our new gas dryer? We have 2 options. the first one is the vent it directly into the garage directly behind the dryer through a cement wall.
The second option would be to take the exhaust pipe down through the crawl space and out to the back of the house - about 12 feet. the pipe would be very close to the back garden door.
I have heard that the bend in the exhaust pipe will cause a build up of lint in the second option, but that the first option has problems with it as well.
