is lint trap needed in my situation?

M_N_ANovember 22, 2013

I've read here that "lint trap is secondary filter placed in-line with the discharge venting from your dryer and serves to keep the venting clean. The longer or more convoluted the dryer vent run, the more necessary - fire hazard concerns and all. "

Our dryer is right next to an exterior wall one the first floor so the vent will go right out. is there any need to install lint trap?

also most lint trap i searched says "for dryer boosting applications". what is that?

No need for an extra lint trap in your situation.
