Issue with Dryer venting to Soffit/Eave Vent
I have a gas dryer venting via a 4" Lambro Under Eave vent. Since it is not a straight path it is not the best situation for venting in general but was limited by the architectural front elevation of the house. We are having a problem with our dryer leaking gas internally and the utility company came to check the dryer. The technician claimed our exhaust vent was not up to code. It is a 4" vent but the exit is 4 inches wide but only 2&1/2 inches high at the flap. He said he would have to RED TICKET me in their computer.
Anybody have any idea if we are in compliance or not? When the house was built 7 years ago the town inspectors had no issue with it. Lambro also sells is specifically for this purpose.
