Would you dump a gallon of water in your basement? Of course not. That could cause all kinds of problems, and it could cost you a lot of money if it leads to mold growth or a similar problem. Why do we ask that? Well, if you are running a dryer that doesn’t vent properly to the outside of your home, that is basically what you are doing every time you run a load through it.
The average load of laundry contains about a gallon of water, so the amount of moisture you add to the air in your basement can add up really quickly. To avoid this, you want to make sure that you get the dryer vent set up properly so that all that moisture is vented to the outside. This requires that the duct is as straight as possible leading directly outside. It is also important to keep the duct clean since lint buildup in the duct could pose a fire hazard.
While there are some devices that will allow you to vent your dryer inside, these are not good for your home.
