In response to Re: venting gas dryers
Gas dryers should not be vented in a way that would allow it to come into the windows. Most plumbing codes for plumbing vents require 12 feet on the horizontal from an open window to allow for dispersion.

: We live on the second story of a three story condo complex. The laundry room is directly below our unit.
: The 10 gas dryers in the laundry room vent outside, but when anyone uses the dryers we get a lot of steam/exhaust
: clouds around our unit's windows. (All windows in the unit face the same way.) Sometimes the smell of
: fabric softener is so strong we have to turn off the A/C or close all windows. We are concerned about
: carbon monoxide emissions in the exhaust and how that may be affecting us. Is it advisable to vent dryers
: up to the roof? Or is it OK to vent them right outside living spaces? Any help would be greatly appreciated!
: Thanks.
