Dryer Vents Ruin Homes and Make People Sick
« on: January 27, 2008, 07:50:26 AM »

Here is a interesting video I found on youtube that shows you the damage a dryer vent can do.

Be sure to check and clean your dryer vent often.

That was a very informative and useful video. :)
My philosophies:

Thanks AJ for the video.  It was very informative.  I never considered all the implications of the moist air coming out into the house.  I had heard that during the winter you let your dryer vent into the house because that adds moisture and saves having to run the humidifier.
