Re: Cold clothes dryer

what you are quoting says rigid vent, aluminum vent is a rigid vent it isn't only made in a flex.

but YOU would have to understand what you cut and paste and that would mean you would have to have a basic knowledge. which you keep showing you don't

Re: Cold clothes dryer

Once again Blue Ridge has reduced another thread down to a sounding board for herself.

The OP had stated his dryer setup .... that Blue Ridge has condemed ..... is done to code.

However according to Blue Ridge's supposed knowledge and experience this can't be so.

Blue Ridge whatever you may believe ...... things will get approved and and codes will be met without your involvement or blessing .

Oh .... I am licensed to drive.:p:D

you do realize that there is an aluminum rigid duct? not just aluminum flex?

Sure do. And in many cases either model codes, listings, manufacturer's instructions, locally drafted codes, and local ammendments prohibit or restrict its use for venting GAS clothes dryers, non-condensing type (most especially if in contact with or within a certain proximity to: mortar, masonry, "concrete", "cement", etc.).

rigid aluminum is what you will find in most new construction in homes for venting of dryers regardless of elec or gas.

Nope and your saying that is some sort of fact doesn't make it so.

I acknowledged aluminum rigid vent pipe way back. Still shouldn't be used in basement or masonry wall penetrations as indicated. Semi-rigid is not permitted by the National Fuel Gas Code to be used for GAS clothes dryers.
Aluminum HEAVY walled rigid dryer venting for electric is common. for GAS is NOT recommended for venting near grade or via masonry or concrete for gas clothes dryers. THIN walled aluminum duct is NOT recommended for either gas or electric clothes dryers. The Standard is based on heavy walled galvanized steel. Stainless Steel is next. Heavy walled aluminum has a limited application.

There is a reason the codes have changed, one of them has been continued home fires, another moisture, mold, rot problems in homes - both issues contributed to by ineffecient venting of the gas clothes drier. As we strive to be more energy efficient and make our homes more comfortable, draft free, etc. we learn that other things are effected - this is one of those areas. This is really not old news - discussion on this issue goes back to the late 80s and early 90s code cycles changes have occured with every code cycle of every model code.

Re: Cold clothes dryer

If the original poster's gas clothes dryer venting situation was correct would not be having UPDRAFTS of cold to first floor laundry area where venting was down inside wall under floor in unconditioned basement space and out through outside wall.

you have already stated you didn't have experience that your knowledge was only from google.

Re: Cold clothes dryer

Of course .... if it was done to code the ducting used would be directional .... the arrows would pointing toward the exterior.

If she had her way......the whole freakin' world would grind to complete halt .......awaiting her personal approval/sanction of everything contemplated by anyone.

I repeat.......

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Messiah...(self-concept))

"Messiah complex is a state in which the individual believes themselves to be, or destined to become, the saviour of the particular field, a group, an event, a time period, or in an extreme scenario, the world. This could also be the state in which a group views an individual as a messiah, such as followers of a cult leader. The cult leader doesn't have to claim to be a messiah, but if he is treated as such by his followers, it can also be classified as such.

Messiah Complex may also refer to a person who has formed a habit of "creating" crisis in a given culture, only to later "rescue" or "save" the poor helpless soul upon whom the crisis has been perpetrated."
