Properly Venting a Dryer
We live in an old Wardman rowhouse in Columbia Heights. The dryer, which is in the basement, has never been properly vented, and we’re investigating how best to do that. The options I’ve read about are:
1. Rig up a plexiglass vent to vent through a nearby window.
2. Replace the window entirely to install one that includes a venting half.
3. Core drill through the brick wall to reach the outside.
4. Gain access to and drill through the lap joist at the top of the basement wall.
What set up do you have? Are you happy with it? Given your experience, which of the four do you consider the best option?
Thanks for your help!
