Figured someone here may be able to help me out.. We recently bought a house and are moving the wash/dryer location in the laundry room. I was wondering if it would be possible to run the dryer vent up in the wall.. There is a conditioned crawl space below and the hole for the vent to go out through the house is very close to where we are putting the dryer. Maybe 5-7 feet away..
I would rather not lose the 4 inches of space in bringing the vent up through the floor if I can avoid it, I would like to bring it up through the wall and use one of the dryerboxes that recesses in the wall. Then when you hook it up to the dryer it coils back around so you can get closer to the wall.
My questions are.. The other side of the wall is a garage, and it is only a 2x4 wall. The area to come up from the crawl space is kind of difficult and I am guessing the 4" pipe would have to be an oval shaped.
Here is a picture to show where I would like to go up.
That coil protecting the dryer powerline is on the outside of the drywall, the space I would have to go up the wall would be from the back of that coil minus 1/2" for the drywall. Which only leaves a space of about 2 1/2" to go up. Possible? And what is the best method if it is?
