Depending on the type of tumble dryer you own and the layout of your kitchen or utility – the type of venting solution you need will vary. In this post we look at some of the options available to prevent steam, moisture and condensation building-up in your home.
Let Steam Escape to the Outside!
The first venting option is a wall vent kit. This type of vent kit provides a permanent solution from your tumble dryer to the wall. The kits are usually easy to install, but the installation will involve the removal of a house brick, or cutting a hole in the wall, to make room for the vent. A wall vent kit enables you to vent the condensation produced by the drying process direct to the outside via a vent hose.
An Innovative Solution for Indoor Venting
In some cases it may not be practical to vent your tumble dryer to the outside. A condensor box is the simple solution. The condensor box simply attaches to your tumble dryer using a vent hose. The box should be filled with ice or cold water and works by cooling the steam produced by the drying process, turning it back into water which can be easily discarded
