Gas clothes dryer venting question
I am selling some property and the "inspector" says the gas vent from the dryer is too close to the ground..........it is.
I can raise it some but was checking different dryer installation instructions. What I found was they want 12" from grade to the bottom of the dryer vent..........I can't get it that high.
So 1 solution would be to come up through the floor in a corner of the bedroom and then out through the wall. I would then build a chase around it from the floor to the ceiling. That wouldn't be too bad except I will have to cut 6" or so off the Sterling fin tube baseboard.
Can't think of another solution, other than putting the chase outside which would look crappy and be difficult to seal.
Also, my real question I read NFPA #54 and from what I found the dryer vent doesn't require any clearance from wood as far as I can tell..........is this correct
