Dry Vent location in new house

2 posts in this topic

If one doesn't know what Dryer one is going to purchase can I determine the best location for the dryer vent in a new house. I will be locating the dryer right next to the outside wall. I was hoping that one could go right out the side of the dryer through the wall but I don't know if all dryers do this and if so what are the dimensions for this.

Any help here would be appreciated.

One would be advised to locate the dryer and its vent as you've descibed.  In fact, I've seen many more than one such configuration and one could say that it is optimal. 

One consideration that one may take into one's consideration is to place the dryer vent hole in the wall at an offset to the dryer's own vent hole to facilitate the use of a quality venting kit such as this one.
