Mobile Home Venting
« on: July 12, 2014, 03:52:43 AM »
Hello,

I live in a mobile home and had a new dryer installed a few months ago. The company that installed the dryer put the vent down underneath the mobile home. I know that there is some natural air that flows underneath the mobile home, but I'm not sure if that is enough for carbon monoxide to escape without entering the home. I have a few carbon monoxide detectors, but they haven't been set off. I have a 15-17' run to get a new vent installed to the outside of the home. Do you know if the vent that they installed is ok?

sounds like you have a gas dryer.  some mobile homes have enough air gaps that letting the air "dump" into the "crawlspace" would be ok.  I prefer to not allow the hot, lint laiden air that is very moist contaminate my crawlspace area.  I would add a 90 and shoot it outside the perimeter with a termination hood vent of some sort.  Keeps the rodents out.
