Indoor dryer vent kits are available at Amazon.com, Home Depot and Menards. These kits allow users to vent an electric clothes dryer indoors when outdoor venting is impossible. Gas clothes dryers create toxic fumes, so users cannot vent them indoors.
Before venting an electric clothes dryer indoors, it's important to check local building codes to ensure that the practice is approved. Because about one gallon of water is released into the air with each dryer cycle, venting a dryer indoors can create excessive humidity. Consumers may use a dehumidifer to counteract this problem. Using an indoor dryer vent may also create increased levels of lint in the air.
