Multiple
dryer exhausting
guide
Many multiple-family
dwellings are furnished with pro-
visions in the building for washing and drying laundry
with automatic washers and dryers. The exhausting of
the individual clothes dryers can be accomplished with
a central exhaust vent system. The following is a list
of factors for possible consideration
in the design of
a central vent system for this type of installation.
Each room where dryers are located should have
make-up air equal to or greater than the CFM of all
dryers in the room.
This information is intended for general guide purposes
only and does not necessarily include all factors which
may be required for consideration
in a given situation.
If specific information on multiple exhausting is required,
contact a local sheet metal contractor.
1. Provide all dryers with individual lint screens before
connecting to any central exhaust vent system.
2. Exhaust individual dryers to the central exhaust vent
system with proper sized venting to assure adequate
performance of each dryer. (Dryer has 4-inch exhaust
vent connection.)
3. Install barometric dampers on each individual dryer
exhaust vent. These dampers may be used for bal-
ancing out the overall vent system. Dampers may be
secured or built locally from a sheet metal fabricator.
4. Make all electric supply connections to individual
dryers in accordance with manufacturer's
installation
instructions and applicable local codes requirements.
NOTE: Check code requirements. Some codes limit or
do not permit installation of clothes dryers in garages,
closets, mobile homes, or sleeping quarters. Contact
your local building inspector.
This dryer is suitable for mobile home installations. The
installation must conform to the Manufactured
Home
Construction and Safety Standard, Title 24 CFR, Part
3280 (formerly the Federal Standard for Mobile Homes
Construction and Safety, Title 24, HUD Part 280).
• Use at least the minimum installation clearance shown
in the chart. This will ensure you have an adequate
clearance for service and proper operation
and that
you have a sufficient distance from combustible
construction.
• Dryer exhaust vent must not be connected or secured
with screws or other devices which extend into the
interior of the vent.
NOTE: Check code requirements. Some codes limit or do
not permit installation of clothes dryers in garages, closets,
mobile homes, or sleeping quarters. Contact your local
building inspector.
• Refer to the chart below for recommended
installation
requirements. This will ensure you have an adequate
clearance for service and proper operation and that you
have a sufficient distance from combustible
construction.
• Be sure your location allows for a proper exhaust
installation. See "Exhaust requirements."
NOTE: No fuel-burning appliances may be installed in
the same closet as a dryer.
