    Bit of a weird one guys, we have this little cloths dryer and it's not hooked up to an exhaust so when we use it, I have to pick it up and put it in the garden. (for the heat)
    Now do you think it'd be ok to place in the downstairs cloak room (only when in use of course) as it's got an extractor fan in there.

    I can't see anything on the dryer that says how how it gets but tbh it's a bit **** so it's not that hot.

    I'm not really sure what damage it can do, but I suppose I don't want to open the door to check on the washing to find theres condensation all over the walls.

    cheers.

    Ooh, I don't know dude - I'd recommend against it. The exhaust puts out all sorts of lint and humid air and the area might get mildewed pretty fast. Lint itself is highly flammable and contact with a naked flame will turn your cloak room into an oven pretty fast...

    I'd put it against an outside wall and do it the usual way

    Hope it helps :thumb:

    You can buy a little plastic box that the filter pipe goes into, I can't for the life of me remember were I've seen them tho, they have been around for years and designed just for this job.

    Do you ever get a betterware catalogue?, I have a feeling I've seen them in there

    You could get a condensing dryer if money allows.

    No, the one I've seen advertised is more of a water-filled box to condense the steam and trap the lint. FuzzyOne scores 10pt with Betterware.

    But Amazon review not so hot.

    Duct the dryer directly onto the extractor fan unit, just don't turn on the fan and the dryer will blow the stuff out?

    Hi guys, I doesn't have a exhaust pipe/tube/duct/thing.
    The heat escapes from the front.

    This is the only thing I could find, but it may give you an idea of what I'm dealing with - link

    edit - oh and it's a creda compact reversair sensadry system
