    Dryer venting thru garage floor

    The cyclone 4005 has washer hookup at dead center of garage front wall with no way to vent dryer to either side wall.
    My unit is in permanent location so Iím wondering if venting down thru floor is ok? Could put elbow underneath and run vent to street side.

    Any opions pro pro or con would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks

    The dryer vent in every house I have ever owned vented down and then out through the crawlspace. Check the owners manual on yours for any such restrictions.

    You will get a bunch of humidity if you vent other than outside.

    This is what I found on the Splendide web site in the way of instructions:

    Additional clearances for wall, doorand floor moldings may be required.

    This indicates to me that it is okay to go down.

    You should be ok as long as you are not directly above a fuel cell/tank.

    Dryer came today and washer on Monday.

    Just noticed that washer/dryer outlet only has one female receptacle. Huh?
    why, where you supposed to plug in dryer and washer?

    Guess Heartlandís pushing for combination units.

    Does anyone See any reason I canít add multiple outlet adapter

    First check the circuit breaker to see if it's 15 amp or 20 amp. To run both machines at the same time, you'll probably need 20 amp. It's possible that Heartland designed this model/floorplan for a combo unit that works on 15 amps.

    They only installed a single outlet in the Road Warrior garage too.
