does gas clothes dryer vent have to be vented to the is only vented to a water lent trap behind dryer is this safe and ok.


Dear Randy:

Yes, a gas dryer should ABSOLUTELY be vented to the outside of your home.

Gas clothes dryers do not have separate flues for the byproducts of the burnt gas. These dangerous by-products of gas burning (carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, etc.) come out through the dryer vent.

And as such, you need to be sure that your dryer vent exits your home, and that there are no leaks in your vent ducting.

Hope this is helpful.
