Installing Gas Dryer in Bathroom

Name: Teresa

City: Livonia

Inquiry Type: Appliance repair question

We recently remodeled and kicked out our first floor bathroom to accommodate our laundry room in northern Michigan.  We currently have an electric dryer but would like to purchase a propane/gas dryer. Is there any reason why we cannot have a gas dryer in a bathroom?

Hi Teresa, 
Thanks for your note. I don't know of any reason why not. Make sure it is vented to the outside. A dryer uses 200 cubic feet of air per minute that goes through the dryer so you may want to leave the bathroom door open while it is operating. Also any sprays or perfumes etc. are drawn into the dryer, so limit that or your clothes will smell.
