  • If you have a GAS dryer, it would emit carbon monoxide, not dioxide, and the carbon monoxide is dangerous. You'd need a vent to get rid of the fumes.

    If you're just talking a vent to vent the air coming from the dryer, the big hose, that's fine. My grandmother used to vent it into their house during the winter to help keep the house warm.

  • An electric dryer doesn't put carbon anywhere. If it is gas, it has to be vented to pass inspection. You don't have a vent from the dryer drum to the outside. All it is putting in the air is humidity and lint.
