I just moved into an apartment with a washer dryer inside

Customer Question

Hi, I just moved into an apartment with a washer dryer inside the kitchen, and there's an indoor vent (it doesn't vent outside). Is this legal in NYC?

No it's not legal in NYC or anywhere else for that matter

Should I ask my super to create an outdoor vent?

Expert:  Rick replied 2 years ago.
If you don't you'll dump an awful lot of moisture/water into the apt. All the water that was in your laundry will go into your apartment. Some additional humidity might be ok in the winter but during the rest of the year the dryer can put so much moisture into the air it could literally "rain" inside your apt. I've seen it happen.
