There are xxx 17kW clothes dryers in the basement of the facility. These dryers are operated by tenants and run long hours.
We recommend replacing the existing dryers with xxx new natural gas dryers. The dryer room is located close to the boiler room, making it straightforward to run natural gas to the new dryers.
The new dryers have a greater heating capacity, so they will dry clothes more quickly.
Natural gas piping can be run at floor level, concealed behind the dryers. Existing venting locations can be re-used.
Issues and Concerns
Because the new venting will be removing combustion byproducts along with the moist air, the installation must conform with the Natural Gas Installation Code.
