Our house is very dry in the winter. In fact, My husband and I wake up every morning
with cracks in our nose and on our lips because it is so dry. We run a humidifier
in our bedroom and there is also a humidifier
on the furnice. The furnice, however, seems
to take out the moisture from the air faster than we can put it in. We would like to
vent our clothes dryer to the inside even
though everyone says its a bad idea because
of the moisture problem. We will not have
this problem! My question is to whether or
not the exaust from the dryer is toxic.

Exhaust from a natural gas dryer is potentially dangerous!!!!!!! Products of combustion will vent directly into your home,....Not GOOD! Let's address the moisture problem. Humidifiers on the furnace are a great Idea and they work provided they put out the desired moisture content for a given home. Humidifiers are rated by GPH. (gallons per hour) and there are formulas to acheive the proper output for your home. Bear in mind,....It is alot harder to put the moisture back into your home as it is to remove it via..Ex: Air conditioning. It can take upwards of a month to acheive your comfort level. APRIL AIRE are the industries best in my opinion. Flow through reccomended. Water basen with a float, basically >? Well ****...... Your local HVAC contractor can help you evaluate your humidifier and make reccomendations.
Typically your current humidifier only comes on with the heating speed of you blower motor on your furnace. This can be changed to run whenever the fan is on period! Usually the cycling of the humidifier with the furnace is fine.
Hope this was of help to you.......

Renee, the assumption is that your dryer is a gas dryer, but you didn't actually say. Is it gas or electric?
The output from an electric dryer should be less dangerous than gas, but personally, I still wouldn't want to vent it into the house.
