I am trying to find out the output temperature of a clothes dryer. What I mean is the actual temperature that leaves the dryer through the dryer vent. Please help.

That will depend on the dryer make, design, the heat setting the dryer is on and whether there are wet clothes in it at the time.

On a "low" or "delicate" heat setting, 110-120°F should be expected. On a "medium" setting, 135-145°F. On high, possibly 145-155°F.

Is that the temperature that leaves the dryer through the vent? Or is that the temp inside the dryer?

The reason behind my question is this

the dryer in my home can not be vented into the garage. It must vent outside or into the attic. But to vent into the attic I must have a collector, (too much $$$), or go through the slab with a vent pipe. I can use pvc if the temp that leaves the dryer does not exceed 150F. Please help.

** Is that the temperature that leaves the dryer through the vent? **

Yes. That is how dryer temperature is measured.

** the dryer in my home can not be vented into the garage. **

That would be against building codes.

** It must vent outside or into the attic. **

Venting into an attic is also not recommended... if even allowed by building codes at all.

** I can use pvc if the temp that leaves the dryer does not exceed 150F. **

Under normal circumstances most shouldn't. But if a problem were to occur...

Before deciding on venting, you might want to read the following page (along with the particular dryer's installation instructions).

- How long can my dryer vent be?

Dryers should ideally be vented directly to the outdoors using rigid metal ducting. Many technicians report unusual and premature clogging when PVC venting for a dryer is used. Some suggest some type of electrostatic forces might be being created causing lint to stick to it.
