Feedback needed ASAP:

I'm going through a re-model. My gas dryer now runs straight out the back of the machine into the backyard (12' run). That area is now going to be my room addition. Here are my only choices...which one should I choose?

1. Have the vent run out of the back (12') and then turn at a 90 degree angle and run another 20' out the side of the house (32' run with a sharp turn).

2. Or, have the vent run 1' out of the back and then make a 90 degree turn and vent into the garage where I can set up an internal venting kit (bucket of water) run about 4'.

** My gas dryer ... vent [it] into the garage where I can set up an internal venting kit? **

Since you should not be venting a gas dryer indoors **AT ALL** and venting a dryer into a garage is likely against building codes, I guess #1 is your solution *if whatever make and model of dryer you have is capable of handling that long of vent* (see the following link):

How long can my dryer vent be?

It is also possible to vent the dryer through the roof. Ask the builder doing the remodeling for more info.
