exchanged heat out of it. No problem. use the condensation on a screen
as a lint after filter. I used to get lots of lint in my garage even though
there was an in dryer filter. I had to sweep and vaccum it up before

My folks had a sink next to their washer/dryer. They ran the dryer

a drain, use a large bucket or tub to catch the the moisture. Instant
heat capture, moisture collection, and lint filter.
