Colonie complains about a hot laundry room. I have 4 washers and 4 dryers in my 4-unit rental. Recently, I have observed the room is extraordinarily hot. There is no heat on this time of the year. The vent is opened. I have never had this problem before. I had my appliance repairman check all the machines and he said they are all working properly and not overheating. Any ideas?

Mac answers: Just one. Disassemble the dryer vents completely. If possible, clean them out. If they are straight galvanized pipe, you may find this not too hard. If they are the flexible corregated type, you might find it easier to replace them completely. Make sure the screen on the outside of the building is clear.
