I just bought an apartment built in 1980 and it does not have a washer and dryer. There is a vent above an electric oven. I am remodeling the kitchen and moving the oven to the other side of the kitchen and would like to put a stackable washer dryer in the same place where the oven is. This way I can use the vent for my dryer only. Please let me know if I can do this and if it is safe to do so (and following the safety/state code in California-OC).
It is more important for me (and it increases the market value of my home) to have a washer/dryer than to be worried about the smell of fried onion or garlic once in a while in my home. I would just open the windows instead of having a vent on top of my stove.
Please advise! This is very important improvement for me and makes my life much much easier to have my own washer/dryer in my home.
