Can anyone help me with this problem? The ducting that vents my dryer to the outside has a long run, about 15 feet, and it runs above my drywalled finshed basement ceiling. A wet spot appeared on the ceiling and it seems that condensation has been dripping from the dryer duct onto the ceiling drywall. This makes sense to me since the outside air that gets back into the vent is -30 these days and the dryer heat going out is very wet, hence condensation and sweating, which is ruining my celing. Does anyone have a solution to this? Thanks.
