That is a in line blower for the dryer vent they are used when the run of vent pipe is too long to maike to the out side. They are used a lot in 2 or mor story homes with the laundry located in the center of the first floor. I think I attached a picture to show the maximum length without the inline blower. I hope this helps.

Todd...does this mean the dryer is somehow venting into the unit?

No it means that they can have a greater distance between the dryer and the exterior. A vent booster might be a better name for it. Am I right Multi story & dryer located in the middle of the first floor?

The moral of the story is, if you see Todd in an Irish Pub during the convention, stick close.
You'll learn something from him!






Thanks!
