Hi John,

A minimum of 3' is required from the regulator on a gas meter or opening on an intake.

Thank you

If the dryer is electric, there is no distance. If it is a gas dryer, there are distances of 1.5 meters that must be respected due to CO, CO2 gases that could be pulled back into the home. If it is only a gas meter without air intake, there is no trouble.
