One week of temp logger data and a room insulation/air-turnover calculation.

RE: humidity in laundry room

depends on what conditions you need/want to have in there.

All the air being exhausted by dryers, comes in from somewhere. either from adjacent conditioned spaces, or outside. If from adjacent space, that adds a load to that space since it will draw air from outside. With estimated dryer runtimeyou shoudl be able to easily calculate.

but if you draw from adjacent conditioned spaces, you may not need to do anything since that is all dry air coming into the dryer room.

RE: humidity in laundry room

If you are drawing from adjacent conditioned spaces, treat each dryer as if it were an exhaust fan , and review your incoming air accordingly.

You are judged not by what you know, but by what you can do.

See my post on dryer exhaust in your latest post.
