Re: Condenser near dryer vent
About a foot from the house I'd install a deflector that will redirect the vent to the sides, thus preventing the hot air blast and lint build-up on the condenser.
As to the lint, a little bit is normal, and will generally disappear into the environment. If you're getting build up, then I'd make sure that the lint filter in the dryer is being cleaned after each use and being reinstalled properly.
I suffer from CDO ... Its like OCD, but in alphabetical order, LIKE IT SHOULD BE!!!
