Given you don't want to duct it properly your choices are the larger fan your builder suggested or another drier type. If you go ducted and aren't happy your only solution is to put a duct in.

 

Another thing to remember is a ducted clothes drier pulls air, uses it, then throws it outside. If you don't have a window or fresh air source it's going to be pulling large volumes of heated house air in from the house, increasing your heating bills for when you replace that air.

If you like I have a plugin humidity controller. Will turn the plug on if the humidity goes too high. 25+shipping. I'll get photos for you later on.

Have you looked into washer/dryer combo? One unit to do it all and won’t spit out any moisture into the room. The drying is not as great as seperate dryer but they still work well if you are not a heavy user.

Yep, too late. We've already got a washing machine.

Even with a lint filter the exhaust from the dryer will have a lot of "dust" in it. That won't all get dragged up to the separate vent.

Got the new fan installed today. Works will with a wall mounted vented dryer in a smaller space).
Big difference in the humidity (I can monitor it through a humidity sensor.
Tried it with the old fan and now the new fan.
It will achieve 153 l/s, where the requirement for laundries are 40 l/s (according to the builder).
