comment Determining my house maximum safe watt drawer?
Not familiar with the normal setup there. Picture might improve the question, though local knowledge would be the best input. IF the power delivery is similar to the US model (but no real reason to think it is) you might have 200V at 50 A split into two legs of 100V, so you'd have 10Kw available.

comment Secondary heat source
Better heat pump (cold climate type mini-splits.) But seriously, far more detail is needed for any reasonable answer.

comment Can a dryer exhaust through PVC in a slab?
Once it's in the slab, the fire concern (which is why it's supposed to be metal) is pretty minimal - the pipe & lint could burn, but the concrete won't. If you can get a cleaning snake/brush through it for the lint, and change the part above the slab on the inside to metal, I'd have little concern about using it. I would use a normal dryer vent termination with "flappers" - in my experience even a coarse screen that will stop no bugs becomes blocked with lint (this despite the fine-mesh lint trap at the dryer.)

comment Circuit breakers trip after power comes back on
If you'd bother to share what particular circuits with what particular items on them are tripping, a better guess might be made.

comment Sump Pump runs several times a day every day rain or shine
Depends on the terrain. If there is a slope, to an area lower than the sump pit, you can dig trench out to daylight and stop pumping, If not, you're stuck with it. Note that a trench typically costs a good deal more than a sump pump; but it sure is cheap to operate, and runs during power outages.
