comment How to seal between sill plate and foundation wall with wide gap?
Is this a poured, or block foundation? Based on the existence of the mortar, I'd guess it's a block foundation.

How does the flame look? Is it nice and blue, or more orange/yellow?

comment List of home automation systems?
This question has the same problem, in that the products will change over time. Which means the answer must also change. This is not a good fit to the format of the site.

It could also be that the sensor is positioned incorrectly. It may be designed to be slightly back from the flames, not directly in the flame (contact the manufacturer, or refer to the documentation).

The dryer should not be spewing lint into the house, so I wouldn't suspect that's the cause. More likely, your gas is not burning as efficiently as it should, and is producing more soot than normal. Is there a drip leg on the gas line, near where it enters the furnace? Does the furnace have an adequate source of combustion air? You could also try contacting an HVAC company, or your utility to check for excess moisture in the gas supply.

It seems to me that this list will change over time, and would be difficult; if not impossible, to maintain in this format.

comment How to waterproof metalic electrical conduit entrance in concrete wall?
Is the water coming around the conduit, or through it? If it's coming in around the conduit, duct seal should work. If it's coming through the conduit, duct seal might work. You'll have to clean up the conduit a bit, to get seal.

comment I am wondering can I add a new electrical connection for a gas range to this line?
Why wouldn't a GFCI protected circuit provide an adequate ground path? I also don't understand how 210.52 (B)(2) fits in this situation.
