comment What type of dryer best handles long exhaust vents?
A duct booster in a dryer vent sounds like a bad idea to me, since anything in the duct will collect lint and lint buildup can lead to fire.

Searching for the term "Greywater recycling", may be helpful.

comment What type of dryer best handles long exhaust vents?
This question shouldn't be about the dryer (since that's a shopping question, and off topic), it should be about how to improve the exhaust line so that any dryer can be attached to it.

comment Can I put an AFCI receptacle on a branch circuit that shares a neutral with another branch circuit?
The type of circuit you're talking about, is a multiwire branch circuit. It can indeed use two single pole breakers as the disconnecting means, as long as the breakers are connected using identified handle ties or a master handle (NEC 2008 225.33(B)). However, this would not be an option when dealing with AFCI or GFCI breakers.

comment How do you weatherproof a light switch?
@JayBazuzi If I recall correctly (which I may not), these boxes usually come with plugs to fill the unused openings. If not, you can probably grab a bag/box of them for a couple bucks.

Not sure what rates/availability are like where you are, but looking into natural gas might be worth the effort.
