The best solution depending on your local electricity and natural gas prices is a clothes line for the summer and an electric dryer with one of these for the winter.
Surprisingly I just got mine today and just hooked it up with mesh filter on the staight end out of the laundry room to just below the central air pickup, and it worked great. I didn't have any lent problems and the water all evaporated pretty well.
Clothes lines are cool but even in the summer i have to dry them for the last 20 minutes in the dryer or they look and smell bad. In the winter clothes lines just don't work.
Suprisingly for me the diverter with the electric dryer comes out just ever so slightly cheaper than a natural gas dryer here since the unit price on natty vs electric is a lot cheaper.
Cool part though is im saving money and i have also solved my total home humidity problem in the winter lol. I usually get a 20% rise in humidty to around 50% when i do laundry. lol
