comment What types of electrical outlets are found in a typical home in the USA?
The ground pin was never used as a neutral, ever. Also your description of split-phase is not quite right, and a bit confusing.

@BMitch "220v outlets", aren't used anywhere. 240V receptacles, are used to supply dryers and stoves.

comment Do I really have to fasten interior-wall electrical wire to a stud to keep it from moving?
@BlueRaja-DannyPflughoeft I also offer a money back guarantee on all my answers. So if you kill yourself hanging a poster because of this answer, I'll refund what you paid for the answer ;)

@BlueRaja-DannyPflughoeft Unless you're using a high speed nail gun, the cable should have enough slack to move out of the way when you hang your poster. If you're cutting open the wall or doing anything else that is likely to damage the cable, you've probably already used a stud finder to locate the framing members. Most modern stud finders include a feature for finding electrical lines, so you'll probably already have a good idea that they're there.

@BlueRaja-DannyPflughoeft This is why you make sure you know what's in a wall, before you start nailing/drilling.

comment Can I remove the fresh air supply that is attached next to my furnace?
The black pipe on the water heater is probably exhaust, not intake.

Probably not, but it's nearly impossible for anybody to know for sure without actually coming to your house.

comment How do I seal a 4+ mm gap between skirting board and slate tiles?
If bugs and cold air are coming in through this gap, you have bigger problems. Trim is simply used to cover a junction between two different planes, where a gap or ugliness may exist. Trim should have nothing to do with the seal of a building.
