comment Replacing 240V outlet with 120V
you'll have 120V/60Hz as output from the converter (only very sophisticated ones will also change the frequency). For a warmer frequency is usually not a problem (pure resistor heating element with a thermo-couple). Timers would have an issue.

comment Replacing 240V outlet with 120V
It's easier to shop around for a 220 to 110 converter. (make sure it's rated for it)

Sounds like the vent stack is plugged

comment How many 240 volt fluorescent fixtures can I connect to a 30 amp breaker?
fluorescent are more power hungry on startup so add a good safety margin to that

comment Why are GFCI systems typically in the receptacle instead of in the breaker?
There are jurisdiction where a house-wide GFCI breaker is mandatory (with a separate more sensitive GFCI for the "wet" rooms)

comment What is the grey wire dangling from my ceiling?
see if you can acquire/borrow a better voltage tester. Most DIY shops should have one.

The top holes in the corners are the ones you definitely want to attach with at least.

It's also illegal in many places precisely because it's so dangerous.

comment why does my power keep going out to most of my house?
Get an electrician to find the issue, it could be anything from a faulty breaker to a short-circuit hidden in a wall. Not much we can do to help without more info.

comment How do I make ground connections at my receptacle boxes?
run a ground from the main panel to each box parallel to the each of the existing wires. If the 12-2 has a ground wire (yellow jacket or bare copper) use that.

comment Correct gauge of wire to power 2 ceiling lightnings
@Marty The 450/720V only refers to voltage, Denmark uses 220V I believe. According to a spec sheet I found it can easily carry more than 10 Amps (the rating of the breaker protecting it) which is 2200 Watts.
