comment 1“ x 2” Furring Strips for Drywall Ceiling
Cool, thanks again. I realized that existing furring strips are 12" on center, so my thought, too, is those two extra furring strips per eight foot sheet will give a little extra support.

comment 1“ x 2” Furring Strips for Drywall Ceiling
Thanks guys, appreciate the comments. Regarding drywall glue, is the idea to get a good strip of adhesive on those furring strips, and then screw them in as well to make sure there's a good solid anchor on the ceiling?

@mikes - I actually didn't measure the joist spacing specifically as the furring strips allow for some wires and one small copper pipe to cross, hence I figured I would leave the furring strips in place.

comment Replacing Oil Furnace with Heat Pump
@bcworkz: Sorry, I should have been more clear. We would replace the outside unit with a heat pump, and on the inside have a heat kit installed to support the heat pump during extreme cold.

comment What does the inspector mean by “Hot and Neutral are not separated”?
Yes, this is a sub-panel. If my memory serves me correct, the black and red are attached to the main panel.

It's a sub-panel, and I am in the US (Maryland to be specific).

comment Is there a name for a duplex outlet that takes eight wires, plus ground?
@Paul: The connecting tab on the hot side and neutral side are both intact. I added pics of both. I retook the front image, and it is sharper. I do not see any names or logos aside from the UL and CSA logos, and the 125v/15a max text. On the back, I see "CU" in a circle and "AL" in a circle with a slash through it. Additionally on the back, I see "NOM 057". Those are all stamped in the metal on the bottom side. On the top side, stamped in the metal as well, I see "LEVITON MEXICO, CU AND CU LLAD WIRE ONLY". So, it is indeed made by Leviton.

Hi everyone, thanks for the responses! To clear up a few things: no the box is not bigger than a standard box, though I feel it should be. I don't know the exact dimensions, but it is way to crowded. I plan on swapping that out. I will check on the name and logo - sorry about the blurryness! While I'm thinking about it - if I swap the box to a double gang, and have two duplex outlets in it, would that mess up any of the circuit? I figure if I am adding a bigger box, I might as well add the second duplex outlet (if that works/is safe)
