comment Floodlight randomly, dimly lights even when lightswitch is off
@dave even the on/off zwave switches may cause this behavior if they do not use a neureal wire to power their internal electronics.

comment Can I use an outlet splitter with my air conditioner?
@jer for one, wall outlets are slightly overbuilt so they can be on 20amp circuits, and they usually grip the plug better. Also, with each connection you add more resistance, which lowers the voltage causing even higher current draw and more heat. It might work fine forever. Or for awhile then melt. Or start a fire. I dont think its worth the risk when you have other options available.

comment Can I use an outlet splitter with my air conditioner?
@johnny A well built outlet splitter may work fine. The difficulty is finding a well built one - even expensive ones from reputable companies are often crap. I have seen too many melt or have burn marks on them to use them for high power devices anymore.

comment Smoke alarms go off in the middle of the night for no apparent reason and then is fine
And testing means holding something burning under the smoke detector, not just using the button on the device.

comment How many outlets for a small recording studio/media room?
Worst case if you dont want to buy all the breakers until you need them - still run all the wire to junction boxes with blank faceplates. Then you can add them later with no drywall repair needed.
