comment Wiring light switch with neutral (Z-wave)
That picture doesn't show enough of the wiring to tell. If you want a definitive answer, take a better picture (might have to pop out the third switch) or draw a wiring diagram.

comment After moving stove and rewiring, why don't I get any heat from my stove?
Where are you? What kind of plug/outlet do you have? Look at en.wikipedia.org/wiki/NEMA_connector Do you have a multimeter? Test the voltage between the pins in your outlet.

comment How to wire three-way switches to light fixture with a fan?
The only thing missing is the two wires between the two fan switches. The left screw terminal on the bottom right switch should be connected to the left screw terminal on the switch above it. Ditto for the right screw terminals. (This is the same as the light switches.)

comment Is this patch panel used for phone, security, or data?
You are correct that Gigabit Ethernet requires all 4 pairs. However, 100 Mbit only requires 2 pairs. Thats probably good enough for home use. I'll update my answer. But your statement is literally incorrect: the CAT standards do not specify how to use the wires, only the manufacturing specifications.

Are the lights touching insulation? If so, are the lights rated to be touching insulation?

comment In a multi-gang box, are neutral wires paired with specific hot wires?
your answer doesn't address the question: the dimmers require a neutral, but you don't address how to connect them.

comment Can one-way window film actually be a detriment to my windows?
Which side of the glass are you going to install the film on? And which way is the reflection? If you're installing the film on the outside and reflecting outside, then I don't see how that would heat the gas.
