I don't know why you would want this liability. The landlord should be the one drilling holes and looking for the jack. It's not unreasonable to ask for a phone jack in a rented apartment. Call the...

The more I think about it, the more I like the idea of this, even if it is a one time expense. I may put all 4 circuits on arc fault as a little added insurance since I did the work myself. Is there...

So both the neutral and ground wires are just tied together (neutral to neutral and ground to ground) and bypass the thermostat? In that case the screw marked "b" on the thermostat would go unused?...

I have a 12 x 25 living room and I put 8 in there. I don't think I could get by with 6, it would be too dull. 8 seems like the minimum for my taste.

If you are going to bust out the floor anyway, then yes I would definitely do it. Pretty cheap insurance if the floor is being removed already.
