Does the NEC allow electrical wiring to run next to a ventilation duct?
My house has recently been converted to 200-amp electrical service, and I would love to run some new wire to take advantage of that fact. My house was converted from forced air to hot-water baseboard heating. My question is: can I run electrical wire through the old heating ducts to save myself quite a bit of hassle? What if there are hot water pipes in them? Is it advisable to/must I use conduit, or would Romex suffice?
