OK, how about this scenario....

having the same dificulties as everyone else onthis thread, I checked around my basement to see if any of the supplied suggestions might work for me.

The only spot I can run a PVC conduit from Basement to (well, almost to) the Attic is alongside a forced air heating duct.

Is this acceptable? Are there code issues with this idea?

Power cable is the wire that carries your 110v or 220v ac line. Anything else like phone, cable tv, cat5 is data cable and can not go in the same conduit as power wires.

I guess my question is....

Is it acceptable to run the conduit containing power cable(s) alongside the heating duct?
