How to Install Surface-Mounted Wiring and Conduit

Also, does outdoor electrical wire need to be in conduit? You can run electrical wire outside to nearly any location. Although some types of electrical cable do not have to be enclosed in conduit for outside installation, enclosing any exposed cable is a good idea. Schedule 40 polyvinyl chloride (PVC) conduit for electricity is gray and is rated for sunlight resistance.
Then, how do I run electricity to my shed?
Run 14-2 NM wires throughout the shed and tie them through electrical wire boxes. Attach any desired fixtures in the shed or on outside and run wire as needed. Tie in 14-2 NM wires from fixtures and receptacles into sub panel breakers as needed. Turn off the electricity inside the home at the main breaker panel.
What type of wire can be run in conduit?
The most common type of cable used in home wiring is non-metallic (NM), or Romex, cable. While NM cable can be run inside conduit, this is seldom done. The types of wire most commonly installed inside of conduit are THHN and THWN. THHN/THWN wires are individual, insulated, and color-coded wires.
