Question about Heating & Cooling
Wow - You're looking at quite the job!! The wire needs to be protected inside the walls or at the least inside conduit along the outside of the house - but that wouldn't be too pretty. I suggest getting yourself an Electricians fishtape ( if you don't already have one ) and choose a point either inside a closet or in a visually hidden location you can drill through the floors and the walls to fish your romex through. If all walls are sheetrock, you may have to literally cut a channel into the wall ( use a good metal detector to find existing electric and plumbing so you can miss those ) , bury the wire, and backfill with plaster or sheetrock mud. Either way, have patience - it is a long road you're going down. The easiest way ( not the prettiest, or necessarily legal in your area ) is to run some conduit vertically along the outside of the building and fish your wire into it. Get some wiresnot to help reduce friction and simplify the pulling of the wire in the conduit.Punch your hole through the basement and attic walls and make sure you seal those holes real good with silicone. Check first with your local city and or county building code enforcement office for the legality of externally mounted conduit / wire.
Hope this helps!
