  • cable for switch

    want to extend my boiler switch to the stair for easy access. cannot find cable with only red and black (ground is always there) wires. Just wondering is that ok by using cable with white and black wires instead according to the code? The guy in homedepot told me it is ok but I am not really trust him.
    thanks,

    It's fine. Just re-identify the white wire with a black Sharpie or black electrical tape. NEC 200.7(C)(2) the white conductor has to supply power to the switch. Not as the return conductor. You were right not to trust anything that anyone from Homeboy Depot has to say, by the way.

      Is this a 24V remote type switch? Sounds like the red and black you are looking to run is the red sheathed (at least here in Canada it is) 240V 12-2 electric heater wire

        Thank you Killavolt. I also found the same answer online.
