Code for low voltage runs through PVC in attic
 
Hello,
Thanks for reading my post.

I am running cat5 and RG6 to all the bedrooms through the attic. I want the job to look nice plus I want the cabling to be safe from anyone who may be in the attic. My largest concern is if I sell the house someday soon, will the inspector tell me no pcv is allowed in homes...I am in Westchester county, New York. I am not in
White Plains or New Rochelle which I know have code deviations.

Any direction or knowledge of code in this area would be much appreciated.

Thanks,
Camel

There is no particular NEC, other than making sure that it is Plenum rated. I would check with your local AHJ to see what their say is on running low volt wires through PVC in a attic space. Usually EMT or Schedule 40, or just the wires in a bundle are pulled up through walls, not with regular PVC.
