Outdoor wire ok for indoor use?


I noticed too late that the 250ft roll of 14/2 cable I bought (opened and began using), was rated for exterior use. From the looks of it, it merely has more substantial sheathing, and is gray in color. Otherwise, it appears the same. I did not give it much thought until now, and do not wish to rewire everything.

Again, thanks in advance,

Thank you - just another costly rookie mistake.
