Running 120v and 230v Wires Next to Each Other


I am adding 3 new receps to my garage. I am also running wire for a 230 volt a/c which is all the way around the room from the electrical panel...

I have carefully cut and removed bottom portions of the sheetrock to allow access to the studs so I can thread the wire around the room.

Is it ok to run both wires through the same holes right next to each other?

I have drilled 13/16 holes to accommodate both but got to thinking that this may be a no-no

Any advice on this matter?

Jeff

120 and 240 volt wiring certainly can be run next to each other. This is a very common practice. Absolutely no issues whatsoever.

They can (and usually are) run together in the same holes bored in the studs.
