Running Conduit on Outside of House

When running wires from the electrical panel to the outside of the house, you need to consider what type of conduit you’ll use. While there are some types of cable that don’t require a conduit, it’s best to protect the exposed part. You can use a gray, schedule 40 PVC conduit that’s rated for sunlight resistance. It will also identify the electrical cable as it comes through the outside wall. And you can buy many different sizes and fittings for this type of cable.
