    Default A/c piping in electrical chase

    Is a/c refrigeration piping allowed in an electrical chase. Can any one offer a code cite for this?

    thanks!

    Allen,

    I know of no issue with what you have pictured. As long as the chase is not "conduit" designed specifically to shield conductors from damage, then a chase is a chase. If there were issues, then you couldn't have HVAC lines and electrical conductors in the attic (a really big chase) nor could you have the HVAC lines and electric together in the plenums in commercial construction.

    Is it just me, or do others also remember other posts which were posted to this. I am sure that I post one.
