Pulling wire in the walls

Page 2 of 2  


Call a recycler and ask how much they're paying per pound for clean copper wire.
12ga copper is about 0.02 pounds per foot. Do the math.

The simple answer is to leave the old wire in place but disconnected at each end. And if you are being kind to someone who comes after you then both ends can be labeled neatly. Then you run new wire in the easiest way which is safe and code-compliant.
If you are dealing with an unfinished basement then coming up from there has always seemed the easiest way to manage outlets to me. An unfinished attic has always seemed easiest for ceiling fixtures.
