Do I use 3 wire or 2 wire for my next step?
I am installing recessed lighting in my basement. I want to install 2 switches with each switch controlling half of the lights. I have a 2 wire cable running from my breaker box to a junction box.
Cable will be run from the junction box to my switches. My question is would there be any issue with splicing a 3 wire cable in the junction box with my 2 wire cable currently in place or do I run 2 2 wire cables from the junction box to my switches? All cables involved are 14 gauge.
I don't see any real difference aside from the number of cables entering the box for my switches but I realize that I would have 1 fewer neutral wire if I use the 3 wire scenario.
Any help that can be provided would be appreciated.
