Wiring to second floor
Hello everyone. I am hoping someone has some ideas here. We live in an old house with lathe & plaster walls. We need to get an electrical wire up to a second floor bedroom to add more outlets. We found an old direct tv wire (no longer in use) that runs along the outside of the house, it comes into the attic and goes down into the room then outside along the side of the house and down into the basement. Lucky for us the room that needs the outlets is the room that has access to the attic. My question is, is it possible to run the wire outside (replacing the old direct tv wire) or should we try and find an another route inside the house? Just seems to us that this would be the most direct route. We are trying to avoid holes in the plaster walls as they are not easy to repair....well not for us anyway! Thank you!!!
