14-2-2 versus 14-3
I was just went shopping at my local big box for some cable to run some three-way switches. When I was able to compose myself from the sticker shock I received on ALL the prices, I noticed that they had some "14-2-2" cable for just about the same price as 14-3 cable. My question is this: can this 14-2-2 be used the same as 14-3? It certainly looked the same, except for the color of the insulation, but I couldn't find a box to explain what it is used for.
My thinking was, if I'm going to get a 250' roll of something, might as well get the most versatile material for the price.
