How to Install New Wiring in a Older Home

Electrical Question: I am doing a total rewire on a older home. Can I run the wire in the 3′ crawl space instead of crawling around in the attic full of insulation? It is damp as crawl spaces are, but not wet, I would hang the wires on the floor joists. It would be easier than the attic, other than the light circuits would still be in the attic.

This electrical question came from: Reed, a Homeowner from Provo, Washington
