Hello - I have been researching and researching - and have found very little about this topic (other than many definitions of the two). I am trying to understand if I should go with RISER rated vs PLENUM rated cat 6 for wiring the house for ethernet. I know that both are fire retardent at different levels - with Plenum being the highest rated and designed for the plenum areas of buildings.
However, of course it looks like Plenum is about 3x the cost - and I feel like it could totally be overkill.
Now - my biggest issue is that I do not want to run all of this nice cable and then go to sell the house and the wiring does not pass code and have to pull it all. Plus, I of course want to make sure the solution is safe.
The cabling will pass through a crawl space where there the heat exchanger / hot water heater is located (but the cabling will be run in a fashion that is physically goes nowhere close to these systems - it is a large walk in crawlspace). In no place do I plan on running wiring THROUGH the ventilation systems. Always in other places.
I feel like RISER is probably enough - but anyone that has any input to the subject it would be appreciated.
