I'm installing brand new shielded Cat6, RG6 Quad and telephone wiring throughout my house. Is there cause for concern when each of these wires needs to come in very close proximity to the electrical wires inside the wall?


For aesthetics (and possibly code), I'm lining the Coax/ Ethernet/ telephone face plates to the receptacle face plates on the wall so these wires have to cross the electrical wires at some point.


I'm not casing any wires together.


Should this be cause for concern? Or is there a way to prevent potential interference?

Try and keep them as far away from power cables as you can. Crossing over power perpendicularly is fine, but parallel runs need to be separated by several inches. The more current the wire carries (think stove/oven, microwave oven, clothes dryer, etc), the further you need to be from it.
