can 24 v be run through no 14 or 16 wire

can 24 volts be safely run through no 14 or 16 stranded or solid wire and will it run a new 24 volt thermostat correctly


  • Yes it can but

    you only need 18 gauge. Those you mention are lower resistance and will easily handle 24 volts just a little cumbersome to work with when attaching to the thermostat.
