I am running power and a ceiling fan to a gazboo built on the side of a deck. Looking in the code book I see I could use NMC to run in a damp location, running under the joist of the deck. However, I can not find out anything about NMC. My supplier can not find it listed in he southwire book. Does anyone have any info on NMC and where I might find it. I don't want to run pvc all the way, but if I must I will.
Thanks

Why not UF cable?

Yeah, UF would seem the way to go if you don't want to use PVC.

Is the ceiling fan rated for damp locations?

APPLICATIONS


Southwire Type UF-B cable is generally used as feeder to outside post lamps, pumps, and other loads or apparatus fed from a distribution point in an existing building as specified in the National Electrical Code1. UF-B cable may be used underground, including direct burial. Multiple conductor UF-B cable may be used for interior branch circuit wiring in residential or agricultural buildings at conductor temperatures not to exceed 90°C (with ampacity limited to that for 60°C conductors) as specified by the National Electrical Code. UF-B can be used in applications permitted for NMC in Section 334.10(B) of the National Electrical Code. Voltage rating for UF-B cable is 600 volts.
