Thank You. I was told it was taboo to run insulated wire in conduit due to the fact it could overheat and start fire. Maybe I'm wrong.

That depends on the type of wire used, the length of the run and the voltage/amperage it will be carrying. ABYC has very specific tables that address that question. There are no problems necessarily associated with using conduit, you just have to use the proper cable for the job and the specifications of the situation.
