running electrical lines

Hello I was running electrical lines between the joists of my 2 story house and I notice that there was a hot water line running there as well. Should I be concerned if the copper tubing touches the electrical lines or do you think I am just being over precautious. Thanks.

I would do something to keep them from touching. A cold water pipe sweats, and a hot water pipe gets hot, and neither is particularly good for the cable. One way is simply to sleeve the water pipe with those cheap foam things made for that purpose.
