Moving thermostat wiring alongside electrical wiring

I want to move a thermostat to a different wall in the same room. I can run the wiring up through the wall through an existing hole for wires for a light switch and electrical outlet. Is there any problem with electromagnetic fields that will interfere with the proper operation of the thermostat and HVAC system if I run these wires in such close proximity?

tstat wire

It wont hurt the tstat or it's relays at all. Make sure you write down the color code there. You cant have the 24 volt wire in any box that has 110V. Like to ask how long has that hole been there?????. This could have messed up the tstat there. When your done with this new wire and on the other wall. Go back and fill all holes like that with a can of insulating foam . this will stop any draft up in the wall with the tstat OK ED
