That's a good idea to put it in conduit, if there's any worry.
It's certainly a very safe way to do it.

The thing about noise is that the twisting is 95% of the noise rejection,

to do the sealing and finish work to seal up the floor and get a wood stove...

Yup, this is certainly one of those- it started as 'yeah, I want a pad in the barn'
and is currently at 'yeah, NOW I want a pad that I don't use high quality/cost energy to heat'.
