Flooded Battery Bank Placement
My bank is 5 (12V) batteries in parallel. I am setting up the system now and was planning to put these in the garage floor (attached garage) due to off gassing, however all my equipment is on the basement wall (next to the service panel) and I'd like your opinion of placing the batteries in the basement as well. Wire length is not an issue either way because charge controller and inverter (on basement wall) are only 2-3ft from where the batteries are in the garage (floor). My concern with basement was the gassing during charges. This basement room is about 15' x 27' not really ventilated, but it does have the nat gas furnace and water heater. My solar equipment and furnance are about 20 ft apart. Garage is less secure and is subject to temperature fluctuations between 35 - 95 degrees depending on the season. Basement or garage folks?!?!
