Water heater in battery room
My new battery room will accommodate my 8 trojan l16re batteries that will be housed in a battery box, and I'd like to include my gas fired water heater. The room is 169 sq. feet. I'm looking into sealed combustion heaters which utilize outside air for combustion - that would be my preference - and I'm thinking that it should be a safe situation. Any thoughts on this?
Also, given the size of the room and if I vent the battery box to the outside would a standard water heater be a potential problem?
