The only trick to wiring is making sure that you have adequate protection for your wire, and safety for yourself.

That is where the dual controller (STC-1000) would come into play. But yes, if the basement is cool, you should do that. No sense burning kWh if you have a cool area to put it in.

Thanks for the post! This would save me about $160.
