Hello, this is going to be my first grow. I will be growing 6 plants in a 10x5 tent.
But the question i have is regarding the AC to keep my temps down.
Ive been reading temps and humidity past couple days WITHOUT lights or anything growing inside.
It is hot out here in California.
My low/high temp wise is 72F/90F, and my humidity low/high is 24rH/36rH INSIDE the tent.
I know when i have lights and other stuff on and also plants growing in the tent, these numbers will be way higher.
I’m wanting to get a 12000BTU portable AC unit/Dehumidifier.
My question is if i should be cooling the whole room that the tent is in down, so that the tent will intake this cooler air, and exhausting to outside through the window, or if i should be cooling the tent itself and exhausting it into the room.
My concern is if i exhaust into the room, would that not be counterproductive as my intake fans will be intaking this warmer air that the ac is exhausting into the room.
Or that if im cooling the whole room the tent is in down, will it be enough to cool down the temps inside the tent with the cooler air it is intaking.
Another note, my exhaust fan for the tent is exhausting into the room, and with the way stuff is set up, im not sure if ill be able to also vent that to the outside.
If anyone can help me and give me some insight that would be greatly appreciated, thank you.
