My current grow project will conclude in about 3 weeks to a month or so. It will likely be a while before I start another run. During the downtime I’m going to work on a couple modifications. So;
1). My current intake and exhaust fans do not utilize any carbon filtration. This is fine during the day as my exhaust fan sends grow room air into my rather large attic. However, when the timer shuts everything off and the inside air cools, terpenoid infused air wafts out of the intake tube. Last night I forgot to close the door to room where the grow room is and I woke up to a good amount of cannabis ‘cologne’ all over the house (from only two plants). I don’t want to run the outtake fan 24/7 for fear that it will shorten the life of the fan. I did hear of an interesting solution and wondered if any ILGM forum members do this: Get an inline fan with a carbon filter and run it inside the room, essentially recycling the air in the room through the carbon filter. Anybody know if this idea works? It’s an easy experiment to find out I guess…
2). Shorter question to the above rambling. What experiences do some of you folks have with light proofing a regular closet door? My current solution works but it’s crude and draws attention to the door. I’d like it to look like it’s a regular closet, not a grow closet.
Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
