I’m setting up for my second harvest ever. I upgraded my tent to a 4x4 Gorilla Shorty with extension. I cant get my temps less than 84 with the lights on. My temps before were 77-78 in a 2x4 with single 300 Rspec. Same fans and location.
Room: Closet 5x10ish Ambient starting 73F
Tent: Gorilla 4x4 Shorty with extension
Lights: Two 200 HLG 300 Rspec & one UVA bar.
Intake Fan: AC Infinity Raxial S6. Normally pulls from floor next to tent. Moved intake to next room which was also 73F. Didn’t help.
Exhaust Fan: AC Infinity T6 with carbon filter. Approx. 25 feet of ducting to window
Circulation Fans: Lasko 42in Tower Fan. Two 6 inch desk fans.
Tent temps reach 84-86 at full power. Ambient room in closet climbs to 75. Just having the doors open for these pics, the tent temp dropped to 80 within 1 minute. Would an 8 inch exhaust fan fix this or do I need a portable air conditioner? The house AC really doesnt reach this area well but temps are typically 71-73 in the closet with the lights off. In the past, I’ve tried an oscillating fan moving air out of the closet but it doesnt seem to help at these higher temps. These temps are stable regardless of time of day.
Any assistance or suggestions are greatly appreciated!
