So a little frustrated here. Trying to take a smoke a bowl and chill until the solution presents it self, but thought I’d ask the experts as a back up plan.
Brand new set up in a finished attic space. The attic has a vent open to outside where I run my exhaust duct and also a small window. I was worried it would be too cold so I insulated the vent and windows, but once I hooked up the lights I had a heat problem…up in the 80’s. So I took the insulation off and I bought a portable AC unit. 8000 BTUs. Good for 10x10 space. And still can’t get below 75F with all 3 lights on. I have the AC unit exhaust venting outside the tent into the attic space so I know I should duct to outside and will.
But running AC and everything… the tent is under negative pressure and won’t get into the 60’s.
Any help would be appreciated.
- 5x5x5 tent
- 6 inch exhaust fan in canopy
- 3 x 260 xl HLG lights
- AC 8000 BTUs
- 2 small oscillating fans at 2.5ft height
- small humidifier on the floor
- Small heater outside the tent no using.
- one tent vent. Other one closed
Outside temp gets in low 50’s in San Diego
Attic temp 60-72F
Tent temp with everything running I can t get lower than 75F
Tent humidity is 40 tops
