Reaching out as I’m having a bit of an issue keeping my humidity up now that I have an exhaust to outside and a fresh air in.
I have a humidfior inside the tent set to high and the plants are just baby’s right now so I know it will be easier when they get larger (2x4 with 4 plants until new tent/light show up in about 20 days)
I’m in Canada so the air is dry and cold in the winter.
I have installed a window vent with 6" intake and 6" exhaust. The room it’s in is not sealed but it’s also not heated by the house furnace, has a baseboard as its an attachment with a sliding barn door.
So I set the baseboard to 18 (so plants ideally don’t get to cold and die) along with I haven’t ran vent hose from my intake right into the tent instead it just runs into the room so it warms up a bit and then gets sucked into the tent.
Temps are great with a low of 17/18 and a high of 21 as my exhaust (to outside the house) is running on its lowest setting.
I can’t seem to keep the humidity up though, I assume that the exhaust is just sucking my humidity outside. Temps are low, I could let them climb a little. so I’m thinking that if there is a controller out there that monitors both humidity and temp kicking my exhaust on when one or the other gets to high would be ideal to fix said issue currently…no?
As the winter progresses it’s going to get alot colder we are just hitting below freezing at night now so that’s why I don’t really think plumming the intake right into the tent is a good idea, I need some way to raise my intake temp before it hits the tent not sure how this is going to work all winter but giving it a go and open to suggestions.
My new tent I’m looking at outfitting with an AC infinity that monitors both humidity and temp.
I found a controller for my old fan but it’s half the price of the infinity… So does anyone have any better links or ideas? Otherwise I’m thinking about just pulling the old fan out and replacing it with an AC infinity. Only down side is I know it’s going to be next to impossible to sell the old duct fan
