First-time grower. 8 9-gallon RDWC buckets under 4 QB288s and 4 QB648s. 6” inline fan running through 4” duct to adjacent veg room. Passive 12x12 air intake, as well as a passive 6x18 air return from veg room. Water chiller/epicenter/res also in veg room. I managed to move one driver into the veg room but, the driver for the 4 qb288s is still in the grow room (up high, next to carbon filter). Both rooms are covered in silverboard.
Grow room is 250 cu ft. I’ve calculated I’m introducing 507 watts resulting in 1729 BTU/hr heat output. I want to avoid an AC unit due to difficulty venting outdoors (and electric) but could bite the bullet if it was a necessity. I live in a cold climate and the room is in the basement.
Currently the grow room heats to about 95F with the veg room at around 85F. What should I do?!
Also, I’ve heard you can run CO2 at 1500ppm and get good results at 95-degree heat is that true? I’m all about terps.
