cfl heat vs HID
im running about 300 wats of cfls in my cab im wondering would a 250 or 200w hps be that much of a difference in heat, i just putia new set of fans and the temp stays around 75 with the cfl's im guessing HID would generate much more heat but would something like this be doable for about a 1.5'x2' by 3' area or is it overkill

If you are going to invest in HID technology do not go with old shit. CMH, of LEP to a lesser degree imo, is the new cool kid on the block.
I lie on the interweb to make myself feel better irl.
if i had the choice i would go with HPS, ive done a bit of reading,and after i harvest my 1st plant im either going to move to a 70w hps or 150w if i can get one.
the more i think about adding a HPS to my small case the better it seems, cos it wont take up as much room and would be easier to cool cos they are smaller...(easy to make a cooltube) but with CFL lights they take up lots of room....
i dont think there has been enough LED grows to interest me yet
The hps will produce significantly more heat, that's why people use cfls to begin with. The best tradeoff between heat and light intensity is T5 Ho, cooler than cfls and midway between cfls and hps in intensity.
