But cowboy, Cervantes says ahahahaha,,,,,kidding ; !)
I have always heard and sounds good to me is a 15f degree drop in temps during lights out is ideal. I have to run my dehumidifier at night too during lights out these days and it keeps the flower room hotter than I would like. That shoudn't last too much longer though.
Oh yea, I would definitely try to keep them +/- 15f
Just because they tolerate it and don't die doesn't mean they don't stress especially when those temps are sustained. Depending on the humidity in the ambient air he could throw an evaporative cooler in and drop it maybe 10-15 degrees and raise the humidity some as this increases heat tolerance also. Silicate supplement helps with heat tolerance also if he isn't already using something like that.
** also more air, can't have too much air below and above the canopy for natural transpiration. I don't know if you have ever seen this but the leaves will actually sweat.

my plants on the other hand are sitting at a nice cool 77F with the lights on!!!
Really it seems like your compensating in the right ways, I think that the swamp would be best for raising the humidity but I know they are limited in their cooling capacity. Ex-plumber
If your in the desert and your humidity is 20-35% you have plenty of room for it, in the tropical areas it is indigenous to you figure the temps are high too but there is often a compensating high relative humidity. Hot and wet! Some strains like hot and dry, and that might be a HUGE consideration for summer time! That is where origin can play a role.
I haven't had my panels replaced yet but the one that was broken was able to be temporarily fixed. all the fan mounts are busted in half, but i snapped it back into place and it only falls out of place when it is tilted. also there was a loose connection on a connector that may have vibrated out of place during shipment. so with the help of a couple very kind GLH specialists, I now have another 100W to shine down on my girls!!!! shouldn't be long till i have the new ones!! I can't believe i didn't do this before!!!
looks great bro, glad you got the extra light working..
