Went to Home Depot yesterday, got a tank ($50, was surprised it was that much), and am going to try and do some installation today, but I'm fairly hungover.
That being said, I'm trying to plan for the bad stuff that could happen (like the air just being way, way too hot to pump in there), and found this little guy:
Gonna run it before I buy that, but I'm thinking that's gonna be a necessity at some point (like the summertime).
All right, lemme go do at least a little bit of work............
I watched the youtube video on that set up twice, and those things are amazing, but you need more than just that $150 exchanger. These systems would only be worth while in my opinion in a set up running 8 1000w lamps. Here is a link to the full set up to run that system, it's fucking expensive.
Looked at the link, but that's for large light systems - I just need it to remove the heat generated by my burner, which should only be running for ~5-10 minutes an hour.

Think that and the $150 exchanger is all I would need.
BTW, made some progress - installed the fan onto the crossbeams, but my headache from this hangover wouldn't let me do anymore.
Now it's just a matter of duct taping the ducting together, and hanging the generator (drill two holes, should take five minutes).
I hear ya on the hangover. I'm in the same boat today.
Yeah, plus I lost about 2K last night playing online poker drunk at 1:00am..............annoying, to say the least.

Made some good progress on the system, here's where I'm at so far - just need to run the ducting from the fan to the tent (five minutes), hook up the tank to the generator, and light the pilot (kinda nervous about that).
After that, just test it out a bit.
Anyways, here's the pics:
cool. I think it will boost your eild without using more power or electricity nice. How is the heat that comes off, also did it end up being a 4 burner or a 1 burner. I am sure you got that gap covered, a little sliding of pipe. What kind of wattage does the co2 burner use?
medical-organic-call me medimorph!
I spell fyne!
Not sure about the heat, not firing it up until tomorrow (Sundays are for football).

As far as the gap goes, I left that on purpose - there needs to be sufficient O2 for the burner to operate, and I'm worried that a fan attached directly to it might not provide enough O2 or could blow hard enough to put the pilot out; therefore, the gap.
And as far as I know, the electrical wattage used by the unit is minimal - gotta be less then 100 watts, probably closer to ~25 (best guess pulled from my ass).
A few things. I had a sentinal co2 generator and chhc1 (they got stolen but..) i was never able to get it setup right. It does produce enormous amounts of heat because it is constantly burning. It also made my plants leaves droop and they wouldnt come back up until i turned it off for a few days. I have no explanation for this.

I noticed you said you needed a heater in your garage so this actually might kill 2 birds with 1 stone.
eat my shorts dude
