How to do deal with the current heat??
So I mean it's not bad right now but I'm running a 5,000 btu at least 20 hours a day, I could go larger which I'm probably going to go 10,000 or 24,000 because I will be adding a few more lights which will be producing alot of heat, does the ducts and duct fans reduce/remove alot of the heat? I currently don't have that yet.
yes, yes and yes. I have a 5,000 btu that I run for just my lighting cycles and I could keep my temps way too cold if I wanted too. If you are using a tent, you want to make sure that you are running ducts and fans for intake/out take air. you plants need oxygen! Also, if you have air cooled hoods you might as well take advantage. Think about the small stuff before you drop another couple hundred bucks for an AC!
TIME IS THE THING THAT GIVES LIFE DEFINITION
im running a 10k btw for a 400w light. temps stay at 76.
