Help! Humidity and Temp problem
Hey guys, so I'm running into a humidity/temp problem. I'm into week 2 in flowering and my dehumidifier is running 24/7. The tent is sealed and I have co2 running. The temp is generally 92 I have it set for 35 degrees humidity, yet once it reaches that 35, the dehumidifier doesn't shut off. It also is just blowing out very hot air; the temps generally 84 when I shut it off. I recently went in and saw the temp had reached 100! I noticed it's starting to effect my plants and leaves so I'm looking for a quick fix. Can anyone suggest any dehumidifier that doesn't blow out super hot air, if there's even one out on the market? The one I have now is some $160 dollar one from walmart. Thanks for any help
A dehumidifier won't change the temperature in your grow space. Your humidity is 35% with the dehumidifier running? What's the % when it's off? Perhaps you don't have it set on auto that's why it is constantly running, even with such low humidity.
Also, the dehumidifier is only blowing out "super hot air" because the room it's in is super hot. It's not an air conditioner.
Of course dehumidifiers make heat, I'd set it around 55-60% humidity so it doesnt run so often. That will be ok until the last few weeks when they are more vulnerable to mold and such. At least that will buy you some time. You will then need to find a way to cool it (a/c unit, fresh cool outside air, redirect your central air vent). You may find that with some ventilation you dont need a dehumidifier. I always make temp and humidity a priority over co2 so if you have to vent it out, so be it. Your plants will thank you.
