    How we doing guys got one 600w hps running just now but hope to have 3 up , but room is getting hot with just one I have to fans on as well as carbon filter only thing is there is only one small window in the room which has been boarded up except a small circle I cut for the outlet for the filter but it’s still hot , thinking of just putting a tent in the room would this be better to control the heat ?

    You need to get air in from somewhere mate and is your extraction big enough for your space ?

    If your in hot temps already, a tent wont help, you need more air movement and more extraction fans

    Thinking of a tent so I can use the only window to draw cold air into the tent and hot air into the room the filter is big enough just the lack of ventilation options

    Sounds like a plan Lol I’ll give it a go it’s cold here so would cool the room down quite a bit then could I hang my second light up ?

    Worry about controlling your temp with 1 600 watt HPS before you worry about putting up a 2nd and 3rd. You are trying to grow plants. Not burn them.

    You need 3 inline fans. One dedicated to the hood, one dedicated to the scrubber and one dedicated to air intake. 4:1 ratio 4 out 1 in example 400cfm exhaust 100 cfm intake. Make sure you have seperate ducting for each fan. Each item should be its own indepedant system. Run lights at nightime if heat is still an issue. Be sure the exhaust duct is far enough away from your intake duct that hot air doesn't get sucked back into the room. If you have only 1 widow to use place your exhaust duct as far up as you can and put your intake duct as low as you can and it will help a lot.

    Sounds like you might need a more powerful fan.
    Also, you've gotta suck the hot air from the top to make a difference.
    If your carbon filter is sitting on the ground or even waist high, that's your problem.

    82A931FA-F427-4EB3-ACEF-9EFF4C781403.gif Use a high powered fan to exhaust your heat out the hole in the window. That would be most cost effective.

    Do you use a cooltube on your lights? If so, I find the best way to scrub and remove heat is grow room hot air>filter>fan>light>exhaust out of room or house.
