growroom planning
    #122794 - 09/16/08 01:13 AM (8 years, 2 months ago)

Hello again.  I've since modified my growroom design and need some advice on the best/cheapest way to set it up. My basic design consists of a walk-in closet that is 7' high and measures 5.5' x 5.5'.  I plan on having a 1000 watt switchable in the room and am having trouble working out the ventilation. Will a strong enough fan be able to pull air through the carbon filter and exhaust creating a negative air environment or would I need 2 separate fans; one for exhaust, one for intake?  What would be the best way to set this up for sufficient air flow and cooling? 

If it helps this is the light I am purchasing.

I'm also curious if anyone knows the average increase in the power bill from a 1000 watt light running 18/6 or 12/12.

When I did a closet for a friend we just hooked upthe fan to the light and used it as the intake. The fan didn't have a problem handling the job. Just be sure you have a way for the air to get into the closet but putting another fan most likely won't be needed if set up right.

Well lets do the math :smile:. Light bulbs are rated in Watts per hour (I believe). So you're 1000W light will use....1000 W an hour! Which means that in one hour you will use 1kW. So now you look at past bills. Say you're charged .08/kW hr. So if you run your lights at 18 hours for 3 weeks + 12 hours for another 3 weeks = 378 + 252 = 630 hrs of light.

So 630 hrs of light means 630kW because of our light which means 630*.08 = $50. Oh and I have to say it...but you just got SCHOOLED! :smile: (My math might be wrong and it would be nicely ironic so......yeah);)

how did he get schooled?  he asked for someone to do the math for him..

"Prohibition will work great injury to the cause of temperance. It is a species of intemperance within itself, for it goes beyond the bounds of reason in that it attempts to control a man's appetite by legislation, and makes a crime out of things that are not crimes. A Prohibition law strikes a blow at the very principles upon which our government was founded." - Abraham Lincoln

right... but the sense of the phrase is that he was wrong somehow?

anyways, Blarg's math is correct.  18/6 will run you about $50-60 a month, 12/12 about $30-40 a month.  the difference will be roughly $20/month.  this all depends on your rates.

I thought the question was how to cool the light, not how much it will cost in utilities.

We left the light open and the fan worked as a light cooler and a exhaust at the same time.
