i would just enclose the room...your lighting puts off a ton of heat

youll probably find out you have trouble moving the hot air from the room

It depends on how cold the room gets at night, if it's dropping to 60 or below thats not good, if it's gonna drop more than 15 degrees from when your lights are on, thats not good either.


Depending on that, it may be best to insulate and setup some good ventilation, because the insulation will keep your room from getting too cold, but it will also hold the heat in while your lights are on.

Another way to combat this (if your lights are on during the daytime) is run them at night, that is if during the day you wont have light leaks.
