CFL lighting Q>?
    #474713 - 09/09/10 07:57 PM (6 years, 2 months ago)

ok so i just finally got all the lights set up in my box and now i am wondering, i got all togather wattage of 252 watts, 8 26 watt 100 watt equ, and 2 of the 42 watt 150 watt equ, is this too much for 1 plug? everything was rated for up to 600 watts.

any eletric info would be appreacated cous im noob to it.
o yea it is on my clothes washer am witch is a 20 amp.

will this suffice or burn tha place down?

Provided your electrical is properly grounded and you aren't running some crappy/long extension cord, 252 watts on a single circuit is no sweat.  Hair dryers, irons and microwaves will easily use three to six times that much power!  Make sure your all your lights are secured well enough and won't come into contact with any flammable material or water and you should be all set.

Looks good man.  I like how you have them horizontal, and with great even coverage.  You should be able to pull off a better run this time.  More light = Bushier sexier plants.

How do you ventilate/circulate air and what is your lights on temp?

i dont have good ventilation yet cos i am looking for a small circular saw from a friend to cut the hole in the side to put that fan as an intake and i have another for the exhaust. so what i am doing is that side that the fan is on i crack the door and the fan pulls the cooler air in and circulates the air. the top of my box also comes off atm so i move it to half center on the top to let excess heat escape. for the time being. sucks when all your friends work in mcdees instead of being a tradesmen and you have to sell your own tools to pay for school or bills. temps sat around 80 during the lights on and 70-75 on the off cycle.i had only finished this box the last 2 weeks of my last grow. been so busy with school and reports,homework,brand/generics, and family its hard to get to it all the time. i only have the bottom part painted so far lol i did 1 wall at a time cos it needed 2 coats. it is still a work in progress but they are happy with it.
