air intake/duct
    #493504 - 10/30/10 04:55 PM (6 years, 3 months ago)

I was wondering how I should compensate for cold air coming in through duct? I live in a cooler climate where winter temps can easily reach 20f. I only have exhaust right now.

add a space heater and turn it on just enough to keep the temp steady.

i would try to put it on the bottom of the tent(where more of the cold air will be)

Or run in the cold air over your light and then into your room.  As long as that doesn't warm the room up too much.

I'd be scared of condensation on the bulbs, then I'd be scared of broken bulbs. This is just a hunch though.

I have done this for years.  With constant air flow the bulbs are so hot you do not get condensation on bulbs.  I have done this through winter with snowstorms and rain.  I have NEVER had a problem with condensation or bulbs breaking.
