Ideally I would try to stay under 80.  Fans wont do much in terms of cooling your tent down if the air that you are moving is hot to begin with.  If you really want to cool it down you need AC or next time grow during the cooler time of the year so that the air is cooler....

(example, during the winter the out door temp is about 60-65, so in a 7x7x7 grow tent with a 400w tube and inline fan my tent is usually around 70-76 degrees and my room is usually no warmer than 73)  In my experiences my tent is about 10 to 15 degrees warmer than the air I am pulling in....

Things can work out still so Good luck!

Mine stays in the high 80's in the summer, almost in the 90's some days. Theres nothing I can do, because my grow room is on the second floor of my house (admittedly, not planned out so well.) I'm upgrading to a 400w from 250w soon, and IDK what I'm going to do this summer. I might have to rig something up downstairs...

Anyway, not to thread jack, but since his question is kinda already answered...whats too low? Freezing? Its winter time, and my room stays in the low 60's during the day, and I can't help but think its in the 50's during lights out...I'm hoping it will purple up my buds, but at the same time, I don't want to be harming them.

Of course it's happening inside your head.
Why should that mean it isn't real?

Unless you are growing in extreme conditions or outside, your grow tent (with no fans running) should only experience about a  15  degree drop in temperature.  To see how cold your grow room is getting buy a digital thermometer (like only 20$) that tells you a max and min temperature (link).  This will tell you the hottest and coldest temps your room is getting.

If your grow room is reaching 50 degrees I would say that is a bit cold and will most likely slow growth and flowering.  However I do not believe you have to worry about your plant dieing....pot is a strong plant.

ya i guess ,with my room up stairs to that dont help and the heat from the wood stove go,s up there and im going to rig something up better then i got to stop the heat from get up there.
got a new fan today and the room is now 82 that seems manageable for now ,but im worried when i put the side panel on to keep the light contained  the temp will rise ,we,ll figger it out im sure ,im thinking next summer i will have to dig the basement out and put the room down there ~

if its a room you dont use often, nailing a few thick blanekts up in the doorway really works to keep heat out. we have a fireplace that sends all the heat directly up there. it used to be my bedroom and i found thats the only thing that keeps the heat out.

works wonders for the smell too!

right on ,i got a blanket over the stair way door leading upstairs but im going to try putting one on the room door as well , i was thinking of putting a intake to suck in the cold winter air from outside but i really dont want to be cutting holes in the wall ,i mean thats last resort ,but with my new fan thing seem to be ok for now~
