temp issues
    #645776 - 11/13/12 06:54 PM (4 years, 3 months ago)

Hello,

I read the "Controlling temperature. What am I doing wrong?" thread, but
did not find what I am looking for...

I have a 4' X 4' Growlab tent with a ducted 600W lamp (MH conversion bulb).



I am running it empty while I wait for supplies to arrive.

I am finding that the temp is getting over 85F.  (today's ambient high was 75F).

What I am wondering is whether I will need to increase the air flowing
*into* the tent.  The output is significant, and is directed toward a
pushing (outward) window fan that I use to keep my room cool in general.

The only thing that I have done to get fresh air into the tent is to
open the small rectangular holes along the bottom of three of the sides
of the tent.

Should this be enough?

I *really* do not want to add the expense of running an AC to the mix,
but will if I have to.

Take care,

JD

85 isn't too horrible.  As long as it doesn't get any higher than that.

How long is the light being left on for it to reach those temps?

I am leaving it on continuously, to learn the temp profile.

This all being said, I just realized the my probe was 6 inches
from the top of the tent.  I pushed more probe cord through so that
the probe is 2' off the floor. 

My gauge is now saying 80F.

Sheesh  :smbfacepalm:

I promise that my future threads will be better.  :0)

Thanks for taking the time.

JD

Put the probe where you think the top of the plants will be.
