Air to Air Heat Exchangers
    #684710 - 09/09/13 10:07 PM (3 years, 5 months ago)

What's happenin growerites.
Winter is right around the corner... Hurray for lower humidity levels and cooler ambient temps!! :whoo:

One problem for me though. My ductless ac will not run this winter once temps dip below freezing. I've got to figure out a way to cool my grow this winter. I'm not interested in buying anymore portable air conditioners. They're such a waste of money. I figure if I'm gonna invest another $500-$1000 to cool my grows in the winter I might as well look into something like this.

Air to Air Heat Exchanger

or am i better off saving the money and using a lung room? which i could do. I'm just concerned about running into trouble venting in air that may be -10 F or even lower. I guess a thermostat hooked up to the inline intake fan would keep the lung room temp from dropping too low.

any growers in cold climates ever come across this dilema?

I live on the east coast and I have not dealt with the cold winter of new England yet with a grow room so I will have to figure it out my self.

I ran 4k and did just fine with a 12,000 btu portable ac....until mid april.  Hopefully you can get by with a small ac or none at all :gethigh:

I'm gonna try the lung room first. The only thing that sketches me out is my furnace is in the space I'll be drawing the cold air into. I'll have to do some research and see how that's gonna affect my furnace.
