Venting intake/exhaust underneath house and into attic
    #686544 - 09/27/13 11:56 PM (3 years, 2 months ago)

So, I'm wondering about venting my passive air intake from underneath the foundation of the house. Has anyone on here had experience with doing that?

I'm also thinking about venting the hot air exhaust into the attic space. What issues am I going to come across when trying to do that?

You will want to monitor the humidity in the attic to avoid developing mold on the timbers and sheathing. You may need to vent the attic. The attic fan could be controlled for temperature and humidity, or run at intervals on a timer.

You will also want to know the temperature and humidity of the air from the crawl space. It won't help to introduce cold or saturated air on your grow.

Actually, it can totally help to introduce cold air into your grow room.  Indoor growers are constantly battling heat issues.


Tank, venting into your attic is just fine.  The only issue I ever saw, which isn't much of an issue, is that if you are in a snow prone area, the snow directly over that room on the roof will melt.  Kind of a tell tale sign you are growing.  Not too many people are probably privy to it though.

There's trees around the house, and it's on farmland, so it's really not an issue in this case.

I'm also considering putting a hole in the floor to drain the portable ac unit I picked up yesterday. There's no reservoir to hold the water, and I don't want to have to remember to empty something like that anyways. Lol how much condensation does an 11k btu unit put out on average?

Oh not much, that's about what I have.  I just drain it once a week to every other week
