Keeping your grow room or grow tent within the optimal temperature range can be tricky, especially during summer months if you use powerful grow lights.
How can I cool my grow room in summer?
Fans and blowers are a way to circulate air in the growing space and will decrease temperatures to a certain extent, but generally wont be enough.
To really cool down a grow room, you will need a grow room air conditioner. The most popular A/C system is the mini-split A/C system, due to its efficiency and high cooling capabilities. There are also commercial A/C systems for large greenhouses or warehouses, but if you are growing in a tent or small grow room, the portable A/C will be your best option.
Portable grow room air conditioners
Best for small grow rooms and grow tents, portable A/C units offer compact and convenient cooling. These can be wheeled into tight spaces, and don't require any duct work or installation like other systems. Portable A/C's pull in hot hair, cool it, and redistribute it back into the environment.
When sizing an air conditioner for your grow room or tent, consider how much space you have, and the BTU's produced by your equipment. Once you know this, simply choose a unit capable of removing more BTU's from the environment than you are producing. At Hydrobuilder, our portable A/C units range from 12,000 BTU's up to 60,000 BTU's.
