How cool do you have to make it? The only way for steady solid cold weather fruiting is a little window banger A/C..or a fridge. Or you can make a do hicky out of those things that have 5 gallon water jugs on them that cool the water..if you run a hose out of the machine, and back in (for a cycle) with the cold water running through it..you can use that to cool a water source. That would require some experience in rigging up such things though and I've not actually seen it done to succeed in this hobby.

A quick way to just drop the temps would be frozen 2 liter bottles (or whatever)..have some in the freezer at all times and rotate them in your chamber when they melt. Requires some work...

If you could get creative enough you can find a way, but there are no easy cost effective solutions that just exist...except what I mentioned...I think...
