heat issues ! - havent got an AC - what to do
    #4229435 - 05/28/05 10:14 AM (11 years, 6 months ago)

ey!

so the temp is getting hotter and hotter and therefor fruiting and colonisation
of bulk substrates is getting some kind of pain in the ass.

anyways, currently outside temp is already 30c/86F in my room its
already at 27C/81F ..

so, for bulk substrates, that temp can cause the inner of it to overheat and grill itself
and also for fruiting its going to be a bitch as the mushies will colonise
VAST areasy of the casing layer before kicking into fruitbody production...

so, besides getting sort of an AC, what chances are there to regulate the temps?

oh and before you ask, it is fairly uncommon for people in europa to have ACs
in our houses, quite the opposit from the usual practice of AC'd america.

a normal rotating fan in the room wont do much will it?

If you're not God, it might be a little difficult. Good Luck. If you are, I'm going to Kings Island on June 26-27, I'd like it 76 degrees with 85% humidity. Thanks. A fan might help a little, but don't think it will solve your problem.

This is just my advice, but im gonna say i have no experience in this area, im still planning my first grow. However, i do have a suggestion. I know that you can get these portable AC units which are called Evaporative Air Conditioners. You load water into a resivoir built into the unit, the water is then soaked up into a sponge that is infornt of a big fan, the fan then blows through the sponge, using it to produce cold air (like when wind blows on you when uve been swimming, its cold). They work really well, we had one for a while till we got our ducted air con (due to the effectiveness of our previous portable one, we went with a full ducted Evaporative Air Con, also doesnt dry the air out like areverse cycle). Hope this helps  :thumbup:. Heres an example of what im talking about:

ohm bro,

I'm not much help either.

My grow room is 73 to 76 degrees F. all year round.
The furnace in my house keeps it warm during the cold months.
And being in a day light basement keeps it cool during the summer months.

Yesterday it was in the high 80's to low 90's here in Seattle.
I checked the grow room and it was 74 degrees F. in there.

Rent a place with a cool basement in the summer.
My only advice I can give you.

It really shouldn't be much louder then a big fan. It's only pulling water though a sponge. Not actually making cold air, I believe. Only problem with that might be contams. Isn't that why we use impeller type cool mists? And not wick. If you go this way, I would difinitely add H2O2 to that water.
Good Luck.

Don't know what kind of room you are using, but is it insulated well? if not, doing so might help. Once you find a way to cool it. Help keep the cool in.
