On a recent episode of grow talk You where talking about air conditioners and about Dudes window A/C hack. I recently Had to add an A/C into my grow as the temperatures outside started to climb. This winter I had switched from a vented tent, to a sealed Co2 enriched tented because of extreme low humidity. The space around my tent is tight so something like Dudes option was out. So I had to give up some floor space and go with a portable floor A/C unit. I vented it out the top so the heat was leaving the tent, but I was still pulling air from the tent and then exhausting it out. So I bought a HVAC 10x10x8 ceiling register box and mounted it to the back over the air intake. I used self adhesive foam padding that came with the A/C to help seal the box to the unit. I put it around the intake and then used a few light ratchets to strap it to the A/C. I attached a piece of 8″ ducting a ran it out of the tent. After sealing it in a few place with silver HVAC tape, I tried it out and turn the Co2 back on. Its been a week and It seams to be work will. I don’t see my Co2 regulator kicking any more then normal and the A/C has an auto mode with a temperature setting so it only runs when it needs to. Now I just need to find a way to mount my Dehumidifier in the tent so I can get back some floor space.
