Hi there everyone I'm just after some advice, when I've got all 3 of my lights running my temps are hitting 31.4 degrees which I know is a bit on the hot side, so I'm just wondering if anybody has any advice on lowering my temps a couple of degrees ? Do you think something like pictured would be any good for what I need ? T.I.A

What kind of lights in what kind of space? And what's the ambient temperature outside the grow?

I've got 3 600w hps lights in a 2.4x.2.4m tent, temps outside the tent are like 12 degrees

This would create a mold problem. O'd leave the tent open a crack and install an exhaust fan in the roof to remove ho air ad draw in cooler air. You could use a thurmostat to control the fan as well.

Hiya pal so your thinking If I buy an exhaust fan like the one one pictured and pull the air out through the roof this might solve the problem ?

Well that's convenient. Grab a thermostat controller and run a duct fan with a filter and pump cool air in the tent. Something like an inkbird temperature controller. Or AC infinity setup. It's like free AC.
Thanks pal I've ordered one so let's see if this works 🤞

Is opening the tent when lights are on an option?
Yeah I guess, can't take a shit on this street without one of the neighbours knowing how much it smelt 😂 so bit worried about that but I'm gonna have 2 filters running so hopefully won't smell too bad lol

So for those interested, I took all yours advice and got a new exhaust fan and it's worked a treat ! I left all my lights on over night and the temps went upto 34.6 degrees. But now with the new fan they are sitting nicely at 27.7 🙂
