Careful with your home heating and cooling when exhausting outside. Usually an afterthought, until your furnace is toast in the winter 🙂
One of the reasons I love going into the attic with it, at least In the summer it helps cool the house down. In the winter not so much but still. It help. But you’re definitely right. Hopefully the central ac intake isn’t anywhere near your grow…..it’ll keep the system running overtime…..

Some good carbon filters and I exhaust right into the lung room, mind tou it’s connected to an open 40x50’ crawlspace next to it but furnace and hot water heater are right in the lung room never have an issue, if. My basement gets pretty cold when I’m running the stoves in the winter so the temps are 100% based off light output, gets chilly at lights out haha

The staggered light schedules help though been working on that timing for 2 years now haha

The Mikedin mini cloner may be making an appearance soon for the cali blue and cali dreams! Gettin her set up now!

Not only that, but as someone who's grown underground in basements for decades, I can personally testify that if you do exhaust your grow room into the attic, make sure the attic also has proper ventilation. Why? Mold and mildew. I've seen a lot of houses get ruined from growing in the basement, etc. Keep in mind exhausting all that humid air into the attic (or just being in the basement) allows moisture, mold and mildew to build up INSIDE of your walls, etc.

Mikedin Mini cloner™️ looks sick!

Is that a re-purposed home depot tub as the base? Do you use a fogger/humidifier or a mister of some sort for the root zone?

Yeah but I live in Texas bro, it’s almost 100% humidity year round here. So if anything I’m depositing drier air than what the environment provides as is….😂😂😂

I have a 4500 Sq ft dehu just for the lung room but never run it, lung room RH stays at 45% usually except dead of summer; gunna plan flower times around that this year to avoid having to run it 😁
