Ventilation doubt

Post by frankthirtyspears »

Hi guys, after setting up my grow tent and ventilation system i ran into a pretty big doubt. The tent is ventilated at the bottom with a small clip fan i use as an intake and expelled at the top with a small exhaust fan and a big fan making the air move a bit into the room but here comes my doubt: is it a problem if the room is enclosed? I mean, it has a window and a door but i'd prefer keeping the former closed if not strictly necessary and the window if kept open during day raises the temperature inside the tent from approximately 25 to around 27 and i'm not sure if it's good for a seedling. How can i handle this, is it enough just open the window for 15/20 minutes every 3-4 hours during day, do i need to switch the cycle and keep the light on at night with the window open or anything else? I'll attach with photos of the setup to make it easier to understand since i've probably explained everything in a confused way.

Dont doubt your posts mate

I understand ur question completely

If its a small enclosed room and u have that sized tent filled with living breathing things they will need fresh air like u r concerned about. What would be worth looking into is installing a window fan and stealth install an air intake is what I would do so u can automate air intake and u dint have to always be worrying about shit did i burp the growroom??

Taking a second look now that i put my bowl down Id say that 3x3 ft tent (is it bigger?) in what seems to be a 10x10 ft room? Id say just keep circulating the air in the room with the window SHUT as it will help hide smell. And then u walkig in and out of the room here and there will refresh that room a bit every now and then

Shit i shoulda trusted my gut... i edited my initial guess of 2x2 to 3x3 cuz I thought i was being a high ass. I think u should leave that room shut up man. Seems “safer” for now. Dont tell NO ONE
