Another issue I just came across..turns out I can't exhaust out my basement window unless I completely replace said window. It's one of those little windows that only open half way...grrr.

It's a 4x4 tent running in LED's in an 800 square foot basement. The basement has a few small cracks here and there and.

Can I get away with just exhausting into the basement? Basement is 90% humidity right now but I have a dehumidifier for the grow tent..

Thanks!

How big is the opening when half-way? Can't you still vent out of it by rigging something up? What's the problem exactly? It might get hot down there with the dehumid running so hard and no exhaust. Also no exhaust generally means no fresh air.

Thanks. The window retracts "inward" (inside the basement) thus the gap to the outside world is <2 inches. Since I'm working with six inch ducting I'm not sure much air would be escaping anyway?...Also with it being as hot as it is outside here, I figured a semi-opened window with hot air coming in would just create more problems. Even bigger problems come winter, no?

Somehow it's 90F degrees outside and my basement is 64%F. My air conditioner is housed in the basement so I guess it's technically getting some air flow both ways around the house..not much, but some.

Maybe something like this would work, then mask off the rest of the openings with plywood cut to size: https://www.homedepot.com/p/Master-F...-2X6/100151049

You're correct, that's what I should do. A small car doesn't give me ready access to plywood but I'll try to get the lumber guy to cut a piece for me.

Thank you!
