I'd have to agree with you, that if you have 8-1000W ballasts inside your room, you probably need more then the base 5K.
But if you'd move the ballasts(AKA heaters:smile
out of the room like a normal
) , switch to 18 hour cycles to save some energy, and put a big res in that room, you'd be fine.
(hope your sarcasm meter is on too)
yes there was a typo..... sry it was late and after working a 12 hr day + tending to my grow room's on top of sum grape ape.... i fixed the typo's in my post sry about this guy's
the reason i dont put my ballasts out of the room ( btw i run 8 ballast on flip flop's 4 in each room) is theres no other place to put them i have a huge room with 4 rooms built in that.... any place i put them there in a growroom...
the reason i get away with under 5000 in the 2 rooms is i have a unit that runs the building it self to a 78 deg start point witch is like someone who starts a room in a empty bedroom and has central air in there house
it's called ambient temp and it plays a role in picking a a/c as well but i have not came up with a good "base" to go by for this so its not posted but will be soon
18/6 is only good for my mom/veg rooms if you look back at my post is says the a/c's run 24/7 when lights are ON...... witch is what you want or you will run into hummity prob's..... if you run a 40,000 btu the thing will kick on/off so much not only will you have spikes and lights trying to relight when you run power like me but you will have white powder mold to start growing on your bud's from the high hum....
my sarcasm meter is allways on..... i dont take shit but if im wrong im the first to man up..... 5000btu is wrong on all levels of growing from 2k to 8k even with 1k in a 3x3 room 5kbtu would not cool with out air cooled hoods or intake/outake
