Dehumidifier to reduce heat levels

Hey guys and gals,

Humidity levels in my tent over the past few days have giving me great cause for concern as i am 5 weeks into flower, I will be adding a dehumidifier to get on top of the situation and rectify as soon as..

With my temps been much higher than usual as well due to the recent warmer weather can I expect the temps to maybe come down by a degrees or two?

No,the de-huey will warm the air that passes through it by 4/5 degrees.Have had the same issues over the last week.It has cooled down now but the amount of rain and humidity at 100% has my de-huey struggling to keep it under 60%

No, unfortunately dehumidifiers produce warm air as a product. If anything, it will increase your temperature.

All motors produce heat. Only an air conditioner would cool things down. Increasing air circulation may help though.

What the others said... a dehuey produces heat.
I'm in the same situation at the moment... 80% rh and I'm drying hanging whole plants hahaha.
I have the dehuey in the room and the mobile AC unit blowing through the door into the room. A pretty ghetto solution but I can't lose the harvest as I'm almost out!!!
So screw the electricity bill for a week or two ;-)

Funny enough, never had any problems flowering any of my strains out in high rh...

ur better off using an ac unit as the dehuey if you arent running leds
if you do run leds , its ok to run higher temps

I solved that problem, I suck from the top of the tent and discharge to my grow room via a carbon filter that sits on top of the tent. This is all conducted via an RH Inkbird controller.

Thanks for the input everyone,

I also suck from the top and the bottom.
I have two 10inch Etaline extractors pulling through mountain air scrubbers these are controlled
By sms com.

My environment is usually point perfect its a ocd thing after all these years.

All my ballasts are running at 650 Watts hps, I'm thinking of running the humidifier and then reducing the watts on some of the ballasts down to 400 to compasate for the rise in temps from the humidifier .
Fuck these summer temps, next year I'm going on vacation instead.

That is why I no longer grow from end May to end of Aug here. When I look at the summer we are having here this year. I am a wise old man. The remainder of the year, my tent is pretty much dialed in on point, with minimal expense. It took me one summer to realize, phoque this! Taking the summer off if a good thing. I further plan to reduce my grows to 1 per year. I don't need more than that, now that my medicine chest is near capacity.

You make perfect sense switcher,

This wise old man needs to get wiser and reduce the amount of grows per year, but obviously up the numbers...

Enjoy your break...
