Setting Up an Air-Cooled Grow Light-The Right Way!
Air-cooled grow lights open up some really interesting parts of the plant world to the indoor gardener. But there’s also a lot of confusion about how to set them up right.
Air-cooled grow lights are all about offering maximum light intensity without all the associated heat issues. Some plants such as those native to high altitudes in the sub-tropics only really thrive in lots of light and relatively cool temperatures these conditions are more challenging to recreate efficiently indoors. They also allow year-round indoor gardening with less need for additional air-conditioning during the warmer months. It’s more efficient to tackle the heat when it’s concentrated at its source rather than waiting until it has entered the room. This makes it easier to regulate the temperature of your indoor garden without over-ventilating and running the risk of reducing relative humidity levels or sucking out supplemental CO2 before it’s had a chance to be utilized by your plants.
Growers use inline fans to create the air-flow over the lamp. Using an inline air filter will protect your reflector and lamp from dust and other particulates, so it’s really best practice to use them. Inline extraction fans are commonly designed to be positioned close to exit vents so that they extract (or suck) air from a room. However, when used as part of an air-cooled lighting system, it’s preferable to push air over your lamps that is, your inline fan is positioned before your air-cooled reflectors. Not only does blowing cool air create less wear and tear on your fan’s motor than sucking warm air all the while, but you will enjoy more control over air movement in and around your garden. Blowing creates a positive pressure inside your air-cooled lighting ventilation system. If there are any leaks then air will spill into your garden and be dealt with by your garden’s ventilation system. Pulling, on the other hand, creates a negative pressure inside your air-cooled lighting ventilation system, so any leaks will draw your garden’s unfiltered air in.
