That being said, here is what I have going on, I would love input, advice, or opinions. This is far from my first build, and I am quite excited to be picking up all new gear and getting a fresh start.
I have two rather large spaces to choose from, money for the gear, and the time to build. First, I need to decide on the gear to order, and finish planning out some small stuff. Here is what I know/ think so far:
•light movers for half of the room (I have always wanted to experiment with these, so it will be cool to do a side by side test)
•3 ton ac unit
•sealed air tight with one 16 inch can filter in flower room
•16x600 switchable digital ballasts
I am stoked
Here are my changes from what I have done in the past:
•Switching from 1000w lights to 600w, to help keep my power bill low. or maybe my efficiency up;)
•Horizontal, non air cooled reflectors, I like to scrog, so vertical lighting has not suited me well, and I refuse to cut holes in my place to run ducting ever again.
•I am getting a large 1000 RO filter, My 200 keeps me waiting around all day to fill my rez, which has caused more than a couple spills:mad:
•I would like to use a chiller this time around for my rez, to minimize problems. (root rot is a SOB!)
•Water cooled c02 burner, because the more efficient it is, the less power I will consume.
•I am going to use large, commercial dehumidifiers rather than shitty 50 pint units from the hardware store. This should allow me to run higher temps, which will maximize co2 uptake and therefore photosynthesis in my garden.
•I am going to use a 3 ton ac unit, my 5 ton was overkill last time, and a priority of mine here is to have the power bill be less brutal.
•I want to run high temps and high co2, my goal is to stay 85-88 and 1400-1600 ppm
Currently I am running 78-82 1500ppm
Everything is medical and legal, but that is not what I am here to talk about.
