without proper ventilation it can get 100+ easy

but to answer the question yes, some people do it, i guess you would have to if heat were that much of an issue indoors

It was a sarcastic remark, i am quite aware of the temps in a grow room. However using an ac unit is the dumbest thing i ever heard of to power temps, maybe in a commercial set up but for the home cultivator no way.
For one ac systems need vented outside, and they cause a lot of humidity, use a lot of unnecessary electric, and are expensive.
Buy a fan, build a carbon scrubber and vent it.

Actually i had to use an aircondtioner once in my room but not the whole system its self.I let the air conditioner unit sit in a window so it would cool my regular room and attached a 6" duct about 6 foot long going into my grow room,worked great.But if u dont have the money i wouldnt suggest doing it it can be costly to run airconditoners.

call me dumb i guess.. but i use AC in my grow room during warm weather months. I also have a carbon filter and a fan venting out... i donno AC keeps it nice and cool in there and i doubt i'd be able to grow during the summer without it. Sure it costs more but what i pay for a month of AC is probably 2 buds from 1 plant.. which sounds pretty cheap to me.

AC doesn't cause a lot of humidity it reduces humidity.

yeah an air conditioner solves the vent problem. it allows for cheaper and more efficient co2 enrichment. i see where it just looks unpractical, when you could be using a series of cooltubes, but that urban grower guy is all over air conditioners like white on rice. if you had 40-50 plants in a small bedroom running 3500 watts of light, youd probably wanna run some sort of small ac or chiller instead of sacrificing all that co2 enrichment.

I use an A/C in my room, i have to so i can keep the temps perfect. if i dont, it gets way to hot, even tho i have intense ventilation the outside temp here is always 26c to 35c with 70-100% Humidity.

I cant see what that guy is going on about as tho an aircon is the worst thing in the world .... if it keeps your temps under control = more yield, simple as that.
