Hey Guys, I am thnking about buying a Portable AC unit (Arounf $325). Has anyone had any experience with these? It would be in a closed off 10x10 closet with one outside air vent that brings in fresh air from another room in the house. Any opinions? Pors or cons that I might be missing??

By portable you mean indoor right?
If so, one thing people dont realize is they still build up condensation and need to be emptied every day or so.

If you buy the right unit they are a great investment. The newer units have advanced evaporation technology that eliminates the use of a tank and utilizes a exhaust tube. If one does the proper research the proper portable AC will be a great addition to any small grow room.

Thanks Guys. Temps are in the low 80's curently and thats with the door open and exaughst running all the time. Once the door is closed, Mylar is up and exaughst fan is shut off (To release co2) temps will be in the 90's, So I really want to try one of the portable AC units. Since I'm going to add some CO2, Whats the ideal temp then?

OK Guys, I got the portable A/C but I have another problem that I dint think about. If I eject CO2 into the room, the A/C will filter it out of the room through the exhaust) and I cant keep a good co2 enviroment. My question is...

If I use that portable A/C to run VERY COLD air over my light (Which is currently being cooled by room temp air) will that decrease the amount of heat that it is throwing out? (I need about 5-7 degrees cooler.)

Also, is it safe to run staright air conditioned air over a 1000w light? Any help is appreciated!
