1000w hps in closet. Question about reducing heat. Help

Discussion in 'Growing Marijuana Indoors' started by Fatherdank, Oct 30, 2013.

  1. Hey all, i know my 1000w hps system is going to put off some heat, how much heat does the ballast put off compared to the light itself? Because the ballast has a 20ft cord and I can keep it outside of the closet. Will this make much of a difference?
  2. ....bump....
  3. Digital or magnetic? My digital has a built in fan and I only noticed a difference of about one or two degrees when I removed it from my small grow box.

    I know magnetic put off a lot of heat though. If your ballast weighs more than a few pounds it's likely magnetic

    on my second grow:
