  1. Hi I'm setting a grow up in a loft I've insulated it with king span insulation used in houses then boarded it all up then put Mylar on roof and walls,I was planning on using 4-5 600w lights and putting roughly 40 pots in question really is not only do u think this cud work but the best way to sort the electrics out without it going bang!ive also got 2 4inch inline fans bringing fresh air in and 8inch inline fan attached to filter I was thinking ov putting 3-4 small desk fans for each corner,I've been looking at 8 way sockets that apparantly reduce the power n make it safe are they the best/cheapest option?any good advice is welcomed

    You need to pump the hot air out. Attics make great grow ovens...and come summer time you can forget about it.
    What you are building is a big solar dehydrator. saw a hole in the house and mount a window AC unit in the hole.
    Electrical...well I dont think you are prepared to plug in 2,400 watts of lights and fans. To be safe you want 3 20 amp circuits .
    I have no idea how anything saves power.  you running 240V?
  3. Will I be ok venting into the eves of the loft?ive built a room within the loft n was gonna vent into the eves,yea I'm using 240watt,also i havnt got a red/blue spectrum light should I get one?
