Running carbon filter and light cooler with single fan?

Discussion in 'Grow Room Design/Setup' started by Hawaiian Haze, May 14, 2011.

  1. Is it possible to cool a 1000w HID bulb and a carbon filter (a little smaller than a 5 gallon bucket) with a single 115 CFM inline duct fan? I know I probably won't have to use the carbon filter until flowering, but will the fan be enough to both cool and filter the air or will I need a seperate one? Also, when using a carbon filter, is it a good idea to have it running 24/7?
  2. That's isn't enough to cool a 1000 watt light. I'd go with 400+ CFM inline fan at least.
  3. The more CFMs the better. Run the fan and filter 24/7.
  4. Lets say I hooked up a peltier unit to my light reflector. It's a metal plate with one side that gets as cold as 6 degrees (celcius) and emits heat on the other side of the plate. If I were to hook up a small computer fan to blow the cold air towards the light, would the 115 cfm fan be enough to keep it cool? I know it probably wouldn't be enough to run a filter and cool the light, but I don't have the $ to buy another fan atm.
