I had this problem recently....

I stuck some old heavy jackets on the top of my tent to prevent heat loss through the top.

I then cut off active extraction whilst lights were on with a fan blowing over the tops - reaching a steady 23-25c - which given its 10c here is not bad.

I also reversed the lighting cycle so that its on during the night when colder and off during the day when warmer.

To release the build up of moisture I then turn on the active extraction for 1-2 hrs per day when its lights out.

I dont think aiming for higher than 25c is going to be viable being honest unless you splodge on more heating.

What setting have you got your sms on ? what lamp have you got ? Is your growroom outside ? btw 28.3 is not perfect , 26 is nearer the mark.

Leave the intake off and adjust your 6" extract with the controller

Only yesterday i found out here that the sms needs to be on 40% and 30 c, try that first. You could use the 4" for extraction and passive intake, this would probably warm it up a little at least when the light is on. Running the lights at night as north said is a good idea. Good luck. What owd said :notworthy:

Those settings worked on my sms 4.5 twin fan controller, give it a go and see what happens, 40% on the left hand dial if its the same as mine. By 12pm do you mean midnight ?
