no mate . its a good thing.

Quite common to oversize the fan and have it on a controller turned down, ready if it warms up.

Loads of fresh air.

Long as temps are ok.

crack on

lol I cannae give you more power Captain! :ninja:   I pinned a tarpaulin all over my growroom floor once and when I turned on the fans, it was like a bouncy castle with air bumps in the tarpaulin in between the tacks. lol  Always handy to have the extra extraction for those exceptionally hot days though. :sweaty:

that sounds like negative pressure mate, which you need for containing the smell, if you don't have negative pressure the smell escapes from any and all cracks and spaces in your grow room and your carbon filter ends up pretty much useless.

Negative pressure will keep the smells from escaping.

 

If you are extracting way to much air your plants will love it. A fresh supply of air will just make them happy and keep them healthy.

Haha, I got bouncy castle walls and ceiling mate...The light is about 6" from one wall and after having a jay and getting quite stoned I got paranoid it was gonna suck the reflective off the wall and land on the light causing a fire(you know how it is)..So I went up the 24hr garage about midnight a bought 2 more packs of drawing pins and near enough covered the wall in them, i went stupid with it... The mrs come in when I was checking on them the other day and seen the wall with all the pins.. She thinks i'm smoking to much...I said 1 spliff done that love
