1000w with parabolic in 5ft x 5ft - temps

Hello people.

 

I am thinking about going back to a 1000w in a 5ft x 5ft tent, and currently only have one fan for extraction. With a Parabolic reflector. Setup is in a room in a house.... not a loft\garage etc.

 

I currently just have an 8 inch high powered RVK for extraction. 

 

If extracting out of the room my grow is in, and bringing air in passively from outside, do you think i would be able to maintain decent temps during the summer period using the 8 inch on passive intake only? Again i can bring air in directly from outside, and will be extracting to another room


Do you think its feasible to be able to run a 1000w for the majority of the year, and possibly turn it down on the odd day when it gets really hot, or will i struggle with temps most of the time? 

 

Thanks people

You shouldn’t have any problems with that set up, I use a 1000w hps myself and I love the thing couldn’t imagine going back to a 600w.

I've got 1000w worth of lighting in the same bedroom, I run my lights at night and leave the window slightly open when it's warm and temps are fine :)

 

But you should be considering using an intake fan too for a 1000w light imo....I started using one on my 600w flowering tent and wouldn't be without it now, the plants love it and I've seen an increase in yeild too :)

Thanks mate. So you think i will be ok without the intake?

 

To be honest i am quite happy with my yield and quality, i just want to make sure i will be able to keep temps down with that setup.

 

Appreciate the help so far :)
