    Fan/Filter inside tent OR outside tent?

    Hey all, was at the grow store today and they had some display tent's set up. 2 of them had fan/filter combos outside tent sitting on the ground with flex pipe up to a vent(sucking air out and pushing it thru the filter). The sales person said lots of growers do it this way.? Anyone here do it this way?? Would be great for me..extra room in the tent.

    I've run it outside and everything was just fine.

      It's really personal preference but you can do it either way. I've done both and they work the same. Only reason I put it outside was because I didn't want light leaking through my reflector hood since the ventilation hooked directly to it. When I did have it outside the tent I just threw it right on top of my tent so it didn't clutter my floor. Hoping that helps a little.

          Out helps keep grow tent temperature stable and gives you more room for plants.

            Mine are both inside but I would prefer more head room, may rework it after my current grow but since mine vents into an area of our attic with no power I’ll need to add an outlet for the fan

              I always ran mine outside the tent.
              The fan motor made the tent get hotter than I wanted it to be, so moved it outside the tent and temps went back to where I wanted them to be.

                Thanks everyone! Outside it is....It'll give me more room and look cleaner with no ducting in there.
