    I want to say yes, but I would keep a close eye on the environment, and to make sure it’s programmed right for the evening time or on a timer so you don’t dip too low when the lights are off.

    anytime I add a new piece of equipment into my grow I like to do a “dry run” without plants for a couple days just to make sure I don’t change the environment negatively, and make sure it goes as planned when I put some new seedlings in there.


      This sounds like a swamp cooler, which will put moisture in the air. IF you need to raise the RH this would do it. These are effective in cooling very dry air, and flounder with humidity..


        I have an 8x8 with a portable air conditioner in it and it works great. Sounds like you got a swamp cooler, you might want something stronger if your lights are really hot.


          To answer your question about whether or not it’s okay to keep growing in 35-40 C temps, I would say Hale No. That is way too hot, you have to do something. Read this awesome article:
