What a difference a fan makes...

So first time grower here. I bought a kit: Vivosun 33x33x63, It came with a ipower 4" 154 cfm fan. The variable switch went out the first day and then would only run on high. I was having trouble with temps and humidity. The lowest I could get the temp was around 84 degrees, but doing so would drop the humidity to around 35% even with a humidifier in the tent. (It is dry in Colorado.)
So I replaced it with an AC Infinity T6. What a huge difference! I am still using the 4" filter with a reducer. Had to change the configuration because of the length with the reducer. Now I have it at a steady 80.6 degrees and 64% humidity. Fan is running at level 4 and it is barely a whisper. I bought the T6 instead of the T4 thinking it would allow me more control while running at a lower speed.
I am growing a GG4 clone in Fox Farms Ocean Forest. So far, everything is going well. Glad I decided on a new fan.

Don’t forget if your filter is rated lower than your fan in CFM you could get smell issues as the air could be passing over the filter quicker than it can clean.

Ideally you want a slightly higher CFM rating on your filter and lower on your fan.

450cfm filter
400cfm fan

for example.

Get the new 67 Bluetooth remote for the fan, will make you even happier! And if your running LED lights 84 degrees is ok. Like warmer Temps with LED lighting.

Looking good. I wish I had the same prob with humidity. Got a full 2x4 and with a 150cfm filter and 125cfm fan, it's always 10% higher in the tent due to the foliage.

All three vents are open, and there's three Heller 15cm fans in the tent. It's currently 44% in the room, but 57% in the tent. end stage of flower so it's pissing me off lol. If it hits 55% humidity in the room, it's pushing 65 in the tent which is scary right now.

New tent came today. Fits so much better in the space now. 6"Filter and ducting coming tomorrow. Hung the fan and filter up top again. (Happy now, Major Blazer? I mounted the circulation fan controller to the inline fan. Lights are on a smart timer which I can also control with my phone. A little bit of tidying up left, get cords and stuff zip tied out of the way, yes it bothers me to have them hanging around and messy looking.

Hahaha looks real good man but most importantly this is more ideal for regulating environmentals. Side note I never noticed how thick those poles on the ac Infinity Tents were until now.
