First grow, just starting can’t decide between heated basement limited to 6 foot high tent or unheated space with unlimited headroom for tent. How hard is it to heat 4 by 4 tent in unseated space? Is the two additional feet worth the trouble?
It’s best to control the environment in the room your tent is in. Just my opinion. Good luck!
Would be pretty tough. The tent isn’t much insulation.
I was thinking about using heater for tent looking for options thanks
To make life easiest I would go 6’ in heated basement.
I’m not a tent user but know the room environment it’s in is very important to help control Inside the tent.
Thanks, that’s what I figured. I plan to monitor the unseated space to determine parameters through the winter.
That sounds like a smart plan buddy. Best of luck, your in great hands here👍
I’m in a unheated shop with a 6x8 room in the corner. 4"studded walls packed with pink and 2x6 ceiling with double pink and I still have some issues and I’m not near as far north as you.
I would go with hps lights for heat and unlimited room and toss the tent
Thanks, I’m really excited to begin the grow. Got seeds, 7 gal pots with 3 headed misters for fogponic/ DWC
Yeah, get that 1st grow Finished an you will be more than excited you’ll be hooked. Great hobby happy growing my friend.
Welcome 2 the community. You could set up a space heater outside the tent and vent the air in.
Also a CT grower here.
If you want to ensure that your heat stays in your tent, you can purchase 2 inch foam boards from Home Depot or Lowe’s two in case the tent with to allow for more insulating value. That should give you an r-factor of about 13 surrounding your tent. It’ll cost about $30 per 4 x 8 sheet
