Cuz there’s so much moisture In the air when I’m cooling the room from outside it sucks in to cool the room and then the Dehumidifier Carnt keep up. High humidity’s!!!!!!!!

im running a InkbirdSmart. Thermostat With a heater and using the intake/exhaust for cooling, a inkbird humidy with a Argo humidifier and pro breeze 1500ml dehumidifier, just upgraded from the 500ml.  

humidity % continues to rise until the room exhausts. Ok for now but wen I a get to flower I’m going to be fooked.

Is there a description of your grow room/environment somewhere that you can link to?  From what I gather you are growing in a room and pulling air into said room from outside (outdoors)?

Is that correct?  Here are my questions:

What kind of climate do you live in? 

What kind of room is the grow room (closet, unfinished, garage, etc.)? 

How big is the grow room?

How are you intaking and also exhausting your air (size of fans/ducts, cfm speeds)?

What kind of lights are you running?

What are the relative humidity and temperatures in your grow room with the lights on and off?

@bogleg thank you for the reply I’m attempting to grow in my shed, in uk winter weather, 4 inch ducting for intake and exhaust from outside. Migrow led 4 way. 240watts. 1500x600x900. Air tight Enclosure. With 2 x 4 inch fans via controllers attached to rhino carbon filters in and out. Inkbird probes, 4 inch ram air circulation fan, oil heater. 
relative temps and humidity good question, ill have to Turn everything off except the light and let you no. The outside air is 2 degrees at 90% RH. 🤦‍♂️

@goldseal94 Are the intake and exhaust fans constantly running or are they cycling on and off with a timer?

And are they constant speed or variable speed?  How hot does it get in winter in the shed with the lights on and no fans running?

What I'm driving at is whether or not it would be possible to only intake as much air as needed, so you aren't heating and removing moisture from more air than is necessary.  So if the fans ran with a cycle (say 1 minute on, and 9 minutes off), would the temps get above 25C, and would the RH average lower?

Hi buddy try pulling the filter off your intake and replace with a pair of stockings and possibly shut the intake fan off , as above the vents can help your high rh while light run 

Sucking ⛽
