They have these replacement clothes dry elements or there are in-line heaters on Amazon. Like 6"-8" duct heaters that you could pull cold air thru. $$

Cranked my light for tonight to 100% and raised it up a bit more.

Got highs of 23c today as apposed to 19/20c.

See what we get for tonight on the low side.

Should of insulated my shed but rand out of cash and had to fire it up regardless.

Ive lined the shed with plywood and can't be fucked to take all of it down, not a great carpenter and did a fair job but I'm not convinced I could take it down, insulate and have it all back up the way it is now.

 

Fuuuckkk!

Oil heater it is then I guess if the light can't keep it warm tonight.

Gonna be cold too.

@discobiscuitt put a separate growtent In there closed up but with hps running autos, use the exhaust heat to warm shed room and get extra crop?

I never grow a plant, it grows me.

Drill holes at 1 ft intervals and fill with expanding foam 😉

I've got one of the tube heaters and oil filled one it's only 500 Watts 

Insulate your tent and your shed

I've just done my garage with foil covered bubble wrap and fixed it with spray glue dead easy and simple

Genesis 1:29-God said, “Look, I have given you all the plants that have grain for seeds and all the trees whose fruits have seeds in them. They will be food for you.

I'm gonna run to screw fix and grab 3 or 4 cans expanding foam.. Seems like my easiest option of insulation without major work. 

Grab a oil heater and my problem should be solved hopefully. 

Really appreciate the input from everyone... Nice to see peoples different solutions to the same issue. 

All great ideas 

I'm my case ZN had the most applicable solution in my circumstances, never would have thought of that.

As dobbin suggested, this fol bubble wrap stuff is really easy to apply, once you have filled your cavity with the expanding foam. it would be worth coating the entire shed in this, only save u money in the long run, especially focusing on the shed door and windows

Foil backed bubble wrap is NOT insulation, its a reflective thermal barrier...it will reflect the heat already in the shed, if no heat outside of tent, its pretty worthless 😉

@discobiscuitt Yeah mate for insulation wise it one of the cheapest options imo, £30 for 30M Roll, couple cans of adhesive spray and u ready to go doing that with the expanding foam as well will work a treat, If you did not get enough for an entire shed, just focus using tht on the doors and windows,

try seal door best u can as well, be where losing most the heat goes i would imagine, but with all this extra insulation and sealing  need to consider the condensation build-up, and make sure still will have plenty of ventilation for the shed cant seal it up completely

@zn The shed will be warming up from the tent/lights inside and keeping more stable temp though?

Mine doesn't do that and its in a bedroom, all heat in tent is extracted, room stays at 18°C while tent is at 27°C...I would guess it would be lower in an outside shed
