This may be obvious to all of you hot-weather folks, but here in the
NorthEast, I have to ask; why not simply use some kind of air conditioning
unit like they use in a hotel room? Set it at 80 (or whatever) and forget
about it?
I turned a historic barn/garage into my plant house with 2 inch thick rigid
pink foam boards on the walls, and doubled up (with air space between the
layers) in the ceiling. I have not even needed to turn my heater on yet
this winter because the lights generate enough ambient heat to keep it
where it's comfortable.
I agree this is a fantastic thread.
