    $700-$800 for an air cooled set up?Where you shopping bro?If you already have one use it!Your HID really shouldn't drop your rh.As your plants get a little bigger your rh will raise untill then you can always use a cool mist humidifier

    For $450.00 bucks you can get a standup dual tube portable 14,000 btu air conditioner to solve all your cooling needs. For $130 a whirlpool humidifier/dehumidifier 70 pint to solve your humidity problems. You must have been over exaggerating the cost a bit. A cool hood for your light should be less than $100 bucks with and extraction fan.

    You do need to keep temps below 80 unless using CO2.

    A new air cooled hood, ducting, in-line fan, and clamps is all you should need to get your bulbs heat out of your grow room or tent. With an iPower cool tube with reflection wings at the most $100 total. Amazon has that hood for $67. I have a $300 6 inch Raptor air cooled hood and only have around $550.00 in my whole lighting system including 1000 watt digital dimmable ballast and 1000 watt Eye Hortilux bulb. You already have the ballast and bulbs that your new hood would plug right into. Your light has nothing to do witty your Rh. You can solve that problem with a Vick’s Cool Mist Humidifier. As pipes said, when your plants are bigger they will sweat and produce more moisture in the air and you will then need a dehumidifier. Good luck and happy growing my friend!
