does ne one know or have experience with this???

what happens when you heat up your attick when its normally supposed to be cold??

does this mess up the heat in your house?

im venting my closet and its totlaly sealed, once the heat rises in the attick, the house temps start falling.

should the exhaust be vented right outside or what??

anyone else having these probs or know ne thing bout this??

where is your intake coming from? If you are sucking air from the main portion of the house then yes, your house temp will fall. If the attic is warmer then the downstairs shouldn't change unless you are moving air from there.

intake from the attick on side and another side runs the exhaust
but once the attick goes from 28f to 50f, the home goes 75f to 68f, i was thinking heating up the attick screws up the (thermodynamics)???

the grow is sealed , air come from the attick and goes into the attick, attic ks outdoor vents keep outside air circulating in.

would it b better to just vent directly outdoors using a dryer vent and 4" by 8' tubing??

There is always an issue... if someone wants to get you, you are gonna get got. So best to not tell neone and stop worrying.
If your attic is warm then there would be less heat loss from the bottom to the attic... so it would be more efficient to heat the house.
