The only potential concern will come during the animal afternoons of summer, when I won’t be able to run the furnace, which will lower the humidity levels
The beach house came with a immense basement, which is area of the reason I picked it. I grew up way down south, where the water table is too high for any new home to have a basement, then up north things are different, & I appreciated the idea of having a full sized room, beneath the house. This would be the best possible arena to grow cannabis plants, because they would be completely hidden from the outside world. I didn’t need natural sunlight, I had device for that. What I needed was a nice climate controlled room to focus our growing operation. The beach house is heated by a furnace that is over thirty years old. It still generates heating & ever, however its age & antiquity make it far less efficient than a modern heater. This was also something that could work to our advantage, because the furnace generated a lot of humidity. The furnace was also the hot water heater, which put excess levels of moisture into the air of the basement! Since our pot plants needed a great source of ambient moisture, this would be a good way to kill several birds with a single stone. The only potential concern will come during the animal afternoons of summer, when I won’t be able to run the furnace, which will lower the humidity levels. I guess I can find a nice humidifier to run during the Summer weeks & keep our plants healthy. It will take some degree of trial & error to find the perfect air quality & humidity levels for our growing operation.
