View Full Version : My house is hot today

This is the warmest yet this year. It's 81 in here. I have two of the three halides set to turn off at 82. They're cycling on and off about every 20 minutes.
It'll be nice when I set up the new tank and have the chiller.
Get a Reefkeeper or other controler that can cycle a fan, it keeps my Chiller from coming on till monsoons start. Alot cheaper then running a chiller alone. See you Sat.

I have a AC JR.
With 3 halides and 2 VHOs, my fans run full blast all the time. Having the controller turn off two halides has an immediate effect on the temp. I'll have to bring you over on Saturday.

My condo stays hot year round. Middle of December without the heater on it still got to 80 some degrees in here and I don't have the Halides like you guys. I can only imagine what your houses gt like.

I put a clip on fan above my sump- works like a charm.

I have 3 fans in the canopy, and they really work. The house has to be 81 before the tank gets to 82. The chiller will be nice so I won't have screaming fans all day and I'll be able to turn down the TV. :)
Mike it gets better, as you get older your hearing starts to go, lol.

I was going to put 2 fans on my sump, do you guys think that will work for the summer? My tank is already running 82-82.5. Any good recommendations on fans or where to get one?
Wal-Mart, $7.00 clip on fan

Listen to these other guys on where to get them. I have two Icecap variable speed fans and one that came out of a PC fixture.
