    Mass I saw this some time ago:
    http://www.xtremesystems.org/forums/...%8556K-Warning!

    Force the chilled water on the way out through a car radiator or something and blow air through it. This is a nice project if you have the land and time.

    As mentioned "night lights" are very popular with OGF'rs. Call your power company and ask if they offer reduced rates at night, also ask if they offer discounts for the disabled. Some companies do. If so, this would help at all hours of the day/night.
    Hey Larry, how're we holding up?
    What's an OGF'er?
    No discounts, we've already asked.

    We do have central air.. and I'll do a few experiments with your ideas.

    Not sure my HL/UHL collection would fair well in this 100*F heat.

    My collection is a bit more demanding than yours.
    We do grow some of the same stuff, but my beginner's plants are already outside.
    You shouldn't be proud of being stuck at that level for 20 years.

    @Gill & Rocket: This is where you lost my interest:

    "So, my guesstimate is $527.15 out-of-pocket."

    You shouldn't be proud for wasting energy and thousands of dollars needlessly..

    My point was..you can have a very nice CP collection without having to spend a dime on heating, light or cooling..
    if you choose to spend money on heating, light or cooling..thats fine..but its not accurate to say you will have to give up the hobby completely..

    And I love the deliberate use of "beginner plants" and the condescending attitude of "being stuck at that level"
    that's nice...jerk.
    translation: "My collection is SO superior to yours! Im an advanced CP grower, you are a simpleton"..
    Meanwhile, im not the one complaining because I cant afford my "advanced" collection..
    I deliberately choose plants that cost me nothing for light, heating or cooling..
    who's the smart one now?

    I'm glad you can read between the lines. At least the comment didn't go to waste.
    And needlessly?
    Tell that to N. villosa, N. macrophylla, N. lowii, N. x TM, and a handful of tuberous & S. American dews.
    Oh wait, you've probably never seen those before. SO...
    From all of us high-end indoor growers, you sir.. are a moron.

    Did you really come here, to my thread, trying to pick a fight?
    If not, save your snide comments for someone more passive.

    Thanks for proving me right..
    No, I didnt come here to pick a fight..I only meant to make one comment about how its very possible to enjoy this hobby
    without needing to spend tons of money on energy..
    you said

    "Like Lance said, could be the lights. If the lights are too much to run, then this whole CP addiction has to come to an end."
    I thought "come to an END? seriously?" so I said:
    "hmmm..I have been happily addicted to CP's for nearly 20 years, and haven't spent a penny for light, heating or cooling in all that time!
    you then made the decision to be a **** about it..
    end of story.
