Thanks for the kind words! To answer your questions, I have two 4" Vortex inline fans blowing fresh air at light height to keep things cool and supply CO2. They each move 175 cfm (cubic feet per minute). I also installed a large exhaust fan (3240 cfm) near the ceiling to really cool things down if necessary. It will eventually be controlled by a thermostat but I haven't had to use it much so far so it's not a priority.
The lights are HID (high intensity discharge) with electronic ballasts and MH(metal halide) bulbs. Four 1000 watt lights on the corners and two 600 watt lights to fill in between. I will eventually install light movers to increase the efficiency of the system.
I can post pictures of the build from the start if anyone is interested.
