Cooling off room

SO what would be an alternative to lower 10 degrees of heat in your grow room or tent without the use of an a.c.????

You could try increasing the extraction speed of your fan, so you get more air exchanges through the room.  That really only works if you have an intake source that's cooler than your tent, though.  Other than that, not much, unfortunately.  In my experience, swamp coolers don't help enough to mess with.

When in doubt take them out!  Sometimes when heat is dangerous to the health of the plant due to the confines of a tent or closet, I find a splash of a south facing window and a fan will keep them healthy and cool(morning and early afternoon direct light/moon light when it's full).  Now this is asuming you have the freedom to grow without prejudice.  LED's are great for a cooler Grow but they still give off heat.  If you chose to keep them in the tent make sure you invest in a dehumidify because you could have a mold issue quickly if the climate isn't in check. Good luck.
