Default hydroponic shed in the house

I have a metal cabinet in my garage and I was going to refurbish it into a grow shed and place it in my house, because the weather gets way too hot in the garage in the summer and I don't want to have to mess with moving it around. What I am wondering is, if it is in the metal cabinet, am I still going to need a chiller for the water?

Thanks!

It should stay the same temp, as the air inside the cabinet. You could move the tub out side the cabinet and plumb it back inside of it. So the water will stay the same temp as your house.

You can also cover the P.V.C. tubing with pipe insulation to keep the solution from warming up along it's travel through the P.V.C. tubing.

Check out this system, its really simple and cheap. Change the res once a week and just need an airstone + pump.
