Temperature with back hatch open

Does anyone know if the inside temperature of the unit changes if the back hatch is permanently open because of installing an external air pump? Has anyone experienced any pests as well because the hatch is open?



The inside temp might drop by a degree or something, but typically it doesn’t affect much. Most people actually leave the hatch open, myself included, until my pump started making a terrible noise and I couldn’t get it to stop. Closing the hatch helped.

This also could help airflow a bit and lower the humidity by a degree or two from what I’ve read on the forums.

No idea on the pest thing… could be a potential but there isn’t much down there to attract them…
