Air cooled hood works too well?

 
 

After putting together my grow room and doing a few dry runs I have come to find that my 1000w MH air cooled hood works so well that I have had to add a space heater to keep temps in the upper 70s lower 80s. I was thinking that since the room stays so cool would it be better to ditch the air cooled hood and just use a bat wing style reflector? I have the space heater along with a portable A/C unit wired to a thermostat that maintains about 78-81 degrees, the only thing is that the A/C unit never kicks on only the space heater for about a minute or so every 20 min roughly. I am planning on growing 9 Jack Herer plants under the 1000w and I have a 6” can fan in the attic that pulls through my carbon filter then the air cooled hood then out into the attic, just to give you a batter idea of my setup. Im working with about 512 cubic feet.
