The rapid increase of the cannabis industry within the United States creates a critical need for proper HVAC equipment in Grow Room facilities. Growing cannabis can be very tricky due to the fact it is grown indoors instead of outdoors like other crops. It is critical that cooling and dehumidification are the focus of their HVAC needs.
There are six main challenges that one will face when determining an HVAC system for a grow facility. Those six challenges are temperature, humidity, lighting, airflow, ventilation, and smart technology.
Grow room facilities typically need to be between 70°F-75°F with humidity between 50-60%. HVAC systems should be able to maintain the specific temperature to ensure growth for the plants. Also needed is the ability to quickly remove any additional humidity that may arise during the watering process. The lights used in these facilities also produce a large amount of heat, therefore, needing a strong HVAC unit to keep the rooms cool and prevent overheating.
Airflow is critical and your HVAC system should provide enough to create a “natural like breeze” to ensure the plants have constant movement and vibration. Equally important is the need to provide extensive filtration to the system. This will ensure smells cannot leak to the outside and prevents mold spore formation by capturing all dust and sediment. Lastly, your grow room cooling unit must have smart technology enabled in order to control all of the above mentioned or alert you if something goes wrong.
