Grow Facility HVAC Services
A traditional HVAC system is often not the best choice for grow rooms, as it is so energy-intensive that it can significantly increase the overall energy costs of the operation. Growing cannabis can be very tricky due to the fact it is most often grown indoors and it is critical that cooling and dehumidification are the focus of their HVAC needs. Traditional HVAC systems create dry environments that are not optimal for the cannabis plants and lack the flexibility to properly control airflow. Newer HVAC systems are able to balance humidity levels and distribute the appropriate cooling when needed.
The Need for a Specialized HVAC System
There are a few considerations when designing the ideal HVAC system for grow rooms. Here’s why:
- Temperature and Humidity – Grow rooms must be set with specific temperature and humidity ranges. These ranges may vary depending on the crop, but too little or too much humidity will spoil the crop.
- Energy Consumption – Grow rooms are also extremely energy-intensive. In addition to needing powerful HVAC systems to keep temperature and humidity within range, they also require an incredible amount of energy for specialized lighting.
- Odor Management – With a high concentration of marijuana plants, grow rooms are notorious for producing an overwhelming aroma within a small space.
The ideal HVAC system must help solve, if not mitigate, the problems that arise from operating a grow room.
