Setting up the grow room’s proper ventilation system is one of the crucial steps in ensuring a successful indoor grow. If done right, this system should effectively remove hot, stale air and supply fresh air to the environment, which in turn, provides CO2 to the crops without CO2 enrichment systems.
These ventilation systems can be as basic as a few fans or as elaborate as a series of air conditioners, dehumidifier, blowers, and atmospheric controllers. Despite what ventilation system is utilized, the purpose remains the same: to keep humidity and temperature in the space within the preferred consistent range.
In terms of whole house fans, QuietCool is one of the top brand choices all across America. QuietCool CL-4700 allows cooled outdoor air in the grow space through the home, windows, and attic space. It approaches home ventilation in a different way, thoroughly ventilating and cooling both the home and attic.
Intake and Exhaust Fans
Intake and exhaust fans are part of any ventilation system, regardless of how basic or complex the set up is.
The intake fan’s primary job is to draw fresh air from the outside, may it be outside the house or just a space outside the growing area. Growers typically filter the incoming air using HEPA filters or nylon stockings. This is to reduce the likelihood of insects or pathogens contaminations.
On the other hand, the exhaust fan’s purpose is to remove the heated, stale air from the grow space. Also, it removes odors as the air is exhausted when connected to a carbon filter.
In most cases, these fans are set up to work in conjunction with each other. The exhaust fan is normally rather larger than the intake fan to ensure a slight negative pressure. This is to make sure all odors are forced out through the exhaust when exiting the grow area.
Both fans can be connected to thermostatic controls or set up on timers. In terms of controls, Thermostatic controls offer more since growers can set the preferred temperature and the fans automatically turn on or off as needed.
