When you decide to grow indoors, chances are you’ll have been inundated with advice from well-meaning friends who share the same hobby. Unfortunately though, what’s been good for their indoor plants is not necessarily the same as what will be good for yours. There are a variety of things you need to consider when choosing to create the perfect environment for your indoor plants, and one of them is having the area at exactly the right temperature and humidity for optimum growth. This is why you’ll need to look carefully into hydroponic climate systems, and choosing the right one can be tricky.
We at GrowGeneration take hydroponics extremely seriously, and we have a wealth of knowledge that you can use if you’d like to discuss your needs. Whether you’re just starting out, or are having some obstacles when it comes to ventilation and temperature, we have a range of products perfect for the job.
Controlling the climate in grow room
Controlling the climate in your grow room is something you will need to consider carefully. However, it does not need to be difficult. With the right products, you can make sure that you have the optimal temperature and humidity in your grow environment.
GrowGeneration has you covered with different humidifiers and dehumidifiers, as well as temperature control. Our Quest Dual 225 overhead dehumidifier works well overhead and at ground level. This dehumidifier is very efficient and will save most growers around $2,000 per year on their electric bill. We also have several different fans, like the 12” Active Air Floor Fan with a motor that is designed for continuous use. If you are striving for continuous automation of your grow room, we have a wide variety of different climate control systems, ranging from air conditioners to environment control systems that streamline your approach to growing.
What sort of climate control system is going to be right for you?
There are a number of different options available when purchasing a climate control system for your grow room. One of your key decisions should be whether to select a closed-loop room or an air exchange system. There is no right or wrong; it simply depends on your needs, budget, and how much control you want.
For example, an air exchange set-up is more affordable and it is very easy to set up. With this system, you extract stale air and draw fresh air in so you can keep your CO2, humidity, and temperature levels under control. Your set-up will dictate the sort of equipment you need. At a minimum, you need a heater and an extraction system. Some optional extras include CO2 equipment, humidifier, dehumidifier, carbon filter, air conditioning, and additional spot cooling and air circulation fans.
The other option you may want to consider is going for a closed-loop set-up. With this approach, the grow room is almost fully sealed off. This means hardly any air leaves and hardly any air will enter. You do not need to exchange air; you focus on treating the air within the grow room. This means you will have full control over the temperature, humidity, and CO2 levels so you can ensure your plants are growing in the ideal climate. You also do not have to worry about any humidity or temperature fluctuations, and pests will struggle to get in as well.
As you may imagine, the costs associated with this approach do tend to be a little bit more expensive. You will need to purchase a dehumidifier, CO2 equipment, a heater, and air conditioning. Optional extras include a small extractor kit, air circulation fans, a carbon filter, and a humidifier. If you need help with setting up your grow room, please do not hesitate to get in touch for more details.
Odor Control Filters For Your Grow Room
Sometimes, grow rooms smell foul because there is too much water in the soil. This can cause bacteria to thrive in the soil, creating a smell similar to ammonia or sulfur. GrowGeneration has a wide variety of odor filters available to help you fight off that foul smell. Here are some of the different types of odor control options available for your growing room:
- Can-Lite Filters are designed to eliminate VOCs, gases, and odors from the air.
- Atmosphere Pro-Lite Filters are manufactured with Australian activated carbon to remove the majority of organic compounds from the air that may produce odor.
- We also carry other carbon filters that can help neutralize odors in your growing environment.
Grow Room Fans for every environment
Fans are built for a variety of different environments and getting the right one is a must if you want your plants to thrive. For this reason we’ve set up a filter so that you can choose to view only the products that will fit your purpose.
Step One: Choose the Air Movement Requirement of our Fans
Depending on the amount of air movement you require, we have a variety of different options. To determine the type of fan that you need, simply figure the size of the grow room that you have. If your grow room is 10’ x 10’ x 10’, your grow room is 1000 cubic feet. If you need to circulate the air in your grow room once every three minutes, you’ll need a fan that is capable of doing 333 cfm. This will give you the optimum air movement requirement and then you can filter your requirements via this, and move onto the next step.
Step Two: Choose the type of fan that you need
If you are looking for a grow room fan that will ventilate the air, one of our extractor fans is a good fit for you. The other types of oscillating fans will help control the air flow within your grow room. These are available in any type of size, most commonly 6” to 12”.
Step Three: Choose your hydroponics fan
What you’ll be left with is a selection of fans that will entirely suit your requirements. However, if you’re not sure about what it is you need, feel free to call us to discuss your options, and we’ll be happy to recommend the perfect hydroponic fans for your budget, room and requirements. If you know what you need already, ordering is simple, and we pride ourselves on shipping quickly, and offering great value for your money, meaning you can’t go wrong when choosing hydroponics fans from GrowGeneration.
