Why need grow room hvac system?

Global cannabis cultivation market size is expected to reach USD 358.8 billion by 2027, expanding at a CAGR of 14.3% from 2020 to 2027 according to latest report. More and more country and states are going to legalize cannabis for medical use and recreational use. Market demand for cannabis continues to increase and more and more growers are going to expand businesses by adding new facilities or augmenting existing ones. In order to have stable yield and much better quality cannabis, more and more growers choose the grow room for cannabis indoor farming, which supply a lot of advantages. Cannabis indoor grow provides growers a great balance between the operation cost and maximizing yield, which become an increasingly popular option for cultivators.

10 key parameters of cannabis grow health and vitality

HVAC, lighting, water and nutrients are the main inputs that determine both the grow cost and prolific of yield. It’s easy to control elements for cannabis growing such as light, soil, nutrients and water, but it is difficult to control the air humidity, temperature, CO2 and airflow, etc., which also affect the cannabis grow quality and yields very much.

Plant diseases

Plant diseases are a recurring problem with grow room cannabis production. Cannabis plants are especially subject to foliage diseases due to the high humidity and tightly packed growth. The common cannabis diseases are powdery mildew and gray mold. It is necessary to introduce the IPM program that includes monitoring, physical controls, resistant species, biopesticides, and least-toxic chemical controls. The physical controls include temperature, sanitation, ventilation, air filtration, and irradiation with UV-C light, etc.

Powdery mildew and botrytis are encouraged by humidity, which thrives in high humidity (>90%) and cool temperatures (60°F) at night, followed by low humidity (40% to 70%) and hot (80°F) day time temperatures. Keeping temperatures and humidity stable from fluctuating by heating at night and dehumidifying all around the day can effectively reduce the incidence of disease, which is the main job of Altaqua grow dehumidifier hvac system.

Medical cannabis grow became legal less than thirty years, and recreational cannabis is not even five years old. So most of the indoor growers still lacks good practices and have little knowledge about the interplay between grow room hvac systems and the science of cannabis growing. Altaqua grow room hvac system is specially designed to help you grow cannabis up to purity standards and yield a consistent crop with our combination of experience in hvac system design, indoor horticulture, and the emerging cannabis industry.

Why not choose air conditioner or dehumidifier instead of grow room hvac system?

Cannabis has a unique optimal growing profile, and temperature, relative humidity, CO2 assimilation and air cleanliness all need to be optimized in order to promote plant growth and vitality. So it requires a unique hvac cultivation facility design, no matter the air conditioner or traditional dehumidifier can not optimize these four core components and help to grow to your full potential.

Temperature

CO2 level

Relative humidity

Air cleanness

Air conditioner

Air conditioner is designed to control the temperature with dehumidifying as an afterthought, which gets the coils cold enough to lower the air temperature, but not cold enough to condense water out of the air. While sensible demands in the space are being easily met, humidity levels are out of control. A dehumidifier is also one-dimensional for dehumidifying and does not deliver the cross-functional benefits of environmental control.

Dehumidifier

It is impossible to achieve optimized growing conditions is impossible by using the independent units to heat, cool, and dehumidify in an unorganized system. That will result in high operating costs and can’t help the plants to reach their maximum metabolic rates, and sometimes even facing the risk of contamination by molds and mildews when humidity cannot be controlled.

The indoor cannabis grow room is a vibrant living ecosystem, with energy pouring into the plants from lights and water and pouring out from the plants in the form of water vapor. Without optimal vapor pressure deficit between the cannabis and the environment, photosynthesis suffers and the risk of pest and pathogen infection increases. In order to deal well with the latent heat and sensible heat for better transpiration of cannabis, we combine dehumidifying and air conditioning into one integral unit, which realizes a consolidated control system for grow room temperature, humidity, CO2 enrichment and ventilation.

Working principle

This integrated hvac system succeed to deliver precise grow conditions and recycles the heat created by the dehumidification process to efficiently reheat the cold discharge air and keep the space temperature consistent. It makes up for the shortcomings of separate air conditioners and independent dehumidifiers, such as uneven air distribution forming microclimates and condensation providing the opportunity for pests and pathogens to thrive, which also reducing capital outlay and streamlining team member training.

Comparing with the limitations of the traditional hvac products, like the lack of flexibility, scalability and redundancy, this intelligent alternative hvac system is expected to become the leading unitary approach across North American cannabis grow market. It can commence with the minimum capacity for start-up and then add more units in the future as required, which doesn’t need to be built to full size for day one, especially suitable for some projects that the facility will be in partial occupancy for a long time.

Choose the right size of grow room hvac syetem

Grow room hvac system won’t be right if it is too big or if too small, and we need to choose the right sizing with enough capacity to manage the grow environment and meet the production goals without a huge electricity bill. So how to figure out which model Altaqua grow room hvac system for your project?

First, we must understand that the cannabis grow room is a complex environment hosting many living organisms, including plants, people and both bad and good microbes, as well as many processes that are constantly adding or removing energy from the overall ecosystem. Then, we need to consider the following factors of your grow room.

Grow room five elements

Energy balance

Heat is generated by working employees, grow lights, fan motors, water pumps, CO2 burners, and other equipment running. Understanding how much energy will be in the system is key to calculate the capacity hvac system needs to balance the equation.

Plant density

A dense canopy pairing with poorly circulating systems will create microclimates that feature higher temperatures or relative humidity, which is also an important factor to decide how much capacity your grow hvac system needs.

Daily watering

Water transports nutrients through a plant and gives it a turgor. Almost all of the water you give to a plant’s roots comes out as water vapor via transpiration. As the plants grow and add biomass, more humidity will be created by the plants. It is important to know the amount of water needs to be removed from the atmosphere.

Project Layout

Different grow rooms provide different floor square footage, walls, ceiling feet high, and grow racks. In order to maintain the unique consistent temperature and humidity level for grow room, it needs to build the right duct-work and airflow layout to deliver air and remove moisture from the right spots to ensure microclimate is eliminated.
