For anyone considering a hydroponic setup or indoor grow room, controlling the temperature is important to any grower. Grow lights tend to make the room hot, and subsequently it can affect your crop or their yields. So how do you get all that hot air out of the room?
Usually you will want to have some sort of ventilation to remove hot air and circulate cool air back into the room. A simple exhaust fan, and vent can usually do the trick, but what if you need more temperature control? What if you have to many lights and simple ventilation won’t reduce the temperature? Many growers are now turning to mini split air conditioners to help control climate in grow rooms and hydroponic grows.
Since a mini split air conditioner is relatively easy to setup, it can easily be installed onto almost any room, and also has enough power to minimize the heat caused by having numerous grow lamps. Not only will it reduce heat, but it will also give you complete control over the temperature of the room, providing the perfect climate for your plants.
For some, self-installation is important since you may not want an HVAC installer snooping around your setup, and that’s another key to mini split systems. Since they are relatively easy to install, generally you can complete most of the work yourself, meaning you get professional climate control, without the need of having a professional install the system or see your grow room.
