The All-New Covert Carbon Filter Complete Ventilation and Odor Control Kits are the perfect solution to poor ventilation, excess heat and unwanted odor!
The Covert 4" Ventilation and Odor Control Kit is ideal for removing unwanted odor and excess heat from a 4' x 4' or smaller grow tent, grow cabinet or grow room. This package can be used as a ventilation system for air cooled reflectors or as a stand alone system for extra cooling in high heat or problem areas.
The rule of thumb is to replace the air in your grow area every 3 minutes to keep your grow environment well ventilated with and fresh, cool air for your plants.
Note: To determine your cubic feet of your grow area (volume), use this equation - Length x Width x Height = Cubic Feet.
There are a number of correct ways to set-up your ventilation system in you grow area. Here at Hydrobuilder we recommend mounting your carbon filter at the ceiling of your grow area for the most efficient heat removal.

Covert 4" Complete Ventilation and Odor Control Kit Setup Guide
Proper ventilation is essential to healthy plant growth, and proper filtration is equally essential to clean the air and kill all odors. You should be replacing the air in your grow space about once every 5 minutes when the lights are on. To calculate the CFM performance you need to properly ventilate your grow space use the following formula: (Grow Space Width X Length X Height) / 5 = Recommended CFM.
Please note that CFM performance of a fan is affected by the length and path of ducting and the use of a carbon filter. Therefore when using a carbon filter you must add an additional 20% to the CFM recommendation to account for the loss. So the formula when using a carbon filter would be: ((Grow Space Width X Length X Height) / 5) X 1.2 = Recommended CFM.
With 25ft of high performance ducting included, you have plenty to create a custom routing that best fits your installation. The included Hydrobuilder variable fan speed controller helps to give you more control over CFM and fan noise.
Your ventilation can be set up in a number of ways. Here are some possible configurations:

Growing (indoors) without knowing! Review by biQ MD Research
The Covert 4" Complete Ventilation and Odor Control Kit is perfect for "scrubbing" the air clean and quietly.
The only tools you'll need is a pair of wire cutters if you are planning on cutting a small section of the Ideal Air Silver/Black Flex Ducting for connecting the Gale Force 4" Inline Fan (exhaust section) & carbon filter (piece 1) and the ducting (from your grow space or tent) to the fan (intake / piece 2)
You'll need a screwdriver for the ducting clamps or get some zip ties to secure the ducting around the fan & carbon filter.
