A key, and often over looked part of indoor grows is air ventilation and circulation. Improper temperature & humidity can be detrimental to your plants, causing a variety of issues from mold, to foliage loss, and if extreme cases are met you can even lose your plants. The new Smart Inline fan from Covert is here to help take the stress, and bad air, out of the equation! Equipped with a temperature/humidity sensor and all new smart technology, this fan does the thinking for you, so you can worry about other parts of your grow!
Proper ventilation can also help reduce smells emitted from your grow, and for those who need, or prefer, to stay under the radar this is a constant battle. The high CFM raiding ensures you can maximize air movement, pushing more odor infused air through your carbon filter and out of your space.

Not only is this fan the perfect all in one inline fan kit, you can control up to two fans off of one controller! Whether you have two rooms to monitor, or just a ton of air to move, the Smart Fan from Covert makes it easy!
Included in the box:
The controller can be programmed to adjust fan speeds to respond to varying high and low temperatures, and humidity. For ventilation applications, the controller can be set to run continuously, or triggered to run at customizable speeds when given power, due to its backup memory capability. Additional features includes a countdown timer, alarm system, and eco-mode. Includes detachable 12-foot precision probe that is water resistant. This EC smart controller can power and control 2 inline duct fans of any size, including the full Covert Smart Inline Fan line up.
Quiet, Energy Efficient Operation
As mentioned, this inline fan features an EC-motor, rather than the noisy inefficient AC motors and DC Brush motors. This technology enables motors to be able to run smoothly at extremely low RPM speeds without generating additional heat or noise. In addition, the duct fan uses a mixed flow design using a stator blade and dual hydrodynamic wind circles. This gives it a high static pressure rating, enabling it to deliver airflow even in applications where air movement is being restricted, increasing efficiency. Save money, quietly!
Equipped with it's own smart controller and probes, the Covert Smart Inline Fan is made for those looking to automate their grow. These fans utilize EC motors, which are much quieter than your standard DC and AC motors, as well as much more efficient. The ducts and frame are made from a high grade plastic material which is held together with heavy-duty metal hoops, keeping the fan light without fragility. Each inline fan has a sturdy, metal bracket attached for easy hanging as well!
Air-cooled HID light fixtures have duct flanges you can easily connect a fan and ducting to. You can see an example setup in the diagram below. With this setup, the inline fan pulls air through the carbon filter, then through the light fixture and finally out of the tent.
The next step to improve your for air-cooled lighting set-up is to use a separate in-line fan just for the lighting ventilation. This will make both your light cooling and your carbon filter work more efficiently.

When using CO2 producing equipment inside of a tent, you want to ensure the CO2 produced doesn't escape. In this situation, you'd want to use a “closed loop” system which will filter the air of odors and VOC's by recirculating the air in the tent through the carbon filter via inline fan. To avoid excess heat build up inside your grow, it is highly recommended to utilize LED or air-cooled lighting. Air conditioning is recommended for larger tents using CO2.
The Closed Loop method is great, but certainly more advanced. If you want to learn more about CO2 for growing we have a great article here CO2 for Grow Tents
The following examples show several combinations of ventilation setups and how a typical set up may look as you start your grow. There are multiple ways to set up the perfect grow for you though, and that if you need any help getting propped up, don't hesitate to give us a call!
