A common issue many growers experience is preventing temperatures from rising too high. Fans and blowers are a great start, but often times aren't enough. For this reason, it is important to install a grow room air conditioner.
Why use an air conditioner?
The ideal temperature range for plants is 70-80 degrees Fahrenheit. This should be a little higher for seedlings and clones, and slightly lower during flowering and harvest.
When plants are exposed to excessive temperatures for prolonged periods, it can lead to a host of problems, including:
- Powdery mildew
- Root rot and other molds
- Slowed growth
- Reduced potency and smell of buds
Using a ceiling mounted air conditioner allows growers to save floor space, and manage heat more effectively.
If you are growing in a grow tent or a small grow room, you will be better off with a portable air conditioner. Likewise, commercial warehouses or greenhouses will be better off with a commercial A/C.
You may also be interested in the mini-split air conditioner, as this is the most efficient and popular air conditioner for grow rooms.
