Floor & Pedestal Fans
Why do I need to use floor and pedestal fans in my grow room?
As a grower, you must know that your indoor growing space needs to be adequately ventilated. A ventilation system consists of inline fans, shutter exhaust fans, and sometimes a carbon filter to reduce odor.
There are several advantages of circulating air within your growing space. When your plants are exposed to a steady, gentle breeze, they develop stronger stems, are better protected against pests, and get a good supply of fresh air.
Floor and pedestal fans are like oscillating fans. They provide a gentle breeze and help circulate the air inside your grow area. These fans take up floor space, so installing a clip-on or wall-mount fan is better if you are restricted by space.
How to use a fan in the grow room
You will need a fan speed controller to use a fan in your grow room. With this device, you can automate your fan speed for each interval, leading to higher efficiency. For instance, your fans can be programmed to turn off or slow down when your grow lights are off. Some fans come with a built-in speed control feature, which reduces the number of devices you need.
The power of the fan is determined by its cubic feet per minute (CFM) value. The larger your growing space, the higher the value of CFM you will need.
