As an indoor grower, you must be aware of the need for intake and exhaust fans to bring in the fresh air and expel stagnant air from your grow area. However, there’s something else that you should know. Circulating or oscillating fans are necessary for your grow space due to several reasons. Let’s discuss them briefly.
How to choose the right oscillating fan for my grow room?
Your choice of the oscillating fan will be dictated by how big your garden is and which equipment you use. For instance, a bigger growing space will require a bigger fan. Also, if you have a high-powered CO2 device or grow lights, there will be more heat in your grow tent or room. In this case, as well, you will need a bigger fan.
Some oscillating fans have a built-in speed controller that let you automate fan speed without using a separate speed controller. If there is no built-in feature in your fan, you can use a separate fan speed controller or a multi-function grow room controller to program your fans.
When you choose your oscillating fan, you must ensure that its cubic feet per minute (CFM) value is equal to or greater than your grow room’s size. For instance, if your grow room has a 500’ cubic growing space, you should choose a 1000 CFM fan.
Why should I use an oscillating fan in my grow room?
Oscillating fans in your grow rooms are necessary because they help circulate the air. This helps control the humidity and temperature of your grow room or grow tent. Did you know that a steady, gentle breeze is beneficial for your plants? While it seems like the contrary is true, the fact is that when your plants are exposed to breezes, they develop stronger stems that are better at supporting the heavy buds that you hope will spring up during the flowering stage. That’s not all a steady breeze also helps keep the pests away from your plants. When the air around your plants remains stagnant, more pests are likely to develop.
