The importance of air quality cannot be emphasized enough. Just as you filter the water in your hydroponic system, filtering the air your plants breathe is just as important to improve the quality of your harvest.
You need surface and air purifiers to remove airborne particles such as dust, bacteria, smoke, pollen, mold, and viruses. These free-standing machines are ideal for areas where the risk of contamination is high such as trimming, drying, and packaging areas.
These machines suck in the air inside a grow tent / grow room, and then force it thru a HEPA filter to purify it. Using these purifiers in combination with an intake system and exhaust system helps get rid of all odors and pathogens.
HEPA certified filters remove 99.97% of particles more than 0.3 micrometres in size. These filters are installed not just in grow tents and grow rooms, but also in air crafts, cars, homes, and medical facilities.
Filter-less purifiers, as their name suggests do not have a filter. They simply draw in air through the water and distribute the particles in a collector which is pretty easy to clean. They do not produce any noise and are 10x more efficient than conventional purifiers.
This will depend on the size of your grow room, the number of plants you are growing and the type of these plants. You should measure your grow room in both square feet and cubic feet and then read the specs on the purifier to make a choice.
