Essential Facts to Know Regarding Dehumidification
One of the keys to successful cannabis cultivation is maintaining the proper level of humidity within the grow room. In many environments, this requires the cultivator to install a dehumidifier to ensure proper dehumidification. It is important to understand humidity control and how it relates to your growing practices. Though CA cannabis industry insurance is required in the state, your commercial property insurance may not protect you from losses due to inappropriate humidity control indoors.
Here are four facts to keep in mind as you assess your dehumidification needs.
Consult an Expert
As you begin to plan for your infrastructure needs, it’s a good idea to get help. Cultivating CBD on a larger scale requires knowledge from numerous fields. Don’t be afraid to ask for assistance to make sure you get it right! Be sure to talk to someone who has the experience you need. Consult experts on humidity and humidity control when you want to get information on what type of dehumidifier you need for your grow room environment.
Gain an Understanding of Dehumidifiers
When you begin discussing your needs, it is imperative to have an understanding of what your consultant is discussing. Boost your knowledge on the following terms:
- SEER rating
- Heat load
- Vapor pressure deficit
- Sensible heat
- Latent heat
When you are armed with an understanding of these terms, you are better equipped to determine which dehumidifier is best for your grow room conditions.
Know What You Need
Geography matters when you cultivate cannabis in a greenhouse, while it is unimportant for climate-controlled indoor grow rooms. In a greenhouse, the type of humidity control you need varies with the local climate conditions. The engineering of a greenhouse is simple in form, and there are no built-in HVAC systems in place. Thus, a grower in Southern California will have different humidity control needs than a grower in Northern California, and the types of systems needed will vary accordingly.
An indoor grow room maintains a consistent climate year-round. The building is constructed with insulation and a fully incorporated HVAC system. If your grow room is located indoors, your climate control considerations have more to do with settings than equipment, no matter where you live. Regardless of which structure you use for dehumidification, California cannabis insurance requirements state that cultivators must carry the appropriate coverage for their business.
Take Your Time
Take the time you need to plan and build out your grow room. It is costly to set up a business, and there are areas where compromise is not a good option. It is better to start small and grow over time if you have the money necessary to invest in a good HVAC system. Skimping on adequate climate control can mean a loss of crops, which translates into profit loss. You also want to be sure that you can procure a level of cannabis insurance coverage that adequately protects you and your company from losses, damages, and liabilities.
