Commercial Dehumidifiers: Why They’re Important for Your Growing Operation?
Every experienced grower is familiar with the importance of having a dehumidifier. However, very few of them understand why they need to have a grow room dehumidifier that has been specifically designed to increase both the quality and quantity of their yield.
If your grow room is lacking the proper dehumidification equipment, your crops will ultimately suffer. If you’ve been simply sticking a home dehumidifier - or even worse, a variety of portable units - into your grow room, you should expect your crops to never reach their full potential. Those units were not designed to handle and effectively dehumidify a large room of plants. They were built to dehumidify a room full of people. While it may seem like a small difference, the impact that it has on your crops is unmistakable.
Long story short, moisture matters.
However, if you’re looking for an explanation on the big difference between the average dehumidifier and one that was specifically created to benefit your valuable crops, we’re happy to explain.
By regulating our body temperature, human beings add approximately ten pounds of water into the air every single day. Likewise, a plant, on average, will add approximately eight pounds of water to the air every single day.
When someone builds a dehumidifier for your home, it’s built to keep up with however many people are living inside the home. Factoring in different elements such as dishwashers and daily hot showers, you’re looking to remove about 100 pounds of water from your house each day. And that’s for a large home filled with 5-7 people.
If your commercialized grow house is filled with up to 100 plants, each of which are dispersing eight pounds of water into the air each day, you’re looking at having to remove 800 pounds of water from your facility every single day. A home dehumidifier or a portable unit will never be able to effectively handle that type of workload.
It’s also important to recognize that home dehumidifiers and portable units are designed to remove moisture at typical household temperatures. They won’t be able to work efficiently at the low, fall-like temperatures that plants typically require to produce a flower.
As a result, the current dehumidifier in your grow house has been running constantly in order to maintain a balanced environment. As it’s running under thermal conditions that these home dehumidifiers simply can’t handle, it’s also facing the heavy workload of a thriving grow house filled with dozens of moisture-producing crops.
With these factors in mind, it’s easy to recognize the importance of investing in a dehumidifier that’s ready to work for you. An efficient grow room dehumidifier will help cultivators like yourself maximize your yield and your profits.
