Dehumidifiers & Dehumidifying Equipment for Cannabis Drying Rooms

Humidity, in excess, is the most common enemy of indoor cannabis climate. High levels of humidity creates the ideal environment for mold and mildew to grow and thrive, reducing indoor air quality.

High moisture and poor indoor air quality (IAQ) can decimate entire crops in indoor grow rooms, posing a financial threat to indoor cannabis farmers.

Desert Aire has developed and released a solution to remove excessive moisture in the indoor cannabis HVAC application. While currently the leading manufacturer of high performance, energy-efficient, refrigeration-based dehumidifiers and dedicated outdoor air systems, Desert Aire’s ingenuity has enabled them to address important dehumidification issues that threaten the production of medical cannabis.

Indoor Cannabis Grow Room Systems

The ideal growing environment requires properly maintained temperature and humidity levels, and air movement that is only possible with the appropriate equipment and controls.

When indoor air quality quality factors are not properly considered, maintained, or controlled, moisture can suffocate the cannabis plants of quality air leading to mold, fungus, and mildew, destroying valuable crops. In addition, when the proper climate is not maintained it can impact the plant growth cycle reducing product yield and impacting revenues.

Typically growers add portable dehumidifiers to the room to combat excessive condensation. These units are independent of the building’s HVAC system, cause additional heat generation while simultaneously removing moisture, forcing farmers, growers and dryers to oversize their AC units in an attempt to compensate for the extra load. This inefficient process drains not only energy, but also profits.

The Desert Aire’s sophisticated GrowAire™dehumidification system provides complete climate control and adds several key features, including:

  • the ability to control the discharge temperature,
  • adjust the dehumidification capacity,
  • and anticipate the changes that quickly occur in an indoor grow room. 

GrowAire™ provides you with the predictable, stable environment needed to maximize yield, achieve desired results and use energy efficiently, being the proactive approach to avoid any pitfalls when it comes to proper climate control systems.
