For indoor growers, few things are as frustrating as encountering problems with grow room cooling. A reliable cooling system is essential for maintaining optimal conditions in your grow space. When your AC system malfunctions, the temperature in your grow room can quickly become unbearable. In this article, we’ll explore strategies for tackling cooling system issues and provide some valuable tips to keep your grow room environment in check.
Know Your Circuit Breaker Box
Before delving into grow room cooling solutions, it’s crucial to know the location of your circuit breaker box. Being familiar with its whereabouts can save precious time in the event of an emergency. Now, let’s explore some effective ways to manage cooling system problems.
Monitoring and Alarms
Investing in a monitoring system, like the wireless thermometer system from Acurite, can be a game-changer. These systems provide real-time data on temperature and humidity levels in your grow room. They can even send text messages and emails if set parameters are breached. Having this information at your fingertips allows you to react promptly to any issues and make necessary adjustments.
Advanced Control Systems
Advanced control systems, such as those offered by Smart Bee Controllers and other companies, provide even more precise control over your grow room environment. While we haven’t yet worked with these systems, they are worth considering for growers seeking an advanced solution.
Creating a Protocol
Having a well-defined protocol for handling AC system failures is a smart practice. When you walk into a hot grow room, the first step is to assess the situation. If the temperature has soared above 100 degrees, it’s crucial to act swiftly. Turn off the lights immediately and open the doors, positioning fans to exhaust the heat outside. This rapid response can prevent your plants from wilting in the extreme heat.
If the temperature is below 100 degrees, you can opt for a more conservative approach. Dim the lights by turning off some of them and reducing the light ballasts to their lowest settings. It’s a challenging decision to interrupt the light schedule, but it’s far better than risking the health of your precious buds.
Opening doors and using fans to exhaust heat is the quickest way to bring down the temperature in the grow room. If you have exhaust fans installed, manually activate them to help expel the excess heat.
Check the Circuit Breaker
In some cases, grow room cooling issues can be resolved by resetting the circuit breaker for your AC system. This simple step often resolves about half of the problems associated with mini-split systems. If you’re unsure about the procedure or need assistance, don’t hesitate to contact us.
