Feel Confident In Your Cannabis HVAC Equipment Selections
Consultation is a critical element of successfully purchasing and deploying HVAC equipment for a cannabis cultivation facility. And when it comes to your cannabis HVAC equipment design, it’s never too early to start. HVAC is one of the most capital intensive systems for indoor cannabis cultivation, often with the longest lead times. With InSpire’s years of experience optimizing HVAC systems to meet the unique needs of the cannabis industry, we can help you plan for the most challenging parts of growing cannabis indoors— temperature and relative humidity control, biosecurity, and maximizing biomass and product quality. We have a wide variety of equipment types, form factors, and sizes and can optimize the HVAC equipment for your project based on budget, lead time, facility configuration, power constraints, geography and risk tolerance.
There are many benefits to working with InSpire for all of your cannabis HVAC selection and sizing needs.
WORK WITH OUR EXPERIENCED TEAM TO UNDERSTAND WHY YOUR CANNABIS HVAC SYSTEM IS CRITICAL TO COMPETE IN TODAY’S MARKET
Growing cannabis successfully is a game of limiting factors and requires a very well thought out indoor cultivation facility design that balances all of the energy inputs that go into the plants – photons (lighting), the combination of temperature and relative humidity (also known as VPD, or Vapor Pressure Deficit), in-room airflow, CO2 enrichment, water and nutrients (irrigation / fertigation). Having a deep understanding of how these inputs interact, and the quantities of each input you are planning to provide to each room is critical to getting an HVAC system that isn’t your limiting factor.
Standard commercial HVAC equipment is designed for human-centric comfort and won’t allow you to optimize the four core components of cannabis HVAC system design: temperature, dehumidification, CO2 regulation, and biosecurity.
Our equipment can help you achieve goals like
- 24-hour VPD control – the backbone of environmental crop steering and maximizing biomass and product quality
- Proper grow facility HVAC placement, orientation, and strategy
- Maximize space to optimize canopy square footage
- Decrease time to market with industry best lead times
- Efficient energy recovery to drive down operational expenses and remain profitable during price compression
- GMP certification requirements
- Biosecurity needs for pest and pathogen prevention

The Benefits And Challenges of Growing Cannabis Indoors
Maximum Biomass & Chemotype Expression
With integrated temperature, relative humidity, and CO2 enrichment control, combined with active air distribution delivering consistent airflow to the plant canopy, indoor growers using InSpire HVAC systems can control the environment to meet the exact needs of their cultivars.
The Growing Room Must Be Kept Clean
Poor HVAC system design can lead to pests, pathogens, and lost crops. To keep your cannabis plants and employees safe, you’ll need proper control of temperature, relative humidity, and airflow.
Increased Efficiency & OpEX Savings
Growing consistently high-quality cannabis requires a careful balance of energy inputs. When balance is achieved, so is efficiency. Photon absorption is maximized when transpiration and carbon assimilation are at optimized levels.
Higher Overhead Costs
Indoor growers pay for things that outdoor growers don’t have to— like light and conditioned air. Good cannabis HVAC equipment can reduce grower’s cost of production so they can push profit margins when the price of cannabis is high, and weather the storm when prices are low.
Pest and pathogen contamination lead to crop loss and is greatly mitigated with the ability to achieve and maintain stable temperature, relative humidity, and CO2 set points during day and night light cycles and the transition between day and night.
Bad System Designs
Poorly designed indoor cultivation facilities that aren’t tailored to cannabis’ specific needs will result in lower yields and inferior product. Stable, predictable temperatures and relative humidity are needed to meet the unique environmental needs of the cannabis plant throughout the entire lifecycle.
Grow Local, Shop Local
With a quality indoor cultivation facility design, cannabis can be grown where its customers are, which helps ensure fresh product and reduces the amount of resources needed to deliver the product.
Without the proper control over temperature and relative humidity throughout the plant’s lifecycle, your cannabinoid content and terpene expression may be at risk— ruining the unique qualities of the cultivars you’ve invested in.
With the right cannabis grow facility HVAC design, you can eliminate or control many of the challenges associated with indoor growing. By using our HVAC cannabis system selection and sizing skills to guide your project from the beginning, you can help ensure the vitality of your plants from season to season, no matter what cultivar you’re growing, all while keeping costs down.
