Cannabis Climate System by Enerdes®

Growing cannabis for medical purposes on an industrial scale is a challenging and meticulous business. In order to obtain a constant and high quality medical marijuana crop, advanced climate technology is required.

At Enerdes we offer a broad range of air handling units for legal cannabis growing greenhouses and vertical farms, from simple and efficient to high-tech solutions.

The Enerdes expertise

Cannabis Climate Control Air Conditioning

Enerdes offers the ideal climate control for every stage of industrial cannabis growing:

  • Nursery rooms
  • Growing areas
  • Processing areas
  • Drying rooms

Our greenhouse climate installations provide air with the optimal temperature, humidity conditions and air circulation for growing cannabis on an industrial scale. 

Enerdes take the special requirements for cannabis growing into account, such as:

  • Evaporation of water by the plants
  • Heat effects of the growing lights
  • Air filtration
  • Odour control

    Enerdes has engineered and developed air conditioning installations for cannabis climate control that are suitable for warm or cold, dry or wet climates and every combination in between. 

    Automatic Cannabis Climate Control

    For the cultivation of medical cannabis, the lights-on and lights-off cycle is of utmost importance. The lighting has a huge influence on the temperature and on plant evaporation and thus humidity. Therefore, industrial cannabis greenhouses require an automated cannabis climate control system.

    It is very important to realize that accurate greenhouse climate conditions during both lights-on and lights-off periods, are crucial to optimal plant growth and consistent cannabis quality.

    Enerdes air handling units (AHU) are controlled based on sensor information of temperature and humidity:

    • The sensors are placed at many locations spread over the greenhouse area
    • Each AHU adjusts its heating, cooling, humidifying and dehumidifying capacity based on the air conditioning requirements of its allocated area
    • Set points for temperature, humidity and air movement may be changed during the crop life cycle
    • Set point adjustment and accurate control throughout the day

    The result?

    Perfect and homogeneous growing conditions at every location in the greenhouse!

    Enerdes provides a complete solution for cannabis climate control that will be engineered and optimized to your specific greenhouse requirements.

    Cannabis Climate Control Heating and Cooling

    There are many aspects that make cannabis HVAC a climate control challenge and that is why it is wise to have an expert company design your climate control. 

    Enerdes has decades of experience in greenhouse climate installations and has completed many projects in medical cannabis related industries. 

    3 example factors that determine cannabis climate control:

    • Water evaporation:
      The large amount of water that the plants evaporate. The air in the greenhouse must be dehumidified and compensate for the latent energy load.
    • Heat effects of growing lights:
      The large production of heat created by the growing lights when they are ON, which is completely absent when they are OFF. This is sensible energy load.
    • Outdoor climate:
      Heat and cold from the outside

    When selecting HVAC equipment for growing cannabis, we first look at the outdoor climate your greenhouse operates in. Depending on the temperature and humidity conditions outside, it can be determined how much capacity is required for heating, cooling and (de)humidifying your greenhouse. 

    At many locations, the climate has seasonal changes. Some greenhouses may need to be cooled in the summer and heated in the winter. Enerdes can supply air handling units that very efficiently do both.

    Regulations for Industrial Cannabis Cultivation

    Not only air conditioning is important when growing cannabis on an industrial scale. Many areas will have strict regulations for medical cannabis cultivation operations.

     Several important areas to consider are:

    1. Air filtration, HEPA filter grade
    2. Fresh air intake and air exhausts
    3. Odour control

    1. Air filtration
    The HEPA filter grade is important when one wishes to clean the air from even the smallest particles like viruses and bacteria. It requires powerful fans because the pressure drop over such a fine grade filter is significant. Besides climate control, Enerdes air handling units include filtration with several filter grades, depending on the customer’s wishes.

    2. Fresh air intake and air exhausts
    Any professional cannabis greenhouse operation will be very careful with fresh air intake and air exhaust. It is essential to be able to control the fresh air and exhaust air volumes and filter the fresh air for high crop quality and prevention of mold, mildew and plant diseases in your greenhouse.

    3. Odour control
    At the air exhaust, a commercial cannabis cultivation must consider odour control. This can be achieved through activated carbon and charcoal filters or through air purifiers. 

    All these systems are engineered and supplied by Enerdes and work together very well with the other air handling units.
