How Many Grow Room Air Cleaners Do I Need?

Maintaining the air quality in your grow room is key to achieving excellent growing conditions. Cultivators who are serious about the quality of their end-product want the strongest defense against airborne threats and bacteria - which is why they implement grow room air cleaners.

Grow room air filtration systems work in tandem to create a pattern of air exchanges that generate optimal circular airflow. By strategically placing air filtration systems in your grow room, you can avoid stale pockets of air, control VOCs and odors, prevent insects and pests, restrict bacteria, and ward off fungus and mold.

It's important to install the right amount of grow room air cleaners to ensure that the CFM (cubic feet per minute) requirements are met. The CFM required will vary based on your application and the size of your grow space.

To determine how many air cleaners needed to handle your grow room's CFM, use the following steps:

Matching a Grow Room Air Cleaner to the Volume of Your Space

Calculate the size of your grow room(s)

A. You can determine the size of your grow room by multiplying the length by the width by the height of the ceiling.
Use this calculation: L x W x H = Area of Grow Room

This example is based on CleanLeaf grow room air cleaners. Our units exchange the air in a grow room 8x per hour!
CFM= Area of Grow Room (L x W x H) x Air Changes per Hour / 60 mins

Example: 30 X 20 X 20 = 12,000 Area of Grow Room
12,000 Area of Grow Room x 8 CleanLeaf air changes per hour = 96,000
96,000 / 60 mins. = 1,600 CFM

The grow room air cleaners in each CleanLeaf Series range between 400 and 2,100 CFM. There are multiple solutions available for a grow space of this size and smaller or larger.
