The legalization of cannabis in many US states and Canada is providing a unique growth opportunity for the HVAC industry. Grow facilities that focus on cannabis require exacting and specific air conditions that differ from conventional HVAC systems. The first presentation discusses how HVAC cooling and heating load calcs and equipment selection differ for grow facilities versus conventional HVAC applications. The seminar discusses all of the additional parameters required to properly calculate cooling, heating, and humidification loads and the resulting equipment selection. The second presentation in the seminar discusses real world applications.
