Making the right choice for your HVAC system is critical to maintaining the proper grow environment and has long term implications on production energy costs. The seminar will present case studies of multiple HVAC system choices with concrete results explaining the energy implications of each scenario. We will discuss first cost, energy cost, and maintenance cost implications of each case study. We will also briefly touch on potential Energy Code hangups. You will walk away with takeaways which will leave you empowered to make informed decisions about mechanical systems that can have a dramatic effect on crop productivity and production costs.
