♦ Why should I use an oscillating fan in my grow space?
An oscillating fan will cause air movement helping to keep the area cool and controlling humidity on the plant and dew point within your grow space. Air movement across the plant will ultimately reduce the leaf surface temperature. When leaf surface temperatures exceed 75°F, the plant enters a protection mode and begins to compensate for perceived drought. When a plant is in this protection mode it does not take in required nutrients and water because it is preserving energy. Circulating air will help eliminate higher leaf surface temperatures and will keep your plant in optimum nutrient uptake mode.
Oscillating fans will also help the dew point in your grow area
fluctuate. A stagnant dew point is the main catalyst for the growth
of powdery mildew. Controlling your dew point with an oscillating
fan will reduce the risk of powdery mildew growth.
♦ What is an inline fan used for?
An inline fan is designed for use in ventilation systems to
boost airflow. They mount directly inline with your ducting system
to create efficient and quiet air movement for either supplying air
to an area or exhausting air from an area. Hurricane Inline Fans
are also designed to work in conjunction with Phresh
Filters and can be used to air-cool reflectors used in
♦ How do I control Hurricane Fans?
Each Hurricane fan is unique in its indivdual controls. The
controls for Hurricane Classic and Supreme wall mount fans, floor
fans, stand fans and clip fans are located on the units and are
simple to use. The Hurricane Super 8 Fan can
be programmed and operated with the buttons on the control panel,
or with the included remote control. For Hurricane Centrifugal Inline Fans and the
After Burner Mixed Flow
Fans, we recommend using Titan Controls Fan Speed & Ventilation
♦ What does CFM mean?
CFM is the acronym for Cubic
Feet per Minute - the measure of
air volume moved by the fan blower. Choose a fan with a CFM rating
appropriate for your room size and application to ensure adequate
♦ How to I know what CFM rating to choose?
It is important to use a fan with the proper CFM rating for
your application. There are several factors to consider when
determining which fan will be best for you. Some of these factors
include ambient outdoor temperature, use of a CO2 generator,
dehumidifier and/or air conditioner, whether or not your reflectors
are air-cooled and more. You will also want to evaluate your
individual application for using an inline fan.
Because there are so many variables to consider when choosing the right fan for you, we recommend contacting your local retail store for help in choosing a fan with the proper CFM rating for your application. Click here to find an authorized retailer in your area.
♦ Can I exhaust my fan into my attic or garage?
No. Never exhaust your fan into an enclosed space.
♦ Is there specific ducting I should use with Hurricane Fans?
Hurricane Fans will work with most standard ducting sizes but
we do recommend use with Ideal-Air ducting and clamps. Click here for more information.
♦ Is it better to use rigid or flex ducting with Hurricane fans?
Hurricane fans can be used with either rigid or flex ducting.
We recommend use with Ideal-Air Ducting and Clamps.
♦ Can I use a smaller diameter duct than what the fan is designed for?
This is not recommended. Using ducting with a lesser diameter than the design of the fan will cause the fan to run harder, greatly reducing CFM performance and overall effciency. It will also create excess noise.
