When it comes to cannabis grow farms, weather conditions in the Pacific Northwest can be brutal for your crops, and limiting to your grow options. That’s why more and more cannabis grows & farms are opting for indoor grow environments. But how, exactly, does Polyurethane Closed-Cell Spray Foam Insulation help with your cannabis grow?
Like any indoor agricultural farm, insulation is the key to an optimized, temperature controlled environment, to ensure a healthy yield and crop, as well as low energy consumption and costs. And with cannabis, there’s no exception. Indoor cannabis farms essentially depend on a strict, temperature controlled environment. This means that, more often than not, your HVAC heating & cooling system is running nonstop, and that can cost a fortune in your energy bill. Plus, with cannabis, you have the added concern of eliminating pests & rodents.
Unlike cheaper insulation products, like fiberglass or cellulose, (which have a very low thermal barrier), with an R-Value of R-3.2 – R-3.8, Polyurethane Closed-Cell Spray Foam Insulation provides an unmatched thermal barrier of R-6.9 for 1 inch, R-13 for 2 inches, and R-19 for 3 inches. That means you’re going to be utilizing your HVAC heating & cooling system less and less, which means significant savings on your energy bill. And those savings compound every month & year. You also have the added benefit of an unsurpassed moisture barrier, so absolutely no mold or mildew. Due to the fact that indoor grows have such high humidity, 3 inches of Closed-Cell Spray Foam Insulation in the roof deck helps to eliminate the dew point, which then helps mitigate the risk of mold & mildew buildup. And, due to the material composition of Polyurethane Closed-Cell Spray Foam Insulation, it seals all cracks & crevices, so no pests or rodents can gain entry. Plus Polyurethane Closed-Cell Spray Foam Insulation is not a food soluble for pests or rodents, so they’ll steer clear of it.
Cannabis grows & farms already have enough obstacles to overcome (what with mitigating the misinformation of cannabis, and working to end the prohibition against cannabis on a national level). Your insulation should not be another obstacle you have to deal with. We’re proud to service the cannabis industry, and to help educate, and eliminate the negative stigma & misinformation pertaining to cannabis. Luckily, the states of Oregon, Washington, and California have all opted to legalize both medical & recreational sales of cannabis, which has led to an overwhelming pursuit of medical advancements & applications pertaining to eating disorders, cancer patient recovery, pain mitigation, dieting, and so much more.
