FAQs: Unlocking Peak Performance in Your Indoor Garden

Welcome to the RAM Frequently Asked Questions!

Here, we answer the most common enquiries professional growers have about creating an optimal environment for their indoor gardens. Let’s dive into some frequently asked questions!

Choosing the Right Ventilation System:

  • Q: How do I choose the right ventilation system for my grow room size?

    • A: The ideal ventilation system size depends on the cubic footage of your grow space. We recommend contacting our ventilation experts for personalized guidance
  • Q: How should I choose a filter to match the fan that I shall use?
    • A: Choosing the right filter for your fan is crucial for optimal performance. Here are some key considerations:
        • Diameter: Ideally, select a filter with the same diameter as your fan for a simpler setup. Slight variations are okay, but it’s better to have a slightly larger filter than fan.
        • Airflow Rate: Adding a filter increases system pressure, reducing the fan’s actual airflow rate. To compensate, choose a filter with a flow rate 20% higher than your fan’s free flow rate.
        • Actual vs. Rated Airflow: Filters perform better with airflow below their rated capacity. A filter with a higher rated airflow than your system’s actual airflow will function more effectively for a longer lifespan.
  • Q: Can I directly connect a RAM AirTECH Filter to a fan without ducting?
    • A: While technically possible in some situations, using ducting with your RAM AirTECH Filter and fan is highly recommended for optimal performance. Here’s why:

        • Improved Airflow: Ducting creates a smooth pathway for air to travel, minimizing resistance and maximizing airflow efficiency.
        • Versatility in Placement: Ducting allows you greater flexibility in positioning your fan and filter within your grow room for optimal air circulation.
        • Reduced Noise: Ducting can help dampen fan noise, creating a quieter grow environment.


Optimizing Your Ventilation System:

  • Q: How often should I change my RAM Filter?

    • A: RAM AirTECH Filters typically last 12-18 months, depending on usage and grow room conditions. Monitor your filter for any decrease in odour control effectiveness and replace it when necessary.
  • Q: How do I clean the pre-filter on my RAM Filter?

    • A: The pre-filter is conveniently washable. Simply remove it from the filter, rinse with clean water, and allow it to dry completely before reattaching.
  • Q: How can I adjust the airflow in my ventilation system?

    • A: For ultimate control, consider using a RAM AirPRO Fan Speed Controller. This allows you to fine-tune your fan speed for optimal efficiency based on your grow room’s specific needs.

Additional Tips for Indoor Garden Success:

  • Q: What are some additional tips for maintaining proper temperature and humidity in my grow room?
    • A: In addition to ventilation, factors like lighting and the amount of water your plants receive can impact temperature and humidity. Research the specific needs of your plants and invest in tools like hygrometers and thermometers for monitoring.
