Understanding how different technologies are best applied in various circumstances is what led us to pursue all different types of technologies that we can offer to our clients. Our line of custom air handlers, which can be applied in either chilled water or DX (refrigerant based) applications, resulted from those efforts.

In the endless quest to improve efficiencies and boost yields, multi-level cultivation environments have the obvious benefit of allowing for more production and higher yields within the same square footage. However, there are also some drawbacks. Let’s carefully consider the benefits and risks of cultivating in multiple levels prior to facility construction.
Cultivating indoors helps many growers continue to harvest year-round, even in cold-weather climates. However, it makes little sense to have to run air conditioners at full capacity to cool indoor environments when ambient temperatures are below freezing. Find out how utilizing dry cooling could lower your monthly operational costs.
The legal cannabis market is growing from nothing to a potential $25 billion industry by 2021. There are now 21 states that have legalized cannabis for medical use and another 8 that have legalized for adult-use, creating one of the fastest growing industries in the country.
Every day, the cannabis industry changes as innovators introduce amazing new ideas and products. We see this first hand both at our own company and through our customers that work every day to bring quality products to the market. These innovations take dedication which is why we are especially excited about one of our own innovators today.
Last week, the Surna team traveled to Los Angeles to attend the Cannabis World Congress & Business Exposition. This was our first year exhibiting at this show and we met a lot of great people and attended some interesting talks regarding hot topics in the industry.
As cultivators and owners know, building out a commercial sized facility takes a lot of time, patience and money but can be extremely lucrative in the long run. Large-scale commercial facilities that are up and running are generating huge profits, mostly in cash. But this type of revenue takes time. To get to a place where a facility can sustain itself financially, owners first must go through the long and expensive process of licensing, permitting, obtaining land and/or buildings and, of course, choosing lighting and environmental control.
You’ve finally gotten your license and funding, picked out a facility, picked out equipment and pulled the trigger. Now what? Sometimes, the hardest part of setting up a facility comes when you’re ready to begin construction and have to get everything in order. You want to be sure that your new equipment is going to be installed and maintained correctly and efficiently, offering you savings on operating costs and the peace of mind that your plants are healthy and safe all hours of the day.
At Surna, we talk a lot about creating efficient cannabis cultivation facilities. Efficiency is key on many levels within a grow, consuming less energy, achieving the highest yield possible, but the most significant reason to strive for an efficient cultivation facility is to maximize profits. As the industry grows and matures, competition will increase and the best way to combat rising competition is to tighten up your procedures and create the most efficient grow possible, allowing you to produce higher yields for less money.
