Air quality is vital for a healthy living environment and shouldn’t be overlooked when growing plants. This becomes even more important when living in an urban environment or in an area with low air quality. Air filters help to reduce odors and eliminate dust and other particles. Many ventilation systems move large quantities of air in a short period of time, this means sucking in any air that is present at the time.
Many times dust and dirt are pulled into a growing system that only helps to coat everything in a fine layer. A simple air filter attached to a fan or in line with a ventilation system can keep growing environments clean and healthy. Many filters are made with activated carbon which helps to remove odors and particles. This technology has been present with water filters for years and is now being applied to air purification.
