The cannabis industry is quickly going mainstream. As more and more states legalize cannabis, the stigma attached to this horticulture specialty is drifting away, and a varied mix of people are finding enormous business potential and growth in the product. Adrian Giovenco, Founder & CEO of InSpire Transpiration Solutions, sat down with the Straight Outta Crumpton duo, Tyler Kern and Greg Crumpton, to share how the industry’s shaping up and the innovations his company brings to cannabis through integrated HVACD solutions.

Giovenco said it’s a joy to serve the cannabis industry, and many innovations are coming into the space. “What we do on a day-to-day basis at InSpire is try to help push the boundaries of commercial, industrial cultivation, and drying and curing in particular. The environmental control is so paramount to their overall success.”

Climate control of the cultivation space is the name of the game in today’s cannabis market. The VPD, vapor pressure deficit, or differential between the inside and outside of the leaf will help drive healthy plant growth. Integrated HVACD systems help achieve the goals of growers, making commercialization possible.

Commercial HVAC applications maintain and protect mission-critical environments, so it doesn’t come as a surprise that the integration of these types of solutions is well-suited for a product that relies on perfect conditions for growth. And while utilizing HVAC methods in the commercial cultivation of cannabis is a relatively new endeavor, Giovenco loves that his company gets to be involved in leading a revolutionary change for the industry.

“There are so many different ways to come up with the best solution, and it’s hard to say that one way’s better than another,” Giovenco said. “It’s going to take some time to figure out the best ways to do this challenge. One of our guys, Jessie, coined the phrase, HVACD, which is a little bit of an oxymoron in the air conditioning world because one of the main methods of air conditioning is by dehumidifying.” In the cannabis industry, having a system that both cools and dehumidifies means growing control.
