Keith Coursin, President, Desert Aire – “Bridging The HVAC Gap for Better Grow Rooms” – Communication gaps between cultivators, horticulture consultants and HVAC engineers complicate the abilities of the parties to get on the same page. Each group has a different glossary of terms and frame of reference that impacts the effective development of design elements for grow rooms. Keith Coursin will draw from his national experience as an HVAC manufacturer, project planner and professional association leader to help attendees bridge the communication gap and move toward better HVAC designs – and harvests.
