GROWMASTER CLIMATE CONTROL SYSTEM
Bergdorf™ GrowMaster, GrowMaster Optima, and Optima Tent climate controllers – for Closed Environment cultivation systems
Bergdorf™ proud to introduce their latest additions to the Bergdorf air source system family; GrowMaster and Optima. As a brand, the Bergdorf™ equipment has long been a name synonymous with efficiency, style and reliability within homes, offices and commercial environments throughout Europe.
In response to increasing consumer demand, at Bergdorf™ we have drawn on our skill and existing product knowledge to develop a climate controlling system that is ideal for maintaining and facilitating growth in horticultural environments.
With ever-changing and more frequent adverse weather conditions – the traditional method of open-air cultivation is experiencing industry turbulence and there is emerging support for Closed Environment Agriculture (otherwise known as Closed Loop systems). A tried and tested technique in the North American market – our system enables the end user to maintain key growing factors within an isolated room space. These include maintaining optimal temperature*, relative humidity*, in built controlled CO? diffusion, as well as an active filtration system of unwanted airborne particles. The system employs whisper technology ensuring silent operation 24 hours every day.

*denotes factors that are not solely influenced by the equipment; i.e. also by room insulation, glazing quality, lighting, volume of air circulated per hour etc
Many websites offer a variety of calculations to determine KW requirement; this is both confusing and more often conflicting! This can be
simplified for typical smaller cultivators as follows……
Standard 600w light source requires 2.05KW – 2.5KW cooling – traditionally considered for 1x1m up to 3x1m closed environments. Calculations always by lighting effect rather than room dimensions (although use room size as a guide), so assume maximum space efficiency in use i.e. 15m2 room with 15m2 growing space.
Beyond this consider as standard other factors such as; ceiling height, no other heating influences, good insulation, and meets current building regulations (important not to overcomplicate basics with these variables).
Identify growing area size to determine how many bulbs will typically be in use – which in turn will give you a ballpark figure for KW requirement.
Refer this valve against model size availability and ask yourself which chassis size corresponds to needs;
Small chassis models of 12,000 Btu (3.5KW output), 16,000 Btu (4.2KW), 18,000 Btu (5.3KW), 21,000 Btu (6.2KW)
Medium chassis models of 24,000 Btu (7.0KW), 30,000 Btu (8.2KW), 36,000 Btu (9.4KW)
Large chassis models of 48,000 Btu (14.0KW), 60,000 Btu (16.4KW)
Build in a failsafe which would see you promote the highest end BTU model in its appropriate chassis size (i.e. 21K model in place of a 12K model, 36K model in place of a 24K model).
This should offer for room for future expansion of growing area, account for seasonal temperature variations, improve equipment lifespan (less strain on a bigger compressor), all within the same physical dimensions as the smallest size unit in that chassis range.
GrowMaster / Standard Inverter equipment are a key component to achieve a closed loop horticultural system.
21K and 36K models through experience are best sellers – customer preference!
No 2 growing environments will ever be exactly the same, but rule of thumb will provide good support
