Im growing out of my walk in 5x5 closet. I have a vent in the ceiling. So in my case, should just an simple oscillation fan be suffice along with maybe a carbon filter under the vent so smell doesnt travel through out the house?
Yes thats fine. That vent will be the supply and return for air flow. you may even have a carbon filter built into your hvac system. i recommend adding 2 fans. one fan blowing over the soil and the other blowing over the top of the plant. you want to avoid stagnant air.
Thanks and Good idea. Im thinking it may be easier to just put the filter maybe hanging below the vent.
Keep an eye on you temps if you’re not pulling much volume of air out it could get hot in there…
i also suggest getting a dehumidifier just incase the humidity gets too high. you dont want mold or bacteria. a humid, warm, protein rich environment is the perfect condition for bacteria to thrive in.
Good idea. With a dehumidifier i probably wont need a filter for the vent.
A dehumidifier doesn’t have much to do with filtering air for smell.
Well i agree haha. But the smell would be much stronger in a humid environment so in that way it would help. Any HVAC knowledgeable people know that if a filter used in my hvac system is enough to prevent smell from going throughout the house through other vents? Or if i should get a carbon filter to place under the vent?

HVAC is fine as long it’s blowing cold air. Doesn’t your central AC turn into a heater during the winter like mine does? Do not want hot air blowing into your grow closet.
If i have it on automatic yes… but for where i live winter is only 3 weeks… so for now this may be fine
