How to manage the heating system in your greenhouse
A greenhouse main purpose is to maximize the production output even where environmental conditions are not favorable. Each factor within a greenhouse must re-create the optimal conditions for the growth and cultivation of the crop in a delicate microclimate balance.
Heating operates when the temperatures appear to be below the required limit. Normally, the best and most adopted solution is the indirect air heater which runs on natural gas, LPG or diesel.
The amount of heat required depends not only on the type of crop but also upon the amount of heat loss from the structure. It usually occurs by all three modes of heat transfer: conduction, convection, and radiation. Furthermore, other factors may affect or influence the heat loss such as the age condition of the greenhouse and the ventilation system adopted.
