Prepping greenhouses with efficient heating solutions
Added on 02 December 2022
With consumers demanding a variety of produce year-round, commercial greenhouses are extremely important to the economy. Greenhouses enable farmers to grow and produce fruits and vegetables throughout the year without the need to worry about the climate. During the winter, it is necessary for these individuals to grow their crops indoors to protect them from cold temperatures.
With winter on the horizon, it is important for commercial greenhouse owners to begin prepping for the seasonal shift. There are various tips that help ensure your winter growing season is efficient and successful.
Install An Efficient Unit Heater
One necessity for commercial greenhouses is a heating source. While there are various options for providing heat to the space, unit heaters will provide a permanent, efficient heating solution to your greenhouse. Efficient unit heaters not only help keep a few extra dollars in the budget, but it also dramatically lowers CO2 emissions. Products like the Effinity™ High-Efficiency Commercial Gas-Fired Unit Heater operate at up to 97% thermal efficiency thanks to the coupling of the secondary heat exchanger technology with a tubular primary heat exchanger design. By venting combustion fumes outside and away from the plants, high-efficiency units like the Effinity™ promote a clean air growing environment.
