Understanding Greenhouses

Greenhouses are structures with walls and roofs made up of transparent material such as glass or plastic. They work by converting the light energy from the sun’s rays that enter through the transparent walls to heat energy through plants and objects inside the greenhouse that absorb the light. Greenhouses are a great way for people to grow plants all year long including during the colder months as they make use of the sun’s natural rays and the soil to trap the radiant heat. Heat is needed for plants to thrive and grow. However, sometimes when you live in a climate with limited sun or consistent cold temperatures, the natural mechanism of a greenhouse may not be enough to keep your plants happy. This is when you may need to get an additional heating system to help your greenhouse provide the perfect environment for your plants to thrive in. The additional heat helps your plants photosynthesize and grow well in your greenhouse.

If you are wondering whether your greenhouse needs a heater, here are some signs:

  • Your seedlings are not growing
  • You live in a place with a colder climate
  • Your plants are not growing as well during some seasons

There are many options when it comes to heating your greenhouse. You can use natural heating such as insulation or heat sinks. Alternatively, you can also use boilers, especially if you own a commercial greenhouse and your heating needs are more substantial. Otherwise, coal boilers are a great option for optimal energy efficiency and effectiveness.
