Types of the greenhouse heating. The features and differences
In order to grow such kind of vegetables as tomatoes or cucumbers and other different types of vegetables in the greenhouse during winter period it is necessary to use greenhouse heating inside.

- The second type of the ventilation is forced ventilation which is the artificial movement of the air masses by means of various devices which is the fan in our case.
January in the greenhouse
Most people consider January a dormant time in the greenhouse. If you have already minimized your heat loss, you have already insulated the heck out of them, the weather stripping, all the bubble wrap in the paneling and the foam insulation, the two inch foam insulation where they have reflective coating on them. If you have already done all that, what else can we do? Well, we can add some heat sinks. Those are ideal because they work the best with barrels, black steel drums filled with water all along the north side, and maybe holding benches throughout the rest of your greenhouse or anything to kind of accumulate some of that heat in the greenhouse during the day and release that at night, but you have already done all that. read more →
