Choosing a Greenhouse Design


Visitors: 132

When you are choosing a greenhouse design, you need to look for one that is the most energy efficient. This will enable you to grow plants and flowers all throughout the year. You need to choose a design that will allow for growing both tropical and hardy flowers. A typical design would be a dome structure that features a unique combination of seven different features. These features are:

* Vents that automatically open and close depending on the temperature inside
* A polyvoltaic solar panel
* A water tank to provide heat during the night
* A solar ventilation fan
* An insulated door
* An insulated stud wall
* A horizontal undersoil insulation
* Heat pipes running underground

In this greenhouse the polycarbonate wall panels can be double or triple glazed. These panels are strong and will last a long time. 99% of the light will shine through for optimal growing conditions. The insulation in the wall will help to provide shade as well as keep the heat in for night time use. In combination with the water tank, it will keep the humidity at the right level and keep the greenhouse from overheating.

With the heating system running under the soil, a solar panel produces the electricity needed to power a fan. The fan blows hot air through the pipes that are buried in the soil beds. Thus the plants get the heat they need to grow. The insulation around the perimeter of the greenhouse prevents the frost from getting through the wall. This enables the soil to maintain an even temperature.
