Heating/Heat Retention/Shade Systems
Heating Systems are specifically designed for your location and requirements.
We carry a full line of Modine Unit gas fired heaters. Standard models are the PTP 150 – 400,000 BTU heaters. Available in LP or Natural gas. Equipped with Spark ignition and power vented exhaust and comes standard with a Stainless Steel heat exchanger and a 10-year warranty. Also available are the Effinity High Efficiency (93%) unit heaters. Models include the PTC 55 – 310,000 BTU units. Effinity models dramatically reduce energy cost and CO2 emissions. These models come standard with spark ignition, power vented exhaust and require a vented air intake.
Light management and temperature control are of utmost importance when trying to maximize yield and quality and lower energy costs. Intense sunlight and solar heat gain in the greenhouse can quickly create an environment that is detrimental to healthy plant (and worker) production. Automated retractable shade systems offer the solution. Additionally, during the greenhouse heating cycle these systems are designed to keep the heat from rising into the top of the greenhouse and away from designed to keep the heat from rising into the top of the greenhouse and away from the plants, thus reducing heating costs. Your specific climate control needs will vary depending on your geographic location, but with so many different climate screens available, there is a screen or combination of screens that will allow you to zero in on the ideal climate for your crop. These automated systems work off a rack and pinion drive system that moves from truss to truss. Open and closed settings can be based on temperature, light intensity, or time of day. Multiple bay greenhouses can be operated as a single growing zone or broken into smaller zones to allow for more operated as a single growing zone or broken into smaller zones to allow for more intensive management of different crop growth stages.
