 Greenhouse Ventilation

Overview
Greenhouses give us the opportunity to grow year round by harnessing the power of the sun and eliminating the negative effects of inclement weather, pests and disease and allows controlled pollination. There are basically two kinds of ventilation. Natural or passive ventilation can be achieved through strategically placed vents and inlets and rely on wind or natural occurrences to work. And, there is an active ventilation system which is the most reliable but require a power supply. Active or powered greenhouse ventilation and related products are what you will find available on this web page.

Greenhouse Exhaust Fans
Proper greenhouse ventilation is essential in creating the ideal environment for your growth cycle and creating more profitable blooms. Since plants can breath out or transpire up to 80% of the moisture they take in through their roots, its critical to remove excessive heat and humidity from your greenhouse. Greenhouse exhaust fans are an excellent way to keep your growth environment maximized by maintaining a negative pressure to remove unwanted humidity and excessive heat while pulling in fresh air and much needed carbon dioxide through a motorized shutter or louver system. Typically you want the greenhouse exhaust fans to be as far away from your fresh air supply inlets as possible. You can mange the climate and automate the system through thermostats, humidistats or timers depending on your geographical location and the type of plants or produce your growing. Before designing your greenhouse ventilation system, know your climate and the climate required to maximize your plants growth potential.

Horizontal Air Flow (HAF) Fans can be used to create a circular air flow pattern in your greenhouse removing any unwanted air pockets and ensuring your greenhouse is properly breathing.
