Control over the climate and protecting against light emission is a challenge for the horticultural entrepreneur in greenhouse horticulture. You understand the concerns of the environment when you drive through the greenhouse area in the evening on a cloudy day. The assimilation lighting colors the cloudy sky bright orange or purple. But as an entrepreneur you also understand that cracking is needed to get rid of the humidity and heat.
In addition to the cracks that cause a nuisance for local residents, it also brings temperature differences due to cold in the greenhouse. The nuisance has led to regulations that state that the screens and side walls must screen off enough to prevent extreme light pollution. The question is not whether, but when the screens must be completely closed when using assimilation lighting. Then pulling a crack is really a thing of the past.
With closed screens, the greenhouse has an insulating effect, which also has an energy-saving effect. But where do you leave the damp air and lamp heat without a crack? By bringing colder, drier air into the greenhouse, you can displace the warm, moist air through the cloth. The cold air will drop and the warm air will rise (Source).
We receive a lot of demand to bring the air above the screen into the greenhouse. Solutions that the VentilationJet offer. With this system you can dose the colder and drier air. This way you can control your climate without extra heating costs on the minimum tube. You can also distribute the introduced air evenly with greenhouse fans such as the Hinovatoren, so that large climate differences are not achieved.
For the (re) construction of a greenhouse you can read what the latest developments are in the field of climate. New screens, drying cabinets or VentilationJets. You weigh up all investments and take into account the service and energy costs in the medium term.
With new construction and renovation, it is the ideal opportunity to install VentilationJets.
Are you going to (re) build soon? Decide for yourself what the future holds with the resources available today.
