Ventilation

Proper ventilation is key to the success of a greenhouse. Fresh air helps control the temperature and humidity, reduces the incidence of diseases and provides an ideal environment for optimal growth.

There are two options for ventilating a greenhouse, passive or powered.

Passive ventilation utilizes ridge vents and roll up sides to allow hot air to escape the greenhouse and fresh air to enter.

Powered ventilation uses intake and exhaust fans, powered by 110, DC or solar. The cubic feet of your greenhouse will be the determining factor as to how many fans are needed to get the necessary volume of air moving. The quicker the movement of air, the easier it is to control the temperature and humidity.
