Upgrades Can Pay You Back
Part Two in our series on greenhouse upgrades focuses on projects that improve energy efficiency to provide a quick return on investment.

greenhouse upgradesUpgrading your greenhouses can be expensive, but there's a good chance it's worth the money when you consider your return on investment. Thanks to their energy efficiency, new heating systems are one of the wisest investments you can make. And while heating upgrades can be costly, the older, inefficient heating units often cost growers a fortune in the form of wasted energy.

Efficient Heating Options
One heating option to consider is an energy-efficient hydronic radiant system. Unlike forced-air heating systems, which lose a large amount of heat in the air that never reaches the plants, hydronic radiant floor or bench heat warms plants at the soil level. These systems (see Delta T's high-efficiency boiler options here (Jamie, please add the link)) work with the greenhouse boiler, which heats water that is pumped through tubes running throughout the greenhouse. Hydronic radiant heating systems operate with a closed-loop system, which means very little heat is wasted as the water circulates through the tubes. Because radiant heat creates a moist environment, water usage also is reduced.

Is Your Unit Heater
Causing Ethylene Injury?

Learn to recognize the symptoms of plant injury caused by exposure to ethylene, a colorless, odorless gas.

Some parts of the country have experienced brutally cold temperatures in 2013, and there's no doubt growers will be putting their greenhouse heating units to good use between now and spring. Unfortunately, older unit heaters can sometimes cause injury to plants, especially if those heaters are not properly maintained. Before you crank up the temperature in your greenhouse, learn to recognize the symptoms of ethylene injury caused by malfunctioning greenhouse unit heaters.
