Using the space in your greenhouses as efficiently as possible is beneficial for many reasons. Of course, the more plants you grow, the more you can sell, but there are also energy-saving benefits of maximizing your space.

“It’s one really good way to cope with rising energy costs and heating costs,” says Neil Mattson, associate professor and floriculture extension specialist at Cornell University. Building a new, more efficient structure, installing thermal curtains or buying a new boiler might be your first thought when considering ways to save on energy bills, but they can also be expensive. “Those are all capital costs,” says Mattson. “While they might give you a good return on your investment, you could have an even quicker return on your investment just by maximizing how you use your space.”

However, it’s important to remember that much of the heat from forced-air units doesn’t actually reach the plants where they need it most – at the soil level.
