Infrared heating of greenhouses and farms - convenient and profitable
In order for a greenhouse or farm to generate income in the winter, its heating must be economical and efficient. No other is given. The best alternative to obsolete methods is the infrared heating system of greenhouses, farms and hotbeds, which perfectly copes with the protection of plants and soil from the cold.
Traditional methods of heating greenhouses and farms (gas stoves, water, coal and wood heating, convectors) are no longer convenient and cost-effective. They require significant physical and financial costs, which greatly complicates the conduct of business and automatically increases the cost of production (which is not good). Innovation replaces old practice - infrared heating of a greenhouse.
Infrared heating of greenhouses and farms has a lot of advantages, due to which seed germination and animal growth is increased by 30-40% while reducing energy consumption by 40-70%:
high efficiency - 95%. Infrared heaters for heating greenhouses are an excellent purchase: they do not heat the air, but the earth, plants and animals. Airspace receives heat only through reflected energy. All the power of the emitters is directed directly to the heating object.
IR heating does not affect air humidity. No need for additional hydration. You will save a significant amount of money on the purchase of an air humidifier and ionizer, which normalize the moisture level in the room and provide ideal conditions for the development of flowers, vegetables and fruit crops that you grow indoors in the autumn and winter.
Quick system installation. To install a heater for the greenhouse, only 2-3 hours are enough. During this time, you will conduct not only installation, but also a comprehensive check of the device.
Safety. The heating system of the greenhouse based on infrared rays is absolutely safe for the health of people, animals and plants. She does not dry the air. Also, this system does not irritate the skin, mucous membrane of the eyes and nose (in humans), does not deform the structure of stems and leaves (in plants).
Fire safety. If you install this device for heating a greenhouse in winter, you make the right choice: with this system, the risks are minimal. There is no open flame and heating elements.
The presence of temperature controllers. These details allow you to precisely adjust the temperature of the infrared heater in the greenhouse to the needs of a particular plant and animals. You can also create several climatic zones in one greenhouse or farm, setting the temperature regime individually for each site.
No noise. If you are racking your brains over the question: “How to make heating in greenhouses as acceptable as possible?”, Choose infrared heaters to heat the body. Firstly, they work without noise. Secondly, they provide constant illumination of the room even when the current drops in the mains.
Another important feature that summer residents will appreciate is simplicity and ease of maintenance. Everything you need to create comfortable conditions for growing vegetables, fruits, flowers, or to provide a comfortable microclimate for pets in the autumn-winter period, install the device correctly and make sure that it works properly. If you notice the slightest malfunction in his work, contact the professionals for help. They will quickly eliminate all possible defects.
Create natural and comfortable conditions for heating the greenhouse and the farm by choosing the appropriate method for installing emitters!
How to install IR heaters?
Depending on the technological conditions, infrared heaters can be placed on the ceiling, walls or used to heat the soil and animals, laying under beds.
The easiest and most affordable way is overhead heating (a heat source is placed on the walls or ceiling) using:
infrared heaters. The weight of one heat plate does not exceed 3-5 kg, which makes the installation process quick and not difficult. As a rule, heaters are located at a distance of one and a half to three meters from each other. The distance is determined based on the power of the device, the temperature in the greenhouse, the height of the plate above the ground.
infrared lamps. Less powerful compared to emitters. They are installed at a distance of up to 1.5 m from each other. Most effective in heating greenhouses and small greenhouses.
For greater efficiency, it is recommended to mount lamps and emitters on height-adjustable suspensions. To accurately meter the amount of heat received by soil and plants.
The lower winter heating of the greenhouse is carried out by means of special tapes laid in the ground. This type of installation has two significant features.:
the depth of their laying should be more than half a meter from the surface of the beds;
the tape is laid in the ground horizontally under the beds or vertically between the beds and along the perimeter.
The bottom heating system is more difficult to install, but at the same time it allows to achieve maximum reduction in energy consumption.
Important! When changing the ground every year, workers must be extremely careful not to damage the heating film.
