SinoGreen Horizontal Air Flow Fan is Best Air Circulation for Greenhouse
Enhancing Greenhouse Ventilation: Choosing the Right Fan
Proper ventilation is essential in maintaining an optimal growing environment and improves the overall productive environment of a greenhouse. It is important for both good temperature and humidity management. Whether you’re choosing roof vents or side vents, you’ll need fans to help propel the air through your grow environment and maintain a comfortable setting for your plants. Greenhouse ventilation can be achieved passively or actively. The venting capacity of your greenhouse is usually described as a percentage of floor area. For example, a greenhouse with 30% roof ventilation has 0.3㎡ of open vent area for every 1㎡ of floor area.
HAF fans are vital to monitor the temperature to maintain an ideal environment to avoid condensation and diseases and prevent leaves from entering a dew point.
What kind of circulation fans do you need for a greenhouse?
SinoGreen light traps & light filters are an important feature of any light deprivation greenhouses or poultry houses. Simply place SinoGreen light traps over any ventilation opening in the structure to block light without sacrificing the efficiency of the fans they cover. Reduce the light and create a suitable growth environment for livestock by avoiding direct sunlight and reducing the impact of external light sources.
Where is the best place to locate a horizontal airflow fan in your greenhouse?
The ideal location to place horizontal airflow fans is in the centre of the air mass that is moving through the greenhouse. This positioning maximizes the cooler air at the plants. They have blades which circulate to operate against zero static pressure and are designed to force air through louvres. The movement of air will help remove moisture from the plant canopy, thus ensuring your greenhouse has a drier climate. This placement allows hot air to escape effectively, drawing fresh air in from the opposite side of the greenhouse.
How to choose the right size of air circulation fans for your greenhouse?
The size of the fan depends on the volume of the greenhouse space. For circulation fans, we recommend two rows of fans – four fans total in a 24 x 96 greenhouse (2,300 square feet). You may need more if you have taller, thicker crops like hydroponic tomatoes or cannabis. However, factors such as the specific crop requirements, greenhouse layout, and the presence of additional ventilation systems should also be considered.
