As summer temperatures heat up, so do the plants inside the greenhouse. Unless reduced, excessive heat will likely damage or kill plants. Cool down crops naturally this summer with Gothic Arch Greenhouses Inc. evaporative cooling methods.
Evaporative Cooling, like perspiration, naturally cools down a structure. Just like sweat cools the body, evaporative cooling methods rely on heat and air movement to turn water into vapor, so that when it evaporates, temperature reduces inside the structure. In fact, when applying this idea to greenhouse, the ambient temperature inside can cool as much as 20 degrees, just through evaporation.
Similar to the standard HVAC systems found in residential homes, the heat beating down on a greenhouse over-works the basic ventilation system by trying to maintain a tolerable, cool temperature. This strains the ventilation system, adds to the overall cost of the operation and imposes stress on the plants. To reduce these costs and risks, Gothic Arch Greenhouses encourages growers to consider an additional evaporative cooling system.
Buzz Sierke, president of Gothic Arch Greenhouses, a 70 year old family owned and operated business, is an excessive heat expert. “Centuries ago, when the Egyptians would either hang wet blankets across openings or have servants fan them, evaporative cooling methods were being used. Luckily, there are many mechanical options available to growers today. This is a powerful way of effectively and inexpensively cooling crops. We have a huge selection of greenhouse cooling products, which are the highest quality and lowest priced on the market,” Sierke asserts.
When considering using evaporative cooling methods, Sierke recommends keeping track of two things: the Dry Bulb and the Wet Bulb temperatures. The Dry Bulb is the “regular” air temperature, whereas the Wet Bulb temperature shows the lowest reading reached when using evaporation. Using these two readings, the friendly, knowledgeable staff at Gothic Arch Greenhouses can custom calculate both relative humidity and the level of energy that is needed to change liquid to vapor, and thus efficiently cool the inside of the structure.
The folks at Gothic Arch Greenhouses, a highly respected leader in the industry, help accommodate particular needs. “ We have available complete Evaporative Cooling System, the evaporative cooling pads, the WayCool portable evaporative cooler, the Pro-Kool evaporative cooler for spot cooling, as well as Atomized Fog systems," Sierke asserts.
Plant enthusiasts know that erratic peaks in heat and humidity directly influence growing situations. By installing an Atomized Fog Greenhouse Cooling system from Gothic Arch Greenhouses, gardeners can control temperature conditions year-round. Fogging systems are proven to promote healthy plant growth, reduce the need for irrigation and other water related methods in summer.
Don’t sweat over rising temperatures in the greenhouse. Whether it’s an entire evaporative cooling system, fans, foggers or cooling pads made from a specially formulated cellulose paper, impregnated with insoluble anti-rot salts, stiffening saturates and wetting agents, let the horticulture experts at Gothic Arch Greenhouses custom design a natural based evaporative cooling system for your particular needs.
