Greenhouse heaters are essential for protecting your plants during the winter months. While a greenhouse provides more shelter than leaving your plants outside, the one thing it can’t protect them against is drops in temperature which can be damaging to sensitive plants.
To provide protection against colder climates, install a greenhouse heater that will regulate the temperature inside your greenhouse. Greenhouse heaters are just one of many essential greenhouse accessories we offer in our range of greenhouses here at Primrose.
While a greenhouse provides essential shelter for your plants, it’s not entirely resistant to changes in temperature. As the temperature drops in the winter months, heating your greenhouse can prevent sensitive plants from suffering the effects of frost.
What temperature range should my greenhouse be?
The ideal temperature for a greenhouse is in the range of 80 to 85 degrees Fahrenheit. It can be tricky to keep this temperature steady throughout the changing seasons, which is why a greenhouse heater is essential for the winter months.
Which heater is best for my greenhouse?
There are so many different kinds of greenhouse heaters you can choose from, and the best one for your greenhouse entirely depends on the setup of your plants. For some, floor-standing greenhouse heaters will work best – if you have enough space. If space is an issue for you, hanging greenhouse heaters can be installed.
The two key choices of greenhouse heater are paraffin or electric. Paraffin heaters will gently heat the plants they’re situated near, while electric heaters will help to raise the overall temperature of the greenhouse. Choose your heat source depending on your budget and the arrangement of your plants.
