Hit Tempurature Setpoints, Lower Energy Costs
Greenhouses and indoor growing facilities need consistent temperatures to provide the optimum growing environment year-round especially under extreme winter weather. Maintaining these environmental conditions is one of the most difficult factors a grower must manage.
Hydronic boilers, which use water as the heat transfer fluid, are an effective way to provide heat for sub and above ground heating systems. While water contains some good heat transfer qualities, its high surface tension limits the heat transfer contact area within coils and pipes. At times, heat dissipates quickly, requiring more fuel and increased output from boilers to consistently meet the temperature requirements.
Hydronic boiler systems use several energy sources to operate such as natural gas or propane. The energy cost to run a boiler is the second highest overhead cost in a growing operation second to labor costs, therefore maximizing the efficiency of hydronic heating system is key to controlling operational costs.
