greenhouse ventilation with wind-driven exhaust turbines
The ventilation system within a greenhouse plays an extremely important part in plant health. Ventilation systems serve four functions: temperature and humidity control, carbon dioxide and oxygen replacement, and air circulation. Without an adequate ventilation system, the greenhouse will not be able to perform these tasks and plant health will decline. Energy-free roof exhaust turbines for greenhouse ventilation and cooling is an efficient and energy-saving solution for keeping your plants healthy.
how the roof exhaust turbines keep plants healthy
Temperature control: Excess heat can be detrimental to plants and the gardeners who tend to them. The turbines remove excess heat trapped in the ceiling and replace it with cool air overnight.
Humidity control: With excess heat comes high concentrations of humidity, and with humidity comes mold, fungus, and mildew that can harm plants. Plants also produce moisture that can build up and raise humidity levels if proper ventilation is not in place.
Carbon dioxide & oxygen replacement: A human wouldn't be able to survive in a poorly ventilated area, and plants can't either. The turbines are able to exhaust hot, stale air and replenish it with fresh air and carbon dioxide so plants are able to perform photosynthesis.
Air circulation: Proper air circulation leads to a uniform temperature, humidity, carbon dioxide, and oxygen throughout the greenhouse. Plants depend on environmental consistency in order to survive. When combined with fans to stimulate air currents, the turbines can help create an even, ambient environment for all plants within a greenhouse.
Additional Benefits Of Energy-Free Roof Exhaust Turbines
In addition to extracting air pollutants, reducing heat, and reducing energy costs, additional benefits of the rooftop air ventilators include:
- Natural operation: no electrical operating costs or wiring costs
- Very low maintenance
- Minimal structural impact
- Virtually silent operation
- Only requires a breeze of 10mph to exhaust
- Includes manufacturer's 15 year warranty
- Manufactured from 5005 grade aluminum specifically designed to stand up to adverse weather
- Available in a variety of sizes from 24" to 36" in diameter
