Solar Innovations, a bespoke manufacturer of residential and commercial greenhouses, conservatories, verandas, folding glass walls and more, announces environmental control system upgrades available to the home gardener or professional horticulturist thanks to advancements continuous technology.
Advances in computer technology have made owning and operating greenhouses easier than ever. âSolar Innovations’ environmental control options can help the home gardener or professional horticulturist by automatically adjusting temperature, humidity and light intensity from the greenhouse or a remote location. An environmental control system will improve plant life in greenhouses by providing a constantly monitored atmosphere, producing a more uniform product.
Solar Innovations greenhouse control systems can be automated to the gardener’s specifications. Greenhouse accessories, including fans, vents, misting and misting systems, and heating or cooling systems, are automated in stages to match gardener’s selection and plant needs.
The first stage of implementation can be as simple as an on / off switch to control the circulation fans which delaminate the air and the ridge vents to allow the escape of hot air. An evaporative cooler can also be incorporated to draw cool, moist air into the structure. By semi-automating a control system with a hygrostat, thermostat or time delay device, accessories will only work when needed, reducing operating costs and saving energy. Fully automated systems have the option of being controlled by a sensaphone or remote programming system on a PLC or even via a mobile phone, saving considerable time. These fully automated systems can be designed to maintain a specific set of criteria for constant plant comfort, taking into account conditions external to the structure that can affect the growing atmosphere of plants.
In addition to common greenhouse accessories, Solar Innovations environmental control systems can be designed to accommodate advanced features such as evaporative coolers and foggers, drip systems, sensaphones, remote programming , photo and light sensors and ground sensors. The grower’s time can now be spent tending to the plants rather than tinkering with their growing environment. Beyond the cost and time efficiency of the greenhouse control system, Mother Nature will benefit. Control systems can also reduce the need for chemicals to promote plant growth, as the environment is more tightly adjusted to create the ideal conditions and reduce energy costs and waste.
Solar Innovations custom greenhouse accessories can be computer controlled to improve the quality of plant life while providing benefits to the gardener. For more information on the control systems available from Solar Innovations, please contact Solar at 717-933-4843 or 800-618-0669.
