Step 2: Fix Thermal Insulation Issues

Generating, circulating, and preserving heat is a common wintertime gardening challenge for greenhouse users. But it’s not difficult to prevent this issue by taking the right course of action ahead of time. You must consider installing a greenhouse heater to ensure that your plants get adequate heat all season long. Couple your greenhouse heater with a new thermostat and greenhouse air circulation fan for better ventilation and heat diffusion.

The next step is to test and fix damaged insulation inside your greenhouse. A good starting point for this is a thorough window and roof inspection. Check for leaky sidings and weather stripping. Get rid of cracks and gaps by adding an insulant or a covering over your greenhouse.

However, extensive damage mandates timely repairs and fixes. Seek professional assistance if you spot broken windows, louvers, and vents. Don’t forget to check the door kits as winter wind and frost can seriously damage your greenhouse plants. Step up the insulation by installing additional caulking, silicon-based sidings, and light-diffusing linings.
