The How, What, and Why about Radiant Barrier insulation
How Radiant Barrier can benefit your greenhouse
Growing your own fruits, vegetables, and plants can be an enjoyable but challenging endeavor. A greenhouse can make the task more manageable by minimizing the negative effects of the elements.
While installing a greenhouse will create an environment more conducive to growing plants, you’ll need to decide how to maintain the conditions inside your space. Consider the installation of Radiant Barrier insulation to keep your greenhouse warm during the winter and cool during the summer.
Studies show that as much as 85% of the heat in a greenhouse escapes during the nighttime hours. The temperature fluctuations caused by this issue can be detrimental to plant life. Radiant Barrier’s products, Temptrol and TempShield, act to reflect direct sunlight and efficiently disperse heat and light throughout the greenhouse.
Temptrol and TempShield are more effective than comparable products because they are designed to allow for the escape of moisture, avoiding excess condensation that may disrupt the growing environment. The use of these barriers lets you control the hours of daylight and darkness to manipulate plants into flowering when you want them to.
Perhaps one of the most attractive features of Temptrol and TempShield is the amount of money they can save you in energy consumption. These powerful fabrics can be purchased in any amount needed, making them versatile and easy to install. With some basic sewing skills, you can turn the fabric into a custom cover or drape cloth for your greenhouse. Both products are puncture- and tear-resistant and require no maintenance.
Radiant Barrier’s fabric insulation products can be assets to your personal greenhouse. Increase the success rate of your garden and reduce energy consumption all with minimal effort and no ongoing maintenance. Protect your plants from the harsh elements and take control of the environmental variables affecting growth. You can cultivate a thriving garden any time of year with the help of Radiant Barrier.
