  1. I use a system similar to this but it has two other inputs. A timer that you can adjust how often it will check the temperature and respond. The other controls how wide the sides will open or close per check. In Canada, on a real sunny day when it is minus 20 Celsius outside,  it could get upwards of 35 Celsius in the greenhouse, so you cannot afford the sides to open wide, and not for long. I think this controller with two motors was around 1500.00 Canadian.

  2. Not to be a buzzkill… but I sure hope he isn't growing on those table beds… the NRCS program is direct soil planting only…. I only have a year left on the grant for mine 🙂

  3. He's probably going to want another fan and louver to move that air a lot faster. I have a larger single fan on a much shorter greenhouse and it really doesn't do what I had expected. If you or he does the math, you'll see what I mean. Sure, it'll help a little, but so much more with more air circulation from outside. LOVE the automated side curtains.

  4. Is (inside house) 216 square feet enough space to do a Microgreen business? do you have to wash the greens after harvest, where would I put washing and drying station? and then the walk-in cooler? or should I just build a green house outside and start from there? all these questions are stopping me from even starting it. sorry if this isnt the place to ask this, but everywhere else i have asked get no response. tyia

  5. Spot on set up, next time you're there maybe suggest that his thermo stat can be moved up and down the board a few inches at a time just to sit at the same hieght as the plants height. 👍

  6. Great video thanks. Can someone please explain to me the placement of fans to create circular flow he briefly mentions at the end? How and where and direction, to place them to achieve the desired airflow?
