Control Humidity Using Dehumidifiers
Closing the greenhouse, spreading thermal screens, and using powerful grow lights, causes a serious issue – high humidity.
Traditionally, greenhouse growers would combine heating and venting in order to combat humidity. However, this method is problematic, being very inefficient, and often even ineffective.
Letting air out of the greenhouse also releases heat, so growers need to constantly reheat. This constant heating requires massive amounts of energy and is a major expense for growers. Especially in colder climates like those found in N. America and Europe.
The heat and vent method for humidity control was developed decades ago, long before greenhouse dehumidifiers were commercially available. Today, state of the art, commercial horticulture dehumidifiers are readily available, and any grower can incorporate them in the greenhouse.
Using dehumidifiers to remove humidity from the greenhouse completely solves the problem of humidity, with zero ventilation. So growers can keep the greenhouse completely closed, and treat humidity from the inside.
DryGair dehumidifiers are designed specifically for horticultural environmental control. They’re optimized for maximum energy efficiency and are engineered to be as effective as possible under real-world greenhouse conditions. Using DryGair, rather than ventilation, can save 50% on energy consumption, and more.
DryGair dehumidifiers also provide the added benefit of air circulation, included in every DG model. The patented air circulation mechanism uses 360° air distribution to ensure uniform conditions everywhere in the greenhouse.
Maximize Yields and Energy Savings
Combining thermal screens, efficient lighting and DryGair dehumidifiers creates the perfect conditions for greenhouse growing. It gives growers full control over their growing conditions, without compromising humidity.
The profitability of using these growing principles is directly impacted by energy prices. As energy prices rise, this method becomes more and more profitable, reducing the ROI on the necessary systems and equipment.
DryGair is compatible with all controlled environments, including greenhouses and grow rooms, as well as hydroponic and vertical farming. For more information, consultation, or to receive a professional recommendation, please contact us.
