How To Work Out What Size Heater You Need
|The size and configuration of the tubular heaters you require for your greenhouse, lean-to or cold frame, will depend on the size of the location, the heat you wish to maintain and the external ambient temperature.|
A 6' x 8' glass greenhouse with a desired standard minimum temperature of 45°F (7°C), allowing for the outside ambient temperature to drop to 20°F(-7°C).
|* Calculate the total glass area of the sides, end and roof sections = 200 sq. ft.|
|* 200x10 = 2000 watts. Total watts required from your tubular heaters.|
|* A 6' quad heater or alternatively a 6' triple and a 4' double as shown in the table below based on 80 wpf, would provide the total watts required.|
