Idroterm Serre

A system to reduce greenhouse heating costs

The cold season has started and with it comes concerns about the increased cost of the fuel used to heat protected crops. According to Idroterm Serre, it is essential to invest in efficient and effective systems that enable the heating of greenhouses only where needed, e.g. near the plants.

In the "Sali-scendi" adjustable-height radiant systems, the exclusive Idroheat aluminum pipes are kept low for most of the time, and they are only lifted if operators need access or to enable the passing of irrigation bars.

The heat is mainly radiated, limiting the convective effect and therefore dispersion in the top part of the greenhouses. In addition, heating the area around plants limits the condensation on the leaves preventing the spreading of fungi.

What is more, as the system contains little water, it has a low inertia and therefore a quick response when turned on. The hot water temperature is always adjusted by motorized valves controlled by the Idrofarm 4.0 computerized system, which optimizes all greenhouse systems (ventilation, shading-insulation, heating, artificial lighting) according to the temperature, humidity and light parameters set for the specific crop. 

The Sali-scendi heating system is particularly appreciated by nurseries and all those protected-crop operators trying to reduce costs and improve system efficiency.
