What kind of greenhouse grower are you?

A Cool House:

Our customer Jennifer lives in mild climate and wants
to winter over. Jen chose a greenhouse with single glass sidewalls and
a twinwall polycarbonate roof. She maintains a night temperature of
40 – 45 Fahrenheit (5 – 7 Celsius) to protect her fuchsias, begonias
and the polycarbonate roof adds extra protection for her tomatoes and
peppers in the summer. The best of both worlds!
A Warm House:

Tom lives in a colder climate that sees a significant
amount of snow but he wanted to grow citrus trees, orchids and foxgloves.
A Cape Cod fivewall polycarbonate was the perfect fit and with
very little additional heat, Tom could maintain the night temperature of
55 Fahrenheit (13 Celsius). The fivewall polycarbonate glazing allowed
for the best combination of light transmission and heat retention. The
steep pitch of the roof causes the snow to simply slide off!
A Hot House:

Nicholas wanted to create more living and growing space.
He liked the idea of the home attached Pacific double glass and then
was sold on its energy efficiency and was amazed at how easy is was to
maintain a night temperature of 65 Fahrenheit (18 Celsius). He upgraded
to the low E glass with the beauty capping and now has a three season
sitting and growing room for his tropical and rare houseplants.
