Greenhouse ventilation and air circulation by Enerdes®

For an optimal greenhouse climate, ventilation is essential. For all types of greenhouses, conventional or semi-closed greenhouses, we have the best ventilation option available. We have several techniques available for the best ventilation using forced ventilation, air distribution hoses and overpressure. Enerdes supplies ventilation systems to greenhouses as big as 13 ha. Depending on your climate and ventilation wishes, our engineers will guide you through the process and together we will find the best option for you. Please feel free to contact us.

The Enerdes expertise

Ventilation in greenhouses

Enerdes supplies everything that is needed for optimal greenhouse ventilation, air circulation and air distribution. Below, you can find our patented double air distribution hoses for optimal air distribution. Here, you can also find the most energy efficient fans with a long life span for your greenhouse. 

One of the most important factors in a successful greenhouse operation is proper air quality for your crops. Greenhouse ventilation and air circulation are essential for your plants and Enerdes develops and manufactures air circulation systems for greenhouses that allow you to achieve perfect growing conditions on every square inch in your greenhouse. Enerdes has decades of experience providing greenhouses with technology that helps them achieve perfect air quality. Our history in climate control systems goes back to 1910! That is over a hundred years of development and innovations for the greenhouse industry. Curious what we can do for your greenhouse? Feel free to contact us!

Greenhouse ventilation, air circulation and air distribution Enerdes

Greenhouse fan supplied by Enerdes

You can achieve optimal air circulation in your greenhouse by getting the following things right:

  1. Fan sizing – Choose the right type of greenhouse fan: Enerdes is the exclusive supplier of EBMPapst fans. These are extremely energy efficient fans, very suitable for greenhouse applications. Many different types are available. We can help you make the best choice.
  2. Right number of greenhouse fans: Enerdes can model your greenhouse and determine the perfect number of fans that will allow you to have the best air circulation and greenhouse ventilation, but not unnecessarily many, as to save investment and operating costs.
  3. Fan location – Determine the right position greenhouse fans: You can have many circulation fans in your greenhouse, but if they are not positioned optimally, undesirable air flow effects can occur. For example: If you do not have strategic ventilation points, vortices may develop in one area of your greenhouse and stagnant air in another. Enerdes can model the air flow in your greenhouse and can tell you the best fan location distribution.

Enerdes also provides the system and control technology, so you can monitor and control your fan speed at any moment. If you would like to receive advice or a quotation on how to optimize your greenhouse air distribution from Enerdes, feel free to contact us.

Greenhouse vent

The control over greenhouse ventilation differs for conventional greenhouses versus semi-closed greenhouses. We have much experience with designing and installing climate control systems for both types of greenhouses. It is important to have a company with greenhouse climate expertise like Enerdes, model and compute the optimal greenhouse ventilation and air circulation for you. Based on your unique greenhouse, Enerdes can advise you on how much fresh air intake and air exhausts you need. We can advise you on how to achieve over pressure with minimal effort and energy consumption in order to keep undesirable pollution and insects out of your greenhouse and how to avoid under pressure. Options are:

  • Fresh air intakes with HEPA grade filters, to avoid any contaminants from entering your greenhouse
  • Exhausts with or without odor control
  • Double air blowers, for energy efficient heating and cooling of your greenhouse
  • Roof vents
  • Pad and fan greenhouse

Automatic greenhouse vent by Enerdes

Enerdes develops advanced high tech greenhouse technology systems that are completely integrated. This results in a fully automated greenhouse control system, that you can monitor and adjust if necessary. Based on information from pressure, temperature and humidity sensors hanging inside and outside the greenhouse, the fans from the fresh air intake and the exhausts will be automatically regulated. Similarly to how the greenhouse vent can be automatically regulated or manually controlled. Enerdes control systems integrate and control all climate systems automatically like fans, valves, heaters and chillers in order to achieve the perfect air quality and greenhouse conditions for your crop.

Greenhouse ventilation air circulation air distribution

Enerdes circulation fan greenhouse

Air circulation in a greenhouse can be achieved in a  few different ways:

  • Air circulation fans. These are mostly placed in the top of your greenhouse and can provide mostly horizontal air distribution.
  • Air hoses in the top of your greenhouse. These optimize the air circulation in your greenhouse even further, by either bringing in fresh air, heated air or cooled air, or just moving air. The air distribution can be controlled by the position of the puncture holes in the air hose.
  • Air hoses under the gutters. Air circulation close to your plants is very important in order to avoid stagnant air near your plants and high humidity levels. These conditions give a higher risk on plant diseases and mold development.

Enerdes is the exclusive supplier of air circulation fans and the fans that are best suited for being placed at the beginning of an air hose (also known as air tube, air duct, convention tube, poly duct). These fans are energy efficient, produce low noise levels and can be variable speed controlled. We can supply both EC fans and AC fans. Enerdes can install them in such a way, that you can either control the speed of certain groups of fans or even adjust the power of every single fan.

Enerdes greenhouse ventilation system

Some might wonder: Do greenhouses need ventilation?

The undeniable answer is: YES! Depending on the crop, certain types of chemicals will build up and your plants will be needing fresh air every now and then. It is also healthier for employees working in the growing space. When it comes to a suitable greenhouse ventilation system, Enerdes can help control your greenhouse temperature, humidity levels and air quality with advanced greenhouse technology. Our inhouse developed systems and innovations have been applied in greenhouse all over the world.

Enerdes greenhouse air circulation

Air circulation is different from ventilation. Greenhouse ventilation concerns the process of taking fresh air in and exhausting other air out in order to keep the right pressure in your greenhouse. Air circulation is purely the movement of air. Air movement and air distribution is very important for the health of your plants. Stagnant air increases the risk of plant diseases and mold development. Air distribution provides a homogeneous temperature and humidity distribution for all plants everywhere in your greenhouse. This is very important for constant and repeatable product quality and crop yields.

Greenhouse air distribution and greenhouse HVAC

Apart from the movement of air, the air distribution in your greenhouse, it is also very important that this air has suitable temperature and humidity levels for you plants. Enerdes greenhouse HVAC systems are developed such they provide your greenhouse with high quality air at the desired temperature, moisture content and CO2 levels, with minimal energy consumption. Our systems recycle water and waste heat as much as possible. For cost saving greenhouse technology and environmentally friendly growing solutions, contact Enerdes!
