Save energy by measuring the outgoing radiation at night
When the skies are clear, outgoing thermal radiation (or heat loss) from your glasshouse is higher than at the same outside temperature in cloudy conditions. This means that during clear nights, the thermal screens should be closed sooner than when it’s is overcast. Outgoing radiation is measured with a pyrgeometer. Once it’s connected to your climate computer, you can program the thermal screens to close based on the outgoing radiation.
- Accurately controls your screens based on the outgoing radiation
- Lets you anticipate heat loss, so the pipe temperature can be adjusted accordingly
- Prevents surprises on your energy bills
