Greenhouse Fans Chart

This chart shows the typical # of degrees warmer the inside of the greenhouse will be versus the outside air temperature if the ventilation system is running constantly.


- Chart assumes the exhaust fan and intake(s) are installed in opposite end walls (as shown below without any other openings near the fan).

- Individual results may vary. Chart does not take into account factors that can affect results like greenhouse shape, covering type, and area's sun intensity.
