    Good ideas! If I add a greenhouse on the south side of my house, I will have to plan it out well before renting an excavator. I may put in pipes below the frost line to get some thermal assistance for winter and summer. I already have a wood stove near it so I think I would run some hot water into the greenhouse (maybe hook it to a passive water system so I get both the benefits of the woodstove and sunlight.

    The wood is a good choice if you are trying to keep cost down and especially if you have access to free wood. Also the ash from the wood should be added to the soil in the green house this way you get nutrient dense food.

    Hi. Nice video.You could add one more to get to 10. Geothermal heat pumps combine geothermal heating with electricity run compressors so you can use it almost anywhere in the world

    Where is Simple Tek located?

  9. Set on April 9, 2021 at 12:02 am

    This video just taught me that two more things exist, compost heating and climate batteries.. thanks!

    A wood stove for a tent is the only way. Never use electricity for heat.

    diesel heater work also?

  13. Keith Rose on April 9, 2021 at 12:09 am

    I like having a shed on the north side with wood stove in it.

  14. Simple Tek on April 9, 2021 at 12:12 am

    Please let me know if you are aware of any other method to heat a greenhouse!!!!

  15. ss_ss_ss on April 9, 2021 at 12:14 am

    very helpful vid, but please adjust your sound level regarding the music. i had to keep my finger hovering over the mute button when you transitioned from speaking to the incredibly loud music as you moved to the next way to heat a greenhouse.

  16. John Weiss on April 9, 2021 at 12:17 am

    4:08 That looks electric, not propane.

    It would be more informative if you told us where you were located.

  19. Paul Thompson on April 9, 2021 at 12:17 am

    Our small greenhouse uses heat lamps.

  20. Heather Sutton on April 9, 2021 at 12:18 am

    If your green house is close To your home . Dyer out let Can be hooked up to the green house . You can use old tv 📺 screen to use ☀️ shine to use the snow ❄️ to create steam . It’s free and very powerful . You can cook dinner too .

  21. Dom Plays Beat Saber on April 9, 2021 at 12:19 am

    I have a problem with my greenhouse when I leave it in the sun it gets so hot in there and the plants get so stressed I open it it’s instantly cold and also If I leave it closed when it’s not hot there going to be water and the mold forms on plants it’s basically rain in a greenhouse

  22. wendiellisatymail on April 9, 2021 at 12:21 am

    please cut that nerve wracking background music..

    can i use aluminum foil? or mirror?

  25. xgouldiex on April 9, 2021 at 12:25 am

    If you have a small greenhouse the little chinese diesel heaters used in rvs and motorhome are a good choose as you can vent the exhaust outside and it has a thermostat and if you play with the settings and run it on red diesel (tax free) cost very little to run

  26. John Wallis on April 9, 2021 at 12:27 am

    Surely the first thing you need to address when deciding how to ‘heat’ your greenhouse is whether you just want to keep the frost out during early spring when starting tender plants, or to heat it up to ‘growing temperature’ all the year round – that would make it a ‘hothouse’ and require a far more powerful heating system.

    Compost heat generation and solor. Yes!

  30. Mike Wood on April 9, 2021 at 12:31 am

    Nicely done! Sorry if I missed it but how long did the burn last on a jar of fuel and approximately what temp does it push out? Cheers.

  31. Kat's Eye View on April 9, 2021 at 12:31 am

    this is my first winter with my green house. right now its storage for pots and soils…

  32. bowlchamps37 on April 9, 2021 at 12:31 am

    Best greenhouse I saw was along the Transsiberian Railway. It was -62°C outside and 14°C inside with no heating.

  33. Mark Smileer on April 9, 2021 at 12:32 am

    it boils down to Adam and Eve spoke to our creators ,I personally believe it was more than one but regardless of the fact …what was the language they spoke to our creator(s) in????
    here’s where it gets really interesting no matter which concept of a higher power you choose to go with, it says that a higher power gave you a language they wanted to talk you in….to not only talk to them but everybody else …because it’s the perfect language language …now for some reason or another as the story goes. you know that all-knowing All-Seeing… all smarter than you in so many ways ….higher power… kind of power……. did something WRONG according to what a man said..a man came up with a story that said ….now the same creators think it’s time to forget that language and go with a whole bunch of new ones ..in fact the new ones, we’re willing to record n let you even remember as far as history is concerned …the Vatican does have more space than Disneyland, underground and its all full of books somebody’s keeping track and nobody’s telling you anything that’s what I mean by Sponged
    and if you sponge out the beginning and a whole lot of The Middle ….the end of it can be anything you want and somebody actually managed to make that statement true…most books will stay away from the word Creator or even creators …they will substitute a whole bunch of other words, which in the average person’s mind makes them think of creators while they are saying something completely different
    if you do a little bit of research in the 50s and 60s the US military has project Fishbowl and project Dominic which in short boiled down to, firing missiles of the spooky nookie kind, at the firmament and if that didn’t do anything ..then I don’t think our creators really gave a damn about some guy building a tower to try and touch the firmament and that’s how I came up with the fact that the Tower of Babel story is a very pretty story but not very true
    everybody keep askin why is it, that all of the space organizations utilize Vector symbology?? i’m sayin .. as one side is longer than the other;; it’s the number 7 and the seventh angel created was Lucifer or the name originally that was bestowed is EL .
    the most important msg they want put out there is when u die they want u to tell folks to go up, straight to hell…if hollywood is run by satanists n they keep tellin u god lives upstairs; that’s true…BUT ..if I like big buts and I cannot lie ,,then baby this one is the biggest buts of them all…ur creators that made the 7th angel of LITE ,who didnt like it in heaven n left,, called himself *the 1 true god* ,of hell..they live down stairs… Sumerian one of the 1st ones in our WRITTEN existence BAFF is on the top 5 of 1st names given to satan (who composes this song).. Hallelujah :means ur life belongs to Alla ( Satans Top 5 names);;; thers no remix,no remakes; thers 1 other version only kids can sing; n u can only wear black or wite,red or purple..kids can wear yellow…im sure u heard it n now watch in a new light https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fwMowPviUAQ all u saw was either satanic or satanic over tones n a flat earth for secrets in plain site….oh yeah its flat as fuk, *peace n love*…that’s as much conjecture as it is everything else ..except you have to consider that it’s being hidden by the same people that sponged, all of our languages and only put forward the ones they wanted to present to the rest of society.. if you start digging, anything past Sumerian,, it’s a brick wall.. unless of course you have access to the Vatican Library which I don’t ,,so I can only go on the facts that they’re trying to present secrets in plain sight; a good example would be “…Mother Mary comes to me, speaking words of wisdom, let it be…“ Tammuz , was the first person to Proclaim himself Satan in human form and his mother’s name was Mary….(the extra short version is) after Mother Mary took her kids life and stole all his Fame… that story can be found in the Satanic Bible…now most Christians will scream that you should not look at the Satanic Bible and that’s only because they don’t want you to see, the two books are virtually identical except the names have been changed, to protect the guilty …. but as long as you don’t look ,,,,,and by the way looking does not mean accepting… because I really don’t want to hear , how you think I’m pushing the satanic agenda
    they started with hiding the fact that *you can cure you of anything that’s wrong with you* to invent modern medicine; which cured cancer around 1945 but if they told mainstream that ;it’s completely cured…. how..FrEaKing HOW would they continue to siphon 120 million dollars a day for cancer research, plus another 50 million from NASA Who currently tripled its funding with the Artemis Space Program; you’re going to find various other means and methods , they manage to put forward to plunder and pillage approximately five hundred million dollars every single day just out of North America alone and then there’s the Russians and the EU on the other side….to fund various programs like the one I got stuck in???
    PS… I get as a very popular response to this post a person will start out saying this is all completely wrong but they never ever say what was said that was wrong or why it’s wrong in the first place ,,,
    i got the information necessary to stop this mess,,,if you had tools stopping this without breaking any laws n its all legally and peacefully… which is a lot better than the options that they’re asking you to pick,, believe me you’re going down a path they’re jerry-rigging for you;; if you want to find out a little more about that I can explain ,,just be ready to get some answers that have nothing to do with mainstream…
    I have a cool way of stopping this ,it involves finding someone who’s willing to stand up to the useless threats ..someone will want to see if you’re willing to Double Down on your beliefs ; if they attempt to go against the grain of what was expected when somebody created this phony pandemic since this is a live exercise with a goal of having everybody implanted under the guise of a vaccination …they are using the exact same Playbook the Nazis did,, first starving economy then present an alternative means,, only now it’s being done on a planetary scale..
    a little bit about me magnets stick to me like glue and they have a really cool way of keeping. it. Out of medical journals and Courts for that matter I have a way of …stopping this that’s why the person or persons we’re going to try my way what gets presents like crazy and that’s because they figured out a way abusing their MK Ultra project against any1 winning,, it helps a great deal if you can condalute the entire mainstream religion that will show you glimpses of what they want you to believe.. .. only to suit their needs…..a good way to look at this would be no matter ; which idea you believe ,no matter which religion you wish to go with

    thanks for the video. came up as a recommended since I have been watching videos of greenhouses and tunnels.

  41. ken simpson on April 9, 2021 at 12:46 am

    I use large tanks of rain water under the benches heated by a a solar vacuum tube heater drain back heat with a solar powered pump. I live in Canada with -30 c temp at night. I do have propane for emergency in the event of too many days with no sun.

  42. Anubis Ma-At on April 9, 2021 at 12:49 am

    In summary, there’s no easy solution for me setup.

    why the irritating music???? WHY???????

  44. GrifB on April 9, 2021 at 12:49 am

    You could hook up solar panels to the electric heaters, if you also had a battery you could store and release that during the night.

  45. Bret Harley on April 9, 2021 at 12:51 am

  46. Jan Freez on April 9, 2021 at 12:51 am

    An interesting channel… I have a small greenhouse 6×4 in the south of the UK… So, I usually add insulation (bubble wrap inside) and as a heating source using some tealights or paraffine heater with my DIY terracota pot heater on the top…

  47. Chuck Kottke on April 9, 2021 at 12:52 am

    Another method: I restored Grandpa’s old European style greenhouse which is heated with wood, and the masonry chimney runs horizontally the entire length until the very end. For optimal use of the heat it works great and the brick acts as thermal mass storage (plus one side was filled with sand). It works pretty well if you’ve got the time to heat it up once a day.🌄. Plus it’s inexpensive to build if you have a source for used brick.🌞 Think Russian Stove design. Plus it works as a passive solar thermal mass as it runs the length of the greenhouse beneath the slanted windows.🌻

    Very useful information. Thanks for sharing.

  49. Tony Hardy on April 9, 2021 at 12:55 am

    There is another way to help heat, using huge body/s of water to collect and store the suns energy during the day to help stabilize the temps at night. It also helps warm during a cold day, or any day in winter late fall or early spring, but with the rays shining in the water it is sucking up the energy to release inside the house. Different methods of achieving it, but one method is to allow the sun to shine thru green house and hit the huge body of water in the middle of the house, and have your greens and stuff all around the remaining space, then in summer design it so the plants will grow and cover the body of water shading it from the sun, and this will help cool the house because the body of water is maintaining a cool ground temp. Note: the water pond in the middle of the house needs to be in ground, even past your local freeze line, this way it takes advantage of the stable year round temp of the ground under the frost line in your area. The water will conduct to the same temp as the ground and never freeze, and never get too hot in summer, especially if you allow your plants to grow over the pond in the summer. And in winter, as long as you allow the sun to bake on it and keep your greenhouse over it, it will never freeze up like the outside ponds. Plus you use the water to feed plants, it will be RAIN water, and this keeps the water moving. And also you can have grates to walk over the pond like it is not even there during the summer, but it will be keeping stable temps in your house then too, and you can keep grates on during the winter too, or remove some to get the most amount of sun on the water as possible, just put up hand rails where the open spots are.
