    Hi, how can you control humidity? Any ideas? I’d like to reduce the humidity in my greenhouse but I don’t know how to do it…

    2Kw sounds far from economic budget

    Hi does the fan constantly run whilst on or just whilst heating? Is it cheap to run? Thanks

    Hi Craig, thanks for the video. It’s always great to see different types of set ups for a gh, at the end of the day if you have one, knowledge on how best to maintain temperatures are as important as the the things growing inside it! (Coz basically they won’t😄).
    I bought the same heater last year, and so far so good. I also indulged in one of these: https://www.greenhousesensation.co.uk/bio-green-thermo-2-digital-thermostat.html/ which works great in tandem with the heater. I use a Sensorpush for monitoring the temp & humidity, which obviously works in a similar fashion to your gadget. (Aren’t gadgets great😂)
    To try and keep an eye on the costings (my other half’s suggestion😄) I bought an Energenie power meter from “Nozama”, plus this can be used anywhere indoors.
    Conscious of the possible cost of heating I’m trying to run at the barest of temperature, I have the thermostat on 7c, fortunately here up North, the daytime temps aren’t too bad the moment🤞😄
