The efficient SB Non-Vented Propane Heater from Solexx is a perfect way to keep your greenhouse at an optimal temperature on even the coldest days. It circulates warm are throughout the greenhouse while venting combusted gases and fumes outside, protecting sensitive plants.
Originally designed for orchid greenhouses, this thermostatically-controlled enclosed flame heater circulates heat from the floor up. This keeps the entire greenhouse at a constant level as the roof temperature is usually only 5° to 7° above the floor temperature.
No electricity is needed at all, meaning that your greenhouse will stay heated even during power outages. The SB Propane Heater does not require venting, though a fresh air intake is required. At 20000 BTU, this powerful propane heater can easily and economically warm even large hobby greenhouses and will provide years of comfortable climate for your plants.
