How to calculate heat requirements:

The following formula can be used to determine the approx. heating requirements of your greenhouse.

 

A * D * k = amount of electrical power in wattage    

A = the total roof and wall surface area of the greenhouse;   D = the difference between coldest outdoor winter temperature and the night temperature desired in the greenhouse  ; k = amount of heat passage depending on the glazing of the greenhouse

k-amounts for different glazing:  Single glazing 4mm – k = 6  ; Polycarbonate 6mm – k = 3.6  ; Polycarbonate 8mm – k = 3.3  ; Polycarbonate 10mm – k = 3  ; Polycarbonate 16mm – k = 2.3  ; Perspex – k = 2.8  ; Double glazing – k = 3   Subtract 30 % from the calculated wattage if using bubble wrap foil.

Subtract another 30 % if it’s a lean-to greenhouse on heated wall.
