Roof ventilation is something that a lot of people overlook when they’re building an indoor growing area, but it’s absolutely crucial for some cultivars that you get good air circulation when you’re growing indoors. The problem with the conventional “opening your windows” method is that you’re inviting insects into your greenhouse, and this could turn into a big problem if you’re working with plants that aren’t necessarily hardy and are prone to infestation. Installing good ventilation in your structure means that you’ll be able to circulate healthy air to all of your plants while you filter out all of the insects that would normally fly into your indoor garden.
I spoke to an expert in the industry about this subject. John, who works with Genesis Roofing, was happy to go over the facts with me: “Keeping your greenhouse ventilated is really easy when you install a vent on the roof of the structure,” Genesis Roofing are Roof Vent Installers in Perth, WA, “And from what I understand, it’s really important that you’re getting good air circulation when you’re working with certain types of plants. Luckily, there are a lot of different varieties vents available that can keep your structure cool to control the temperature so you don’t have to open the windows.”
It’s an interesting topic, and it’s something that is often overlooked in the world of indoor plantscapes and indoor gardening. If you’re interested in finding out more information, there are many articles available online, although I don’t recommend the “Do it Yourself” option unless you’re an incredibly crafty person with a lot of trade skills. It’s better to call professionals for this one, and I plan to get vents installed in my garden room over the next couple of months during the hottest season in Australia.
