Small Greenhouse Heaters… Electric, Propane, Paraffin or Solar?
Small greenhouse heaters are a must for any backyard greenhouse, even more so than they are for the large commercial ones. Because the larger your greenhouse the more options you have to heat it… like building a HUGE compost pile right in the middle of it.
Given how important heating your greenhouse is to your year round gardening success it’s amazing how many hobby greenhouse gardeners fail to get proper heating equipment! Heck many of them don’t even know what their options are.
Once I realized the extent of this problem I went on a mission to find and educate folks about the best small greenhouse heaters available to them. Thus this collection of info.
Greenhouse Heaters Electric
Electric small greenhouse heaters are often just the thing for folks with a hobby greenhouse. They are usually on the small side making them stable on often what are often flimsy or makeshift shelves.

Greenhouse Propane Heaters
One of the nice thing about propane greenhouse heaters vs Kerosene is that it burns clean. Though these units tend to be on the noisy side and MOST need to be vented a greenhouse propane heater will pump out heat much faster than an electric heater.

Greenhouse Heaters Solar
Solar Powerd Greenhouse Heater…
Solar power for your greenhouse seems like a no brainer. And it is usually achieved with a large water filled heat sink. This pool of water is heated during the day and radiates the saved heat back out into the greenhouse at night.
This is why many folks incorporate an aquaponics system right into their small greenhouse from the get-go. Not only will the aquaponics system help keep the greenhouse warm, it will provide humidity and fertilizer for the greenhouse and potentially fish for you to eat as well.

I use an electric 1500 watt oil-filled radiator heater for my primary heating in a 140CF greenhouse. With a fan blowing across the top of the vanes, it does a really good job of keeping the greenhouse warm enough, most of the time. I am currently keeping it at 75 degrees while the outside temperature is in the upper 20s or low 30s. I have a 15amp circuit driving my fans, the space heater, and a small light. I have no more power available. So I’m looking for a tiny propane heater, something that can be left running for the coldest nights. I would like a low setting of no more than 1000 BTUs and a high setting of no more than 4000 BTUs. Do you know of any propane heaters that go down to 1000BTUs?
