There are 4 choices in insulating a greenhouse.
1. Bubble Wrap - This is the cheapest and cost effective option to insulate your greenhouse but the downside is, it only lasts around 3-4 seasons.
2. Thermal Screens- These screens are made of clear translucent materials which prevents heat from rising above and traps the warm air below the greenhouse where the plants are located.
3. Base Cladding- This traps heat with the use of polystyrene panels installed at the base of the greenhouse. This is placed in the space between the greenhouse and the ground and prevents heat from going out
4. Double Glazing- The most efficient and expensive way to insulate your greenhouse that is built at the same time the greenhouse is built.
