Getting the greenhouse ready for winter

Southern Burner natural gas heaterI replaced and upgraded my heater thermostat recently. There are three thermostats in the greenhouse. Two of them are for watering.

The new one has more programming options than the old one did and I wanted to correct a problem with the old setup. I had the temperature set for 62 F 24/7. That is a start but plants like to have a temperature range. On some days, the greenhouse got to 62 and no higher.

I have set a 72 F time from 11am until 6pm. Heating will be more expensive but the plants will like it better.
