    a good heater and swamp cooler for $150 ? Good luck. I paid 220 or so for my swamp cooler and it was a returned item so i got a disscounted price.. Plus my wife works there... And a heater, you're looking for a electric one? Get one with a fan i think... I have a oil filled one in my little green house and 1500 watts or oil heat doen't keep up. even with my mild "cools"

    In order to determine how much heating you need a number to shoot for. It takes a whole lot more heater to reach 75 vs 40 when it is -20 outside. What is the greenhouse covered in, material and thickness?

    You are not making this easy Kirk ;<

    What type of material is the greenhouse glazing made of. Polycarbonate? layers, thickness? Glass?? single/double? polyethylene? inflated?

    You mentioned a heater. Any idea how many btu? Is it one of those radiator looking oil filled? How many watts?
