I attended a little seminar at a local supplier for greenhouses, gardening supplies and such on general "Hobby Greenhouse Info".
The presenter was knowledgeable and had some great suggestions and tips.
My pick for best tip: (For Cold Weather Starts)
Before your initial start-up, put the heat on and let it run for a few days. Then shut it off for a few days. Apparently this will trick any bugs into wake-up mode and when you shut it down quickly a few days later, they will suffer and many will die. Also, this will give you an opportunity to check minimum temperatures at night, with no plants.
When you turn the heat the 2nd time, wipe it down with soapy water and start moving your plants in.
