By using a model to show the energy balance in a greenhouse you can see at a glance where the energy losses are likely to arise. Evaporation uses expensive energy and this rushes out the vents when a grower opens them to reduce the relative humidity. This can be done differently say Dutch researchers of Wageningen UR Greenhouse Horticulture. The more uniform the greenhouse climate the more the relative humidity can be allowed to rise.
