The concept of cooling a greenhouse with thermal buoyancy and wind goes back to the start of controlled environment. All greenhouses constructed prior to the 1950’s experienced some kind of vents or louvers that were opened to enable the excess heat to flee and cooler outside surroundings to enter.
When polyethylene originated with large sheets within the whole roof, placing vents on the roof proved difficult. Engineers then came up with the concept of using fans that pull outside surroundings through louvers in one endwall and exhaust it out the opposite end. With thermostatic control, this is, and still may be the accepted method for cooling many structures where positive air movement is needed.
Growers with hoophouses have found that roll-up sides work well for warm time of year ventilation. Both manual and motorized systems are available. A location with good summer season breezes and plenty of space between houses is needed. It helps to have greenhouses made with a vertical Greenhouse Exhaust Fan sidewall up to the elevation of the attachment rail to reduce the amount of rain that may drip in.
Greenhouses with roof and sidewall vents are powered by the principle that high temperature is removed by a pressure difference created by wind and temperature gradients. Wind plays the major part. In a smartly designed greenhouse, a wind swiftness of 2-3 miles/hour provides 80% or even more of the ventilation. Wind moving over the roof creates vacuum pressure and sucks the heated surroundings out the vent. If sidewall vents are open, cool replacement surroundings enters and drops to the floor level. If the sidewall vents are closed, awesome air enters the bottom of the roof vent and the heated are escapes out the top of the vent.
