The concept of cooling a greenhouse with thermal buoyancy and wind dates back to the start of controlled environment. All greenhouses constructed prior to the 1950’s got some form of vents or Greenhouse Vent Fan louvers which were opened to enable the excess heat to escape and cooler outside air flow to enter.
When polyethylene was developed with large sheets covering the whole roof, placing vents on the roof proved difficult. Engineers then came up with the idea of using supporters that draw outside atmosphere through louvers in a single endwall and exhaust it out the contrary end. With thermostatic control, this was, and still is the accepted method for cooling many structures where positive air movement is needed.
Growers with hoophouses possess found that roll-up sides work very well for warm period ventilation. Both manual and motorized systems can be found. A spot with good summer season breezes and lots of space between homes is needed. It helps to have greenhouses made with a vertical 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 warmth is removed by a pressure difference created by wind and temperature gradients. Wind performs the major role. In a smartly designed greenhouse, a wind speed of 2-3 kilometers/hour provides 80% or more of the ventilation. Wind passing over the roof creates a vacuum and sucks the heated atmosphere out the vent. If sidewall vents are open, cool replacement atmosphere enters and drops to the floor level. If the sidewall vents are closed, awesome air enters underneath of the roof vent and the heated are escapes out the very best of the vent.
