The concept of cooling a greenhouse with thermal buoyancy and wind dates back to the beginning of managed environment. All greenhouses constructed just before the 1950’s had some kind of vents or louvers that were opened to enable the excess heat to escape and cooler outside air to enter.
When polyethylene was developed with large sheets covering the whole roof, placing vents on the top proved difficult. Engineers after that came up with the idea of using fans that draw outside atmosphere through louvers in a single Greenhouse Vent Fan endwall and exhaust it out the opposite end. With thermostatic control, this is, and still is the accepted way for cooling many structures where positive surroundings movement is needed.
Growers with hoophouses possess discovered that roll-up sides work very well for warm period ventilation. Both manual and motorized systems can be found. A spot with good summertime breezes and plenty of space between homes is needed. It can help to have greenhouses designed with a vertical sidewall up to the elevation of the attachment rail to lessen the quantity of rain that can drip in.
Greenhouses with roof and sidewall vents operate on the principle that 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 rate of 2-3 miles/hour provides 80% or even more of the ventilation. Wind moving over the roof creates a vacuum and sucks the heated atmosphere out the vent. If sidewall vents are open, cool replacement air enters and drops to the ground level. If the sidewall vents are closed, cool air enters the bottom of the roof vent and the heated are escapes out the very best of the vent.
