The concept of cooling a greenhouse with thermal buoyancy and wind goes back to the start of managed environment. All greenhouses built prior to the 1950’s got some type of vents or louvers which were opened to allow the excess heat to flee 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 concept of using followers that attract outside surroundings through louvers in one 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 atmosphere movement is needed.

Growers with hoophouses have discovered that roll-up sides work well for warm time of year ventilation. Both manual and motorized systems can be found. A spot with good summer season 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 reduce the amount of rain that can drip in.

Greenhouses with roof and sidewall vents operate on the principle that warmth is removed by a pressure difference created by wind and Greenhouse Vent Fan temperature gradients. Wind performs the major part. In a smartly designed greenhouse, a wind speed 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 up, cool replacement surroundings enters and drops to the ground 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.
