West OK Greenhouse

lizgyrl(7)December 11, 2011

I have drawn plans to build my own poly-carbonate panel wood-framed greenhouse. It will be a 12'x 12' lean-to style (but not against a wall, it will be out in the yard) The north wall will be my short wall and my entrance/large wall will face the south. My question is ventilation. It gets insanely hot but I do live on a hill that gets more than a breeze. Has anyone put an attic turbine on a greenhouse? I will not have electricity (it'll create winter heating concern later)

im sure people have put attic turbines on them. Just be sure you have a few vents down low so you create air flow.

I attached a link that calculates fan and shutter size based on the size of your greenhouse if you ever go electric. You could always get a solar power attic fan if you need more than just passive air flow.


Here is a link that might be useful: fan sizing
