“The garage door is one of the most important parts of a passive solar greenhouse”

Passive solar greenhouses may be a way to fight back the increasing energy prices. At the same time, it is crucial to pay attention to the smallest details when it comes to operating on razor-thin margins. In their latest video, Verge Permaculture explains the importance of an automated garage door for passive solar greenhouses.

“The garage door is one of the most important parts of a passive solar greenhouse,” they say. “This is activated based on a small computer and thermostat that determine when the greenhouse is too warm.”

They continue to explain that when the temperature hits 25 degree Celsius, the door automatically opens. “We get huge ventilation opportunities,” they say. “This prevents the greenhouse from getting to the 30-35 degrees Celsius, which is kind of the threshold for plants to stay healthy.”

So, the advice Verge Permaculture gives is to get an automatic garage door if you are planning to build a passive solar greenhouse.
