If an existing greenhouse is not energy efficient, many improvements can be made. A few examples include:

  • Sealing all air leaks. Caulk and weather-strip window frames, door frames, or any other openings. Lubricate louvers and keep vents in good operating condition to ensure a tight seal. Seal cracks in the walls and repair any holes in the plastic or glass.
  • Insulating the existing foundation and sidewalls. Insulate the sides of an existing knee wall with insulation boards; remember to leave a small airspace between the insulation and the sidewall to prevent freezing.
  • Using shades or thermal blankets. Up to 85% of greenhouse heat loss happens at night. Shades or thermal blankets can reduce this energy loss by 20-50%. Open shades or thermal blankets six to twelve inches at a time to allow air temperatures to mix naturally, ensuring a less dramatic change in temperature.
  • Leaving shades open during snowstorms. This allows heat to reach the roof and prevent snow accumulation.

Solar Innovations' greenhouse designs incorporate numerous energy saving strategies and components.
