As you learn more and experience how something works you come up with caculated opinions! I look at the tipical dome greenhouse and see too much wasted heat and light! The dome or hoop houses that i look at seem to be facing the wrong direction or lets say not the best direction! My reasoning is up for debate but here is what I think! +++ Most of the greenhouse I viewed are facing one long side south! This seems like it would be the best way to set the greenhouse but if you think about it the north side gets no sun and part of the sun from the south side passes right through the north side hitting the ground! This is a waste of heat and light. +++ If the greenhiouse length would be perpendicular to the noon sun for 5 hours the greenhouse would recieve 90 percent of the sun instead of only 50% !. +++ I think the A frame with insulated north outside wall and a reflective inside north wall will receive more light intensity than any other type of greenhouse! Light is even reflected back from the top of the north A frame wall because of the angle! The A frame greenhouse will have the south side face the noon day sun! I think thatthis is why the A frame greenhouse is best to become a solar water storage ultimate greenhouse!Does anyone have any other ideas along these lines?
