      The present study focuses on the potential applicability of attached sunspaces in Southern and Central Europe (winter season). Sunspace is a diffuse passive solution which reduces winter thermal losses and increases solar gains. Attached Solar Greenhouse Build It Solar- Sunspaces & Greenhouses Attached sunspaces can be a good way to solar heat your house, provide some additional living space, plant growing space, a place to read the newspaper and look at the views, and a place to hang the laundry for solar drying.

A portion of this extra energy can be conducted through, the common wall between the greenhouse and the building. In this.   Solar greenhouses are unique, unlike their poly film and glass metal frame counterparts, the insulating qualities will extend your growing season. Along with heated ground soil, an effective heat sink, solar powered ridge vents, circulating air and a supplemental but yet low cost heat source for those frigid nights is what plants need to survive in any cold season, and do not forget a little TLC.
