We're in an engineering group for school right now and looking at the best potential ways to heat and regulate heat in a greenhouse. We are in preliminary testing with a mock up greenhouse, just allowing sun to come in, while we record the temperature difference between the outside and inside at different point of the day.

We've been looking at alternative heating systems, such as a solar water system that supplies heat to an in-floor radiant heating system.

We also looked at solar air heating. However, deemed that water (even though more effort involved) seemed like the most efficient way to go.

A little more information can be provided if requested. We were looking for any insight from you pros!

Thanks,
Matt
