Heating your house with a hoophouse greenhouse

Here is pretty obvious evidence that a hoophouse (or 1/2 of one attached to the side of your house — facing south) can heat quite a bit of your house… I suppose any farmer who uses one could tell you what is typical for how early in the spring it is that it gets too hot such that it needs ventilation. And obviously even before that… if it is getting to 80F, that is plenty warm to add some heat to one’s home!


BTW, this is at a farm in Gill, MA — http://www.laughingdogfarm.com/
