Attached Solar Greenhouse
Located in Grand Junction, Colorado, this attached solar greenhouse experiences intense summer heat, including 100+ daytime highs which make summer gardens challenging. Ceres’ design keeps the greenhouse cool to grow year-round using a partially insulated and shaded roof, strategic glazing, a GAHT system, and back-up swamp cooler. The greenhouse adds to the home’s square footage and value. The custom design blends with the home and adds a sustainable focal point to the backyard. The attached greenhouse vents excess heat into the home during the winter through a shared window, reducing heating bills.
