How A Solar Greenhouse Works

The sun shines through the clear areas in short waves.

These waves strike objects in the greenhouse and are reradiated as long waves, The long waves do not readily return through the glazing. This is known as the greenhouse effect. The greenhouse effect is similar to hot air trapped in a car on a sunny day with the windows closed. The inside air becomes warmer than the outside air.
