How The Climate Battery Works
Climate battery technology is also known as ground-to-air heat transfer or low grade geothermal technology. Here in Atlantic Canada, climate batteries have the ability to allow farmers to grow almost continuously all year long – frost-free!
Take excess heat naturally generated by the greenhouse effect (the sun), and exhaust it out of the growing area (the inside of the greenhouse).
Climate Battery Greenhouse:
Uses thermostatically controlled fans and a buried network of solid and perforated pipe to force the excess hot air to radiate into the soil under the greenhouse which acts as a thermal battery, storing the heat for later use. When temperatures in the greenhouse drop during cold weather, the thermostatically controlled fans turn on again, drawing banked heat in the soil back up into the growing area.
