I can create a situation where we are accepting a rather large amount of heat through the, from the sun's energy and I can start to create a convective current that's gonna bring the cool air from inside the space, through our greenhouse, and then back into the space eventually falling down in there, and coming back around and creating this convective current of constantly bringing in nice, hot, new air as it gets cycled through this process. If I decide that I don't want that, I can close one of them off, and that'll stop the convective current. It could be that I have operable elements at the top of my greenhouse.
