The structure in which interior and exterior flow channels are separated by thermal insulation layer differs from the single-channel structure of conventional Trombe wall

for lightweight buildings in temperate and hot climates.
The open office plan is not only more accessible, it is inherently more welcoming, and daylight from the clerestory and the glass trombe wall
(now open to the workspace) reaches into every corner.
As a caution, the Trombe wall
will add some heat in the summer due to diffuse solar radiation, even with the overhangs.
A solar chimney consisted of roof solar collector, and Trombe wall
was experimentally investigated by Khedari et al.
This paper is focused on direct solar gains strategies (i.e., the solar gains are admitted directly into a thermally-massive living space within the house, rather than sunspace or Trombe wall
But sometime during our brief initial chat with the Overmyers the words "greenhouse" and "Trombe wall
" slid into the conversation and worked their way to center stage, and we just had to see with our own eyes how it was possible to maintain a year-round greenhouse against the harsh conditions encountered at 9,100 feet of elevation, coupled with the measured energy reserves available to off-grid homesteaders.
Its solar-smart design includes a tiled floor to store heat from the sun, a south-facing greenhouse window, and a brick-faced trombe wall
to collect heat from sun through clerestory windows.
My next application of solar heat will be an attached green-house, possibly with a Trombe wall
The 650-square-foot addition has proven energy-efficient: its stucco walls, ceramic tile floor, and masonry-block trombe wall
(visible in the photograph at upper right) all retain much warmth.
At the side of the bay, load-bearing posts and beams frame seven clear glass panels, four of which enclose a second trombe wall
(since it isn't load-bearing, it qualified for a tax credit).
