Small greenhouse for heat exchange only!

On a sunny day can a small greenhouse reach 150 degrees if it is insulated on the north wall and double or tripple plasic or glass! ! If it can reach that temp even for several hours it could heat just about anyhing using water transfer or air transfer! How can I get the temp that high with just the sun?

Look up solar cooking. I forgot a hand broadcast spreader inside a 16 qt. stainless steel bowl. Went back and found a plastic blob.

How small of an area are you talking.

My 12 x 16 greenhouse has reached 120F many careless times in the summer.

Mine has gone up to 120 in the spring many times and I had to open a window. ! Once 150 degrees is reached the collection of extra heat is easy to transfer to another area. I would think that several radiators could transfer the heated water fast!. Even baseboad heaters would work!
