Yes,it works great,especially if a nighttime insulation is added..some
times they have a top and bottom vent so that you can take advantage
of the convection as well as radiation.there are many ways to configur
e Trombe walls,,,insulation sliding panels interior or exterior,thick
ness of wall,vented or no vent,,Malcomb Wells home in NJ?,incorporates
a trombe wall,and this is a common thing,using a variety of Solar-
options together so as to optimize advantage..keep digging!!goodluck.
