which CFD software is most suitable to model accurately internal air temperatures in a sunspace / glasshouse? - The glasshouse is naturally ventilated (no HVAC System), it has shading devices, the temperature in spaces adjacent to the glasshouse needs to be modelled as well.

We have modelled with Fluidyn a similar case concerning a large atrium with walls and ceilings made of glass. For more information, please visit our website at www.fluidyn.com or contact me.

You should consider Flovent by Flomerics. It has been around since 1990 and is designed specifically to model ventilation/thermal design in buildings. Check out the website www.flovent.com or contact me and I'll provide some more info.

I have little experience with glasshouse. But, I think radiation is the most important factor to get an accurate solution. If so, CFD-ACE+ can be a good solution. Just visit http://www.cfdrc.com .
