Does Modular Greenhouses have to do the install?
That's a great question! Anyone can assemble the greenhouse, but we do require that you hire a contractor to install the anchors in order for the warranty guarantee to remain valid. However, we do offer an anchoring service for a fee of $250 within 50 miles of our facility in Reno, NV.
What do you recommend for cooling?
The size of the recommended swamp cooler for your greenhouse will depend on the size of the greenhouse you are purchasing. For greenhouses that are 8 x 16 or smaller, we recommend a 4500 CFM swamp cooler. If you are planning on purchasing a greenhouse that is larger than 8 x 16, we recommend a 5900 CFM swamp cooler. However, it is important to note that the sizing may also depend on the climate of your specific location as different regions may have different temperature and humidity levels. We have provided links below for options you can purchase yourself.
While there are other options available for cooling a greenhouse, we have found that swamp coolers are typically the quietest and most effective. However, if you are interested in learning about other cooling options, we would be happy to recommend some for you.
Are we able to add onto the greenhouse?
Definitely! That's the great thing about our modular greenhouses. If you purchase a smaller greenhouse and later decide that you would like a larger one, we can simply add additional modules to your existing greenhouse.
Depending on your location, there may be restrictions on the allowable square footage of your greenhouse. It is important to ensure that you stay within these limits to avoid any issues. Additionally, you may need to obtain a permit for your greenhouse construction. It is important to check with your local authorities to determine the specific regulations and requirements for greenhouse construction in your area.
What needs to be done with our ground for our installation?
Before we can install your greenhouse, it is important that the ground is leveled and cleared of any debris. Additionally, we will need to be notified if the soil in your area is unusually hard or sandy, as different types of soil require different types of anchors. For instance, if the soil is loose and sandy, we will need to use our largest 36" anchors to ensure that your greenhouse is properly secured.
How much power should we run to the Greenhouse?
The amount of power needed for your greenhouse will depend on its size. For greenhouses that are 8x12 or smaller, a single 20 amp circuit should suffice. However, for larger greenhouses, it is ideal to have 40 amp service, which would consist of 2 - 20 amp circuits. This would allow you to easily run 2 small electric heaters or other devices. If power availability is limited, you may be able to make do with 30amp service and run 2 - 15 amp circuits instead.
