Do they get hot in summer?
Like a greenhouse, the temperature in the Garden Igloo® will always be several degrees hotter than the external temperature; therefore it will get hot in summer. Keeping all the air vents open will help to reduce the heat inside. However, during sunny spring - summer days, when the outside temperature is above 10°C, the interior air temperature can rise to excessive heat levels (+60°C). These conditions may harm your Garden Igloo® structure, any furniture inside, or your pets and plants.
When the outside temperature is above 10°C, it is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED to monitor the interior temperature of Garden Igloo®, keep the air vents open during day time, and when the interior temperature exceeds +40°C, completely remove the transparent winter cover and replace it with the summer canvas (Canopy Cover).
Do they stay warm in winter?
In winter close the windows and the dome will heat up several degrees, especially when it is very cold but the sun is out. It is also ideal for cutting out the wind chill factor. It will require roughly 40 % less heating in winter than a standard greenhouse due to the geodesic shape. This is due to its low volume for its base area and the fact that its surface is always at right angles to the sun’s rays even in low winter sun, heating it up naturally.
Do I need a solid base or foundations?
Garden Igloo® can be installed both on soft and hard surfaces. On hard surfaces like concrete, wood deck, etc., use the metal clamps with suitable screws. At softer grounds like soil, lawn, etc., you may use the plastic poles or provided base weight kit to fix your Garden Igloo® to the ground.
