This package for our 42' Growing Dome greenhouse kit adds a Greenhouse Cooling Fan for extra ventilation and two misting systems for cooling. You may choose between the Electric Cooling Fan or the Solar Cooling Fan, but the Electric Cooling Fan comes standard unless otherwise specified. However, if you purchase the Solar Powered Cooling Upgrade and the Desert Cooling Package, the Desert Cooling Package will come standard with one Solar Cooling Fan unless otherwise specified. The evaporative cooling effects of a full-surround Misting System easily connects to your garden hose. For the 42' Growing Dome, you will receive two misting systems; one misting system that comes with 11 nozzles and another with 20 nozzles.
Consider adding the Desert Package if you live in a very hot and dry area of the country, as you may find that the standard combination of cooling features may not be sufficient to cool your Growing Dome in the summer.
If you can answer “Yes” to any of these questions, then we highly recommend the Desert Cooling Package for your Growing Dome greenhouse kit.
- Do you live in a desert or semi-desert climate (i.e. hot climate with low humidity)?
- Do temperatures get above 95° F on a regular basis?
If you live in an extremely hot environment, you may need more than the Desert Cooling Package to sufficiently cool your Growing Dome. Solar swamp coolers manufactured by Southwest Solar are also a great option for hot, dry climates. If you live in a humid climate, you may need to reach out to a local heating/air conditioning (HVAC) supplier and/or electrician to assist you with purchasing and installing an air conditioner and/or a dehumidifier.
Evaporative Coolers can be easily added to the Growing Dome for additional cooling if required. Ask us about what types of coolers are compatible with the Growing Dome.
