Q. When will my greenhouse be shipped if it was purchased “on backorder“?
Backorder means that currently we are sold out on a specific greenhouse, and do not have it available for a prompt shipment/local pick up.
Typically, once we go low on stock for particular unit, we put in a request for restocking with our production.
Depending on the volume of orders/backorders, it can take between few weeks to couple months to get the restock and have it ready for shipping.
You are welcome to contact our Customer Service to receive more accurate shipping date of a backorder.

Q. It’s Spring/Summer season, could that affect the time when I will receive my ClimaPod Greenhouse order?
We always try to have all orders shipped as soon as possible, but during Spring and Summer seasons (March – June) there are some factors that may delay the order transit time.
Please consider additional 5-10 days for your order to be processed, prepared, and shipped from our warehouse.
At this time of the year, it is typical for shipping carriers to have very busy routes which require extra time for transit of your greenhouse order.
Additionally, during Spring season we tend to have extremely high volume of orders which require additional time for preparing and shipping.
We will do our best to have all orders shipped promptly and in the order they were received. You are always welcome to contact our sales support team to get current shipping transit estimates, status of your shipment, and tracking information.
Q. How does the greenhouse ship to me?
The greenhouse is shipped via Mainfreight, C.H. Robinson, Fedex Ground, UPS Ground, or other Ground/LTL services in 3 or more boxes. The exact number of boxes varies depending on the kit that was ordered, you are welcome to reach out to our Customer Service to receive exact details on what your order will include. No special equipment is needed to receive the greenhouse. We pack it in the way, where boxes and their contents are well protected during transportation, and at the same time so it is easy for two people to offload each of the boxes/pieces (driver will be glad to assist).
Even though we put a lot of effort into making every shipment go perfectly, it is customer’s responsibility to report any damage or missing boxes/pieces during order delivery. In such event, customer needs to note the issue on the delivery receipt and immediately email our customer service team.
Q. When will my greenhouse arrive at my front door?
When you submit your purchase we immediately send the request to our warehouse in Washington State from where it will be shipped. If you place your order on a Friday, Saturday or Sunday your order will be submitted on the following Monday. The warehouse can take between 3-7 business days to prepare your order (please allow few extra days between Fall and Spring seasons, due to high volume of orders). When your purchase leaves the warehouse, please allow up to 10-14 business days to receive your order. In most cases it takes no more than 5-7 business days on average for your order to arrive to your local terminal, then our carriers will give you a call to set up an appointment for drop-off at your door.

Q. Do you sell larger greenhouses than on your website?
Yes, you may request additional information on the custom larger (longer) models from our customer service representatives.
Q. How strong is a ClimaPod greenhouse?
Europe’s standards are higher than those in the US, and the TUV Europe testing lab which is equivalent to UL has tested the product and certified it as being strong and safe. The incredible strength of the greenhouse comes from its excellent engineering and the high quality of plastics and aluminum used.
Q. How much wind can ClimaPod greenhouse withstand?
Much depends on the location and what sort of wind velocity your region can get. We do know from customers that the units have withstood wind gusts of up to 80 mph winds without damage. Even in very bad windstorms, basing on reports we received in nearly 10 years of selling ClimaPods, the worst that can happen to your greenhouse is that some of the polycarbonate panels are blown out which are very easy to replace. Note that for cold, high-snow and high-wind regions we recommend using our double-wall polycarbonate kits and climapod storm kit, as well as making sure all the vents and doors are shut when wind/snow is expected.
Q. What is their snow load capacity?
The load capacity is roughly 50 lbs per square feet. Never the less, we recommend that you brush the snow off the roof whenever it gets over a foot.
Q. Where should I locate my greenhouse?
The selection of a site involves taking into consideration three importantly factors:
- the most desirable location should be partially shaded by deciduous tree(s) or lacking shade draped with an external shade cloth over the greenhouse;
- the site should also be sheltered from the wind by a tree(s) or some other barriers;
- the site should be level and allow for good drainage.
Q. How do I secure the greenhouse?
The greenhouse should ideally be attached to some sort of foundation, in order to keep it secure, and it should be preferably something heavy/solid.
All ClimaPod Greenhouses come with 5″ aluminum base which can be connected to most kinds of foundations.
Q. What kind of greenhouses does ClimaPod offer?
ClimaPod Greenhouses are all glazed with premium quality Polycarbonate panels and framed by heavy duty Aluminum profiles.
Q. What is polycarbonate?
Polycarbonate are a particular group of thermoplastic polymers. Their superior features compare to other polymers (temperature resistance, impact resistance and optical properties) position them between commodity plastics and engineering plastics.
Q. What makes a polycarbonate greenhouse better than glass?
Polycarbonate panels are virtually unbreakable. It is a big plus concerning their longevity as also their safety, especially important when younger children or the elderly are involved.
The light weight of the panels – less than 2-3 lbs – is another advantage that affect the convenient of assembly or even re-location option (assembled 9’x12′ greenhouse is less than 250 lbs).
In addition the Polycarbonate panels protect everything inside the greenhouse from the harmful UV rays, either it is shelving, pots, tools or your skin.
Q. What are Clear Polycarbonate panels?
Clear Polycarbonate panels are unique for ClimaPod Clear greenhouses. They combine the visual appearance and functional effects of glass with the advantages of polycarbonate greenhouse.
These are solid panels that have about 90% light transmission which bring flowers and plants inside the greenhouse to be part of your garden landscape and you can see everything within, like glass. Your plants will enjoy maximum light exposure.
On the other hand, Clear polycarbonate panels are fully safe since they are virtually unbreakable, and their light weight makes the assembly process easier and more convenient.
Q. What sizes are available for the ClimaPod greenhouses?
Hobby series come approximately with 9’ width and 12’ depth.
Spirit series come approximately with 7′ width and 12′, 14′, 21′, 28′, 35′, or 42′ depth
Passion & Virtue series come approximately with 9’ width and 14’, 21′, 28′, 35′, or 42′ depth.
Clear models come in 6’x8’, 8’x10’, 8’x12’.
Note that you can always requested a quote for a longer ClimaPod or custom connect few of the greenhouse kits in order to increase the length.

Q. Is it possible to enlarge your greenhouse?
Yes, ClimaPod Greenhouses can be assembled together. As long as you secure them properly, you can put together as many greenhouses as you want.
Q. What accessories are available for the greenhouse?
All greenhouses include vents and base
For ClimaPod Virtue, Passion, Spirit and Hobby additional accessories are available in separated kits: Shelving, Solar Fans, Louvers, and Automatic Vents Openers.
For more details check the products pages at this website.
Q. What are the main advantages of the Polycarbonate vs Glass?
In the last few years the glass has to a great extent been substituted by a new higher grade material – twin wall polycarbonate.
ClimaPod’s twin-wall polycarbonate offers high impact resistance, excellent heat retention and 80-90% light transmission. ClimaPod greenhouse polycarbonate sheets are designed and engineered specifically for greenhouse use.
All of our panels have UV protection on the outer side of the panels that protects your plants from getting burnt by ultraviolet rays and prevents the polycarbonate from yellowing after many years of use. The multi-layer structure reduces heating costs in winter while minimizing excessive heat in summer. Polycarbonate has an insulating effect, so the temperature in the greenhouse will be more even and create a better growing habitat.
Q. How long will a Polycarbonate greenhouse will last?
ClimaPod is using Polycarbonate which is UV protected therefore there is no yellowness, turbidity or disintegration for at least 10 years.
Q. Can the frame rust?
No. All of our kits are made of aluminum, which is rust resistant. The steel hardware parts are galvanized.
Q. How to choose a greenhouse site?
If possible, locate the greenhouse where it will receive at least 6 hours of direct sunlight during the winter months. Try to avoid a site that is completely shaded by buildings or trees. A good site would also be sheltered from high winds. Easy access and close water and electricity are also important. The recommended greenhouse’ position is with its ridge running east and west so its length will face the sun during most hours.
Q. What is the return or cancellation policy?
After the order is placed, it can be cancelled or returned within 14 calendar days after purchase day with 20% restocking fee.
– The shipping & handling fees are nonrefundable.
– The customer is responsible for arranging the return of product, or the return shipping cost will be also deducted from the remaining total.
– Please note that the product will only be accepted in unopened original boxes.
– Products purchased with discounts or promotions cannot be returned.
Please contact our representatives to learn more.
Q. What kind of surface does the greenhouse need?
The greenhouse must be positioned on a flat level surface. It can be either a concrete, gravel, strong wood platform, or a flat ground that was leveled carefully.
Q. How should I anchor a ClimaPod greenhouse?
The greenhouse should be anchored to a firm surface.
Q. How do I clean the greenhouse?
Use a mild detergent solution and rinse with cold clean water. DO NOT use acetone, abrasive cleaners, or other special detergents for cleaning as they can remove the UV resistant layer on the polycarbonate.
Q. How do I ask for replacement/missing parts?
We put a lot of effort and have boxes inspected during production to avoid any of the parts to be included.
If you believe that you have some part missing please contact our customer service through this website contact form or by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The solar thermostatic ventilator is suitable for automatic ventilation, air exhaust and cooling within small space. It will convert solar energy into electrical energy to meet the demand of small space’s ventilation, air exhaust and cooling through setting up a working temperature by thermostat switch. Its key value is that it can be used for 5-10 years, or even longer by your one-time investment and little maintenance, you will never need to pay for the electric bill and worry about opening or switching off the ventilator.
The solar thermostatic ventilator need to be assembled at the place where have enough sun. it is suitable for small space around 5-7 m? and several sets can be used together to have a better ventilation and air exhaust. Besides being used in greenhouse, it can also be used in machine room, mobile toilet, poor ventilated and hot small room, as long as there is direct sunlight.
High reliability, stable performance, long life, easy assembly, automatic and easy operation are the main features of the solar thermostatic ventilator.
- Choose the place to install the Solar thermostatic ventilator where is direct sunlight, try to keep the solar photovoltaic cell panel perpendicular to sunlight to receive the best light. There can’t be any shading on the solar photovoltaic cell panel surface, and it can’t be installed at low and concave place to avoid the rain water running into the ventilator through the air-bleed hole.
- Measure and cut out section with size of 267*267mm for Solar Themostatic ventilator. It is recommended using a Utility Knife to cut through the polycarbonate. Once the piece is cut insert one end of the Ventilator into the open space, support the other side of the polycarbonate with your hand, and push the other side of the ventilator through for a secure fit.
- Drill holes at the end of rods based on span size.
- Once ventilator is securely in place, add the support beam making sure bolt holes align with the ventilator holes. If not drill addition holes into support beam. (If necessary, do this for both the top and bottom support beams.) Finally bolt both ends of the support beams into the aluminum profile of the greenhouse.
- When the sun blaze down on the solar photovoltaic cell panel, if you set the temperature lower than the surrounding, then the ventilator will work automatically; if you set the temperature higher than the surrounding, then the ventilator will stop working automatically. You can set the temperature to ventilate according to your own situation. If there is no sunlight on the solar photovoltaic cell panel, the ventilator will also stop working, like when evening or the surface is covered by light-proof objects, etc.
- Clean the surface of the solar photovoltaic cell panel regularly to get better ventilation, air exhaust effect.
- Add lubricating oil at pivot of the ventilator regularly.
- Wash anti-dust net regularly. If you don’t need ventilation at all, you can cover the anti-dust net with a windproof product to stop the ventilation with outside, like plastic panel, etc.
- Don’t impact or compress with heavy or sharp objects
- Don’t throw objects into the ventilator, like thread and dust, etc.
- Keep it far away from high temperature and fire.
- Don’t throw.
- Keep it far away from Corrosive, inflammable and explosive goods.
