Heating poultry houses
Keeping poultry warm is important for the welfare of the animals. Whether it concerns laying poultry, breeding poultry or broilers, the right temperature plays a major role. Gasolec B.V. offers a wide range of infrared radiant heaters for poultry houses.
The advantage of these infrared heaters is that the radiant heat source heats the house faster and more efficiently than combustion heaters. In addition, good insulation is less important, because the heat is primarily aimed at the ground and the poultry. Moreover, the heat remains in the barn.
A good heating system produces the right amount of heat that is required at that moment. Broilers have a body weight of about 40 grams on day 1, where they have no effective body insulation and hardly produce any heat themselves. After 5 tot 6 weeks the animals often have a body weight of 2.5 kg. In addition, the chicks have an insulating plumage, so that their own heat production is hardly lost. This change in insulation makes it essential that heat production can be controlled in the poultry houses. When the chicks are 1 day old, there is a great need for extra heating. The amount of necessary heat decreases as the animals grow. At a certain point the chicken produces more heat than what they need, especially as they get more body insulation, and at this point the need for heating changes in a need for cooling.
What kind of infrared heaters are there for poultry animals?
The infrared radiant gas heaters from Gasolec B.V. can be divided into three different model categories:

Which type of heater is suitable for your poultry house depends on your wishes, the available gas type, the possible gas pressure regulation and, last but not least, a good connection to the other parts of the climate system in the poultry house.
