Energy efficient heating in poultry sheds


The main heating technologies used in poultry sheds are radiant and air heaters. Considerations to be made in determining the most effective and efficient technology for poultry sheds are discussed. Assuming similar combustion efficiencies within heaters, radiant and infra-red technologies will have inherently lower energy costs and may be 15 to 30 per cent more efficient than brooder heaters. Alternative heating technologies, while less common than radiant and air heaters, may also be worth considering.
