Hydor’s range of radiant heaters have been specifically designed to provide an efficient and cost saving heating method for poultry farms.
Whilst there is a particular emphasis upon commercial rearing of broilers, pullets and other birds, ignition brooders are equally suited for smaller.
Radiant Heat vs Forced Air
Hydor’s Poultry Brooders use radiant heaters which are designed to warm the bird directly. The benefits of radiant heat, as shown in the diagram below, is that radiant heaters are designed to direct the heat where it is needed most directly at the birds.
Radiant heat helps keep the litter area dry and warms the birds directly- saving fuel. Whole house heaters force the heated air to the upper areas of the house first, then to the floor area.
