Radiant heating systems are by far the most common method of providing supplement heat to birds in poultry houses today. What sets radiant heating systems apart from traditional hot air heating systems is the fact that roughly 50% of the heat energy produced by a radiant heater is delivered directly to the floor in the form of radiant heat.

Knowing how much to ventilate during cold weather is crucial to a poultry producer's bottom line. Ventilating too little can lead to poor air/litter quality, resulting in bird health and performance issues. Ventilating too much can lead to drafty, dusty conditions and high heating costs. To best determine minimum ventilation fan runtime, farm managers should ideally monitor the three most important air quality variables: carbon dioxide, ammonia and relative humidity.
