Comparison of room- and floor heating in piglet houses


Comparison of room- and floor heating in piglet houses



Agrartechnische Forschung 7(1/3): E1-E5



After two years of investigations, different ventilation- and heating systems for piglet houses can now be evaluated comprehensively. In addition to the economic viability of the variants, the lying behaviour, indoor air quality, and the emission of noxious gases have been taken into account. As compared with standard fans, low-energy 'EC fans' allow electricity consumption to be reduced by an average of more than 50%.
