Energy conservation

Circulation fans have proven to be very effective in reducing fuel usage, promoting drier litter, and minimizing hot and cold spots in broiler houses during cold weather. The key to obtaining maximum benefit from circulation fans is making sure that you install a circulation fan system. That is, you should install circulation fans in such a way so they work together as a unit to thoroughly, yet gently, mix the air in the house not only from ceiling to floor but from end to end, on a continuous basis, without producing excessive air movement at floor level.
