Air inlets

Making sure that your side wall inlets are properly adjusted during cold weather is very important, both in terms of maximizing broiler performance as well as minimizing energy usage. This is because it is the side wall inlets that primarily determine air temperature as well air quality uniformity throughout a house, not exhaust fan placement. Or in other words, it is how close a bird is to a fresh air source that determines the quality of the environment it is living in, not how close it is to where stale air exits a house.
