For growers with negative pressure houses, inlet machines can make it relatively easy to provide ideal house conditions for their birds. Throughout the entire day, side-wall inlets are continuously adjusted by the machine as exhaust fans turn on and off so that the inlets are open just the right amount to maximize both fan efficiency and air mixing. The grower doesn't have to worry that if outside conditions suddenly change when he isn't there that his inlets are open too much or closed too tightly.
