Combat's Agricultural Heating Solutions - Design & Installation

At Combat, we design and manufacture agricultural heating solutions that aim to aid farming processes and are fit for the unique conditions of the industry. From Radiant Heaters to Warm Air Heating, we work to produce agricultural heating solutions that suit you. 

Read our agricultural heating case study below to learn how we were able to account for the temperature requirements in brooding chicks.

Temperature Requirements in Farming

The purpose of brooding chicks is to provide growing birds with a comfortable and healthy environment, efficiently and economically.

Important factors to monitor: 

  • Temperature

  • Ventilation rates

  • Humidity

  • Litter conditions

  • Dust

  • Ammonia or CO2 Levels 

Failure to properly manage these factors during the brooding period will likely mean lower economic returns. Newly hatched chicks have little or no ability to regulate their body temperature and depend on the grower to provide an ideal growing environment through efficient heating solutions.

Agricultural Radiant Heating

Over the years, the method of adding heat to the chicken barn has taken many forms. In the 1960s, the pancake brooder was created and used in a significant number of poultry houses. During that time the poultry market began to look into the advantages of Gas-Fired Low-Intensity Radiant Heaters to offer a more efficient and modern form of heating.

Gas-fired radiant heat has proved itself to be an incredibly energy efficient heating solution for transferring heat to the ground level in poultry houses, where the birds are located. This new energy efficient heating solution is now used across the country as not only does it provide energy efficient heating, but targets ground level - meaning that the heat can be distributed directly to the chickens at the correct level.

If you are looking for a specialised agricultural heating solution, we’d love to offer our range of products and services to you.
