All Heat lamps project heat down. This outdated technology wastes a huge amount of energy as only a fraction of the heat reaches the target zone and transfers to the piglets. The Hog Hearth® heat mat design incorporates thermal insulation positioned below the energy efficient carbon heating element. This ensures all infra-red heat produced by the Hog Hearth® mat is projected upward and transferred to the target heat zone, dissipating above the piglets.
Hog Hearth® heat mats will not only reduce the watts required to heat a crate but will run more efficiently. The Hog Hearth® system is designed to cycle on and off using a fraction of the energy required to heat a crate vs a single or double heat lamp setup.
