HEAT MATS vs HEAT LAMPS
MATS VS LAMPS
Inefficient heat lamps waste a huge amount of energy as only a fraction of the heat reaches the target zone and transfers to the piglets. Some farrowing crates require 2 heat lamps to evenly dissipate heat to the target zone below. The heat dissipating from the lamps raises ambient room temperatures increasing stress on the sows’. The combination of energy efficient carbon heating elements and high-density insulation ensures all infra-red heat produced by the Hog Hearth heat mats is projected upward and transferred to the target heat zone above.
Hog Hearth heat mats will not only reduce the watts required to heat a crate but will run more efficiently, eliminate the risk of fires and lower maintenance.
When paired with a variable heat mat controller, the Hog Hearth system will use a fraction of the energy required to heat a farrowing crate vs a single or double heat lamp setup.

All proposed savings are based on heat lamps running at full capacity. Hog Hearth heat mats being controlled by variable temperature controller. Hog Hearth Single Mats are designed to service a single crate with an un-elevated divider. Hog Hearth Double Mats are designed to service 2 crates with an elevated divider (watts / 2). Annual hours calculated at 21 day cycles with 1 day downtime to turn the rooms (8,550 annual hours).
All proposed heat lamp power consumption calculations are based on figures taken from lamps operating at full draw capacity (100%). All proposed Hog Hearth® system energy savings and power consumption calculations are based on figures taken from Hog Hearth® heat mats operating in an ambient climate of 68°F - 72°F. All values and figures listed for Hog Hearth® heat mats are taken directly from verified studies of Hog Hearth® heat mats being controlled by a HMC (Heat Mat Controller) / MSU (Master Sensor Unit) setup. Actual energy savings may fluctuate +/- 10% from figures listed above. IHT provides no representation, warranty or guarantee and takes no responsibility for, actual monetary or energy savings resulting from use of Hog Hearth® Heating systems.
