Rising Gas Prices: Lower Costs with Poultry House Heat Exchangers

With skyrocketing energy prices and increased pressure from suppliers to reduce emissions, poultry farmers are looking for new ways to save energy and cut costs.

To optimize energy, poultry company Vencomatic UK says heat exchangers can be added to a shed, saving money while promoting low-carbon farming.

Heat exchangers can help producers save money by using the already warm air from inside the barn to warm the incoming fresh air from outside.

This is done without mixing stale air with fresh air, ensuring a constant flow of clean conditioned air while using far less energy than traditional practices.

Installing a heat exchanger on a shed allows farmers to fully control the climate of the house.

Vencomatic UK supply heat exchangers with high thermal efficiency of up to 80% using their Louvre air distribution system.

This projects air over the roof, allowing even temperatures, a stable climate and non-intrusive ventilation for birds.

Vencomatic Group UK and its sister company Agro Supply are leading suppliers of high quality, cost effective heat exchangers for the UK market.

Benefits of Installing a Heat Exchanger

At Vencomatic UK, providing a high level of poultry welfare is at the heart of their beliefs.

Adding the Eco Unit to a chicken coop has benefits not only financially, but also for the birds.

The Eco Unit is a heat exchanger that uses a small amount of electricity to recover heat from the shelter.

This improves the quality of the litter, which reduces diseases and facilitates the maintenance operations of the system, the litter being much more friable.

The Eco Unit also makes the air “dry”, which reduces the risk of respiratory infection.

With temperature control, birds use less energy to regulate their body heat, reducing feed costs.

Environmental benefits of installing a heat exchanger

As mentioned before, heat exchangers allow heat recovery with a thermal efficiency of up to 80%.

By installing a heat exchanger, farmers not only save money and improve bird welfare, but they also reduce carbon emissions.

With customers clamoring for low carbon products and retailers like Sainsbury’s committing to net zero by 2040, now is the perfect time to invest in the future of poultry farming.

Vencomatic Group UK offers two product series, the Eco unit and the Clima unit, which can be adapted to any requirement.

Both offer 80% heat recovery, with the exception of the Eco unit which offers the option of additional heating to further improve shed conditions.
