Do you know what is the superiority of this SWEETER HEATER Safe Heater?
MADE IN THE USA The Overhead Mount Sweeter Heater is safe, energy efficient, indestructible, and reliable. This is an infrared radiant heater, intended to heat the animal underneath. Infrared heat is absorbed by the animal underneath. Unless measuring heat with a radiant heat gun, a thermometer will only measure the heat that is released from the animal. It's not a space heater and will not feel hot like one. Designed to be hung or suspended from a ceiling or bracket from above, approximately 6-20 inches over the animals to be warmed. There are no hot spots, develops a uniform heat pattern, and has a 3-year warranty. The surface temperature of the lens will range from a safe 160-180 degrees F and will not burn your animals. It is designed to warm the animal, not the environment and is fully adjustable to maintain the ideal comfort level for your animals. For additional safety measures, the Sweeter Heater has an internal snap action thermal control to insure heaters turns off automatically when heat is not allowed to escape. The 11×40 model has up to 440 square inches of soft uniform infrared heat and if using for brooding chicks, we suggest 50-75 chicks will fit comfortably also dependent upon environmental factors . Sweeter Heaters are ideal for use in chick brooders, chicken coops, whelping areas, goats, kennel runs, farrowing units, dog and cat houses/crates, rabbits, bees, and bird and reptile cages. The SWEETER HEATER develops a uniform heat pattern, it uses less power to operate, it is unbreakable, it is sealed so it can be washed. Average weekly energy cost to run 24×7 is 3.02.

I hang this just above the roosts in my coop from the roof rafters, its not meant to completely heat the coop rather just give them some radiant heat so that their combs don't get frost bite. The most important thing to keep in mind as far as chicken coops go is that you don't want to have any drafts, the chickens fluff themselves up at night when perched so they can keep themselves warm. I have a remote temp. probe in the coop that I monitor from in my house during winter months. With this heater it usually creates a 10-12 degree difference in temperature compared to outside. My coop is 10X8 by 5 feet tall, so even on the coldest nights when its 10 degrees outside my coop is around 22 degrees inside which takes the edge off, if the outside temp is in the twenties then my coop is above freezing inside. The biggest advantage with these Sweeter Heaters is that if it was to fall off the chain and into the coop floor it isn't hot enough to start a fire. I also use another smaller Sweeter Heater mounted to the wall where their water is. One other thing to keep in mind is that some people actually use lamps or other heat sources in their coops but there are two drawbacks, one is the obvious fire hazard and second if its to warm in your coop the chickens will adapt to the warmer temp if you lose power for any reason your chickens may not be able to deal with the sudden temp drop and could actually kill them. For best results plug them into a thermal cube so that the heaters will kick on if the temp drops under 34 degrees.
