To create a proper climate in the stable, both natural and mechanical ventilation are important. With regard to mechanical ventilation, it is important to make a good choice based on the characteristics of the stable and the current climate. The assortment at MS Schippers includes high-quality fans of excellent technical construction with superior output. The fans are quiet, which is good for the well-being of the animals. Furthermore, they are controlled as automatically as possible, which makes for efficient use and low energy costs.
The horizontal stable fan is the most used fan for the stable, and guarantees superior airflow. Ceiling fans move the upper air toward the floor. This cools off the animals as well, but does not create a draught across the udders of the cows. The broad width of the fan can generate a large amount of air displacement without requiring multiple devices.
The horizontal stable fan is not just valuable in the summer, but in the winter it provides better distribution of warmth by letting it operate in reverse. The air will collect near the ceiling. By doing this, the fan will pull the warm air down from above toward the floor. Now you can set the heating temperature a bit lower and save substantially on your energy bill.
Vertical ventilation is best suited for low stables and takes up less space than horizontal ventilation. They can be installed on the ceilings or the walls. The number of fans necessary is determined by the amount of surface area to be ventilated.
