With above the payback time is one year. From the energy saving alone the payback time is 6 years. Even if you did not see any of the other improvements, the payback time is faster than building a complete new pig house.

With intelligent heat lamps in the section the heat consumption is so small that you might consider other solutions than the conventional.

Economy.

 

You save 215 kWh per year or 10.750 for one room with 50 pens. The consumption of acid is free, when the price of one kg. N is € 0.8 and the price of one kg. sulphur acid is € 0.27.

The maintenance of the air cleaner is higher, on the other side the intelligent heat lamp will keep the piglets inside the creep area, som the number of crushed piglets is lower. Also the heat at hot days will be off resulting in less heat stress of the sows giving a stronger heat and more piglets at the next litter. In total you will have extra money besides the big saving in energy.
