Carbon Fiber Heaters
High-output heater for lambing pens, chicken coops or horse stables. Not recommended for use in chick brooders.
Due to their high heat output, Carbon Fiber Heaters should be hung higher than heat lamps. This allows heat to disperse over a large area and prevents hot spots. Available in 600 or 1200 watt configurations. (Bulbs and lamps are not interchangeable.)
Built-in “kill switch” turns the unit off if an unsafe angle occurs. So if it falls or is smashed, the heater is immediately disabled. Protects your buildings, livestock, poultry and pets.
Carbon fiber bulbs have a very long life and are efficient—98% of watts become heat.
- Heater with 600w bulb (12" dia shade) for a 10 x 10 ft space.
- Heater with 1200w bulb (16" dia shade) for a 20 x 20 ft space.
- Unique internal tilt switch turns the unit off if an unsafe angle (greater than 30°) is reached.
- High-output carbon fiber bulbs produce 4-6 times more heat than conventional bulbs.
- Cooling fins reduce heat build-up around electronic controls.
- Included reflecting cone directs heat downward toward livestock.
- Wire grill prevents animals or birds from contacting bulbs.
- Simple on/off switch.
- Secure hanging attachment.
- 7.5 ft of cord.
- 600W heater use 600W bulb
- 1200W heater use 1200W bulb
When installing new bulbs, be sure to handle the bulb with a cloth or covering. This prevents oil transfer from your hands to the bulb, which reduces its usable life.
Due to the high heat output of these units, we recommend placing them higher (further away from the ground or animals) than conventional heat lamps. This will allow the heat to disperse over a larger area and prevents “hot-spots” from forming. Do not allow birds/animals direct access to any heater or heat lamp.
Do not enclose in barrels or other similar enclosed locations. They heat must be able to move away from the heating unit.
Note: Even though we find our heaters safer than common metal lamps, we still take every precaution to reduce fire risk. Secure the lamp several feet above the ground where it cannot be jostled by livestock.
Warning: Risk of electrical shock—Connect only to a branch circuit protected by a ground-fault circuit-interrupter (GFCI). Contact a qualified electrician if you cannot verify that the circuit is protected by a GFCI.

Love these heaters! I have two of the 1200W for my donkeys walk in barn. They are hanging about 4ft apart. The donkeys & mini horse are able to stand under them to warm up, and it keeps the rest of their area many degrees warmer. I keep them on 24/7 during the bitter cold weather, and the bulbs are still going strong. They appear much safer than all the other heaters I have seen.

It worked great in January... then the filament burned out in February. Now I’m back to using my old heat lamps. The filaments should last longer than a month given their high price.

Are these comparatively expensive? Kinda. Will your breath catch in your throat when you see that first month of full-time-use on your electric bill? Most likely. Are they, none the less, worth every penny? Absolutely.
There is this peace in my heart that I cannot adequately convey: every winter night, when I’ve just shut off the aisle lighting, and the glow of wavelengths my animals probably cannot even see is illuminating each of their stalls/rooms with a light I know will keep them warm in the dark, I feel like I’ve properly shown them they’re loved. I’m aware of how ridiculous that is (thank goodness this is the Internet and no one can tell me in person that they read this and know I’m a loony), but our family is small and things are tougher than usual for us lately. It’s also been extra cold these past two months. Our animals are important to us, and I am grateful for the things that can be used to make taking good care of them easier.

This light is amazing! It’s currently -1°F outside and the barn is a toasty 35°F. And it’s not insulated or airtight by any means. My chickens and calves are comfortable and not getting frostbite. The instructional video on Premier 1’s website is very helpful for setup of the heater.

Does not heat up the 10x10 stall it is hanging in. We tried moving down lower, but that didn't really help.
