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.
- Warming lambs and goat kids in orphan pens
- Added warmth in barns or stables
- 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.
- Simple on/off switch.
- Secure hanging attachment.
- 7.5 ft of cord.
- 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.
Do not enclose in barrels or other similar enclosed locations. They heat must be able to move away from the heating unit.
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.
Replacement Bulbs (sold separately) MUST be matched to the correct heater. Use 600W heater with 600W bulb. Use 1200W heater with 1200W bulb.
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.

We have brutal swings in temperature and even though our barns are insulated, heating a big open space can be a fool's errand. These high-efficiency lamps are a lifesaver for people and animals. They are easy to move around and easy to adjust. I bought both sizes, and decided bigger is better but I still use both. We placed one above the workbench in the shop and love that it can keep several people comfortable instead of roasting the one closest to it. That gave us confidence to use it in the lambing barn, where it quickly replaced the long Farmtek heaters that cost four times as much. The smaller one went into the chicken coop, which is very insulated and well ventilated. Previously, the vent fan pulled the heat out of the coop. This heater keeps all 17 of the ladies happy from one end of the roost to the other, warms up the metal nesting box unit, and provides just enough supplemental light that they keep laying and the eggs don't freeze. What's not to love? Also, we just burned out our first element and I was delighted to see that for $25 I can have a replacement.

I absolutely love this lamp/heater. It warms the air extremely well. Safety features and cost are well worth it!

So far so good. No problems at all. I bought 2- 1200v lamps for horse/ chicken barns. I put them on ThermoCubes.

The light was shipped quickly and it went together easily with the aid of the video posted on the Premier 1 website. The chickens have the chill cut down in their coop. Good purchase since it works as advertised.

I am very impressed. I bought 2 (1200 watt heaters) and they work great. I have one in the indoor shed for my mini pig and one in the chicken coop.
Neither are well insulated and both areas are warm when I go into feed in the morning. My pig's water bucket doesn't freeze anymore either. Big bonus!
