Use a Heating Plate Temperature Controller which allows control of Premier's Heating Plates output between 20% - 100% of full output.
Heating plate advantages over a heat lamp:
- Uses much less electricity. Only 22 watts (66 for the larger plate) vs 175 or 250 watts for a heat lamp.
- Less risk of fire because of the much lower surface temperature (125°).
- A hen keeps chicks warm beneath a heat source. So does a heat plate.
The rugged plate cover (optional and sold above) prevents older chicks from perching on top and fouling the unit with droppings. However, the plate can be hand-washed (do not submerge in water) to remove dust and debris.
How to Use
When the heating plate is plugged directly into the outlet, the red light comes on and stays on.
When it is plugged into the Heating Plate Temperature Controller, it will blink based on the min/max adjustment. Slow blink toward minimum and quicker toward max. If you turn it all the way up, it will come on full time.

We are pleased with the heating plate brooder. The chicks love it. I have heard about heat lamps. A friend of ours burned their barn to the ground. We live off the grid and the 60 watts is much better for us.

A quality heater. So much nicer than the heat lamp, and clearly safer. Thanks Premier 1.

I love this little brooder heater!! I have another one and this has a much better design!! I love that it is so easy to adjust height so quick and easy plus I can adjust it higher in front and lower in the back so the smaller chicks needing more heat can stay on the side it is lower and any larger or a little older can stay at the other end. I plan to buy a few more.

When I went to buy this, I had serious doubts about a $30 piece of plastic. I thought it was an attempt to take advantage of customers by creating a proprietary piece of plastic. When I pulled it out of the box, I once I was wrong. It is very heavy and thick plastic, but not rigid. I doubt it will ever break and my 50 broiler chicks haven't managed to roost on it yet. Our previous brooder had to be scraped off or otherwise protected from the mass of poo. I'm so glad I spent the extra on this.
