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.

Does what you expect. I purchased two one worked amazing and the other one’s red light burned out within 24 hours of use an I had to constantly keep lifting the plate to check an make sure it was warm... it was frustrating.

I love my heating plates for my chicks! I love the idea of have something where the heat source is close to the chicks and acts just like momma hen. I haven't lost a single chick with these as the can freely leave the heat any time and I find weaning them off heat easier!

Works as advertised. Much safer than a traditional heat lamp. The chicks were attracted to it almost immediately.

Really happy I found this plate. I'm using it in a 55" x 55" brooder with 24 chicks. Even though it's bigger than what they need I wanted them to have lots of room. They definitely enjoy it. Takes the worry out of worrying about the temperature and I know they like to hide under it when they want quiet time. The price at Premier 1 is excellent and so is the customer service. Highly recommend this!
