"RS" Models have built-in % power regulators for manual control. Heater output may be manually set as follows: OFF, 23-70%, or ON FULL. Changes in surrounding air temperature do not affect output of heater.
For the RS model, select "yes" to Built in Heat Regulator option above.
Basic Infrared heaters without any controls built-in. These heaters will always be on with power is applied. They can be controlled with an ON/OFF switch, or with a HTP-1 Portable Heater Thermostat.
These are the most common heaters used for horse stalls or wash racks. The standard installation is to install a switched outlet on the ceiling with either an on/off switch on the wall (for stalls) or a Timer Switch that will automatically turn off the heater after a preset time (for wash stalls, tack rooms, etc.).
Benefits and Features
- Keep your horses warm and comfortable, great for new born foals!
- Heat the horses, not the air in the whole barn!
- Dry horses faster in wash stalls - splashing will not damage heating element
- Warm show horses during the quick shedding of winter coats using an independent light source
- Provide a large radiant heat pattern without visible light
- Save wear and tear on costly blankets
- Durable metal sheath heating element lasts many years - much better than glass heat lamps!
- Easy to install
- Made in the USA!
such as 120 volt HS-1215 or 240 volt HS-2420 do not have a switch or built-in control. When plugged into a receptacle the heater will come on full and stay on full until unplugged or turned off. The heater can be turned on/off by a cicuit breaker, a switch controlling the receptacle, or by a separate thermostat such as 120 volt HTP-1 or 240 volt HTH-1 (optional). HS models can be regulated manually by wall mounted electro-mechanical power regulators (duty cycler) such as 120 volt PR-1218RS or 240 volt PR-2436RS, or by electronic dimmer controls such as 120 volt LC-1220 or 240 volt LC-2440. They can also be regulated automatically by a temperature control such as the 120 volt LCEDT-1242 or 240 volt LCEDT-2484.
Infrared Heater Specs
- General: Kalglo heaters are most efficient when facing down (not angled to one side) in draft-free environments. Keep exterior doors closed if possible. When hanging the heater, clinch all hooks closed. Leave some excess chain to adjust the height of the heater if necessary. The optimum distance between heater and subject is usually about 3 ft. For full size horses, hang the heater approximately 8-9 ft. above the floor or 4-5 ft. for miniature horses. The heater should be approximately 3-4 ft. above the horse's back. Do not mount heater directly against the ceiling - allow a 6 in. air gap if possible.
- Wash Stall: The ideal position for the heater should be lengthwise with the horse, with one end of the heater located above the horse's withers. If two heaters are used, hang them lengthwise with the horse and space them approximately 3 ft. apart so the horse stands in-between, with one heater on either side.
- Horse/Foaling Stall: Usually it is best to hang the heater about 4 ft. from one side of the stall, not directly in the center, to allow some room for the horse to move away from the radiant heat pattern. In a foaling stall where there is a divider, temporarily lower the heater down to about 6 ft. above the floor in the foal's area for greater warmth. Foals will seek out the warm area.
- Tack Room: Hang the heater about 7 ft. above the floor and position the heater so it radiates heat on the tack to help control mold and mildew. If the tack room is totally enclosed, the heater will also increase the air temperature inside the room, so use of an optional thermostat is advisable.
