How To Operate The Soundless Humidifiers Effectively !!!!
There are a few interesting benefits when you use those soundless humidifiers in your new and old BH with lots of nests.
The biggest benefits to me are:
1) If you use the correct number, place them evenly and run the machine at the proper timing for the day all your new nests will turn white.
2) Those fine mists are easily evaporated once they come into contact with the heat in your BH. This evaporation activities happen immediately upon ejecting from those pipe nozzle you placed on the humidifier's top cover. The exchange from mist into gas absorb lantern heat. This absorption, once continued, will bring the BH room temperature lower.
3) The next benefit is the BH room humidity. Humidity are mainly caused by the amount of water in the air. A good BH needs to have a range of 85% - 95%. Those mist from the humidifiers are water and obviously will help to increase your BH humidity. Make sure to minimise the air movement in your BH.
4)One of the biggest advantage by using this new generation humidifiers are the sound. If you compare with those chicken coop humidifiers they are very quite. The reason being the "soundless humidifiers' have not big fan to blow the mist into the air. The sound are well below a disturbing level to cause any effect to those precious birds staying in your house.
5) The mist from this equipment have very little tendencies to touch the nesting planks on the ceiling. Upon coming out of the pipe nozzle (130* elbow) they will falls to the BH floors. This is due to its density, heavier then air. This phenomena prevent nesting planks situated above your humidifiers from being wet. This action will minimised the fungus growth. This is very different if you use those chicken coop humidifiers.
But what will be the most important thing to ensure that these humidifier last for as long as you can?
The answer is number of hours you operate the humidifiers. Those parts in the humidifiers have their shelf life and once their shelf life are up they will no longer function.
The supplier indicated that the best number of hours to operate the humidifier is about 8-9 hours a day. If you comply to this number of hours per day the unit can last for a minimum of 2 years.
So how are we going to distribute the 9 x 60 minutes = 540 minutes during a day?
Best recommendation from the successful user is as follows:
Morning from 7.00am until 10.00am, run the humidifiers for 15 minutes and stop for 30 minutes. This will take away 60 minutes of the 540 = 480
From 10.00 am till 6.00pm, run the humidifier with the interval of 20 minutes and off for 20 minutes. This will reduce the balance of operating time to 480 - 240 = 240 minutes.
Stop the machine from 6.00pm till 8:30pm to minimise any possible disturbances to those birds.
Start back from 8:30 pm until 10.00pm by alternating with 20 minutes on and 20 minutes off. Balance of time will be 240 -40 = 200 minutes.
From 10.00 pm till 7.00 am you play alternate timing of 15 minutes on and 20 minutes off. This will totally absorbed the balance to time that you have.
By following this recommended timing the floor will be always protected with a layer of those white mists.
The mist on the floor can effectively prevent those dusts from airborne in the even that those birds make any movement close to the floor.
The lesser the dust in the air the whiter will be your nests !!!!
