The provision of a microclimate for poultry houses with the help of radiant heating systems has become widespread. Infrared heating systems, unlike other systems for providing the microclimate of poultry houses, provide local heating. When placed correctly, infrared heaters heat only the area where the poultry is located. When using infrared heaters, it is possible to achieve the necessary conditions in the location of the poultry, without increasing the temperature of the indoor air, and if possible, reducing it. Studies were conducted on a system that combined an infrared emitter for local heating and an exhaust umbrella to remove gaseous harmful substances from the up-per part of the poultry’s location. From the results of the experiment and the obtained graphical and analytical dependences, the optimum air temperature in the poultry’s location was determined.
