Did you know that at any given time the temperature in your Hova-Bator still air incubator can vary by up to 5 degrees from top to bottom and from the center to the corners? This occurs primarily because heat rises. This temperature variation can have a significant impact on your hatch rates.
This problem can be significantly reduced by installing a circulated air fan kit into your incubator. Since heat naturally rises, it is important to circulate the hot air from the warmer spots to the cooler spots, and vice versa, for a much more uniform and consistent temperature. This can have a positive impact on hatch results. The more consistent air temperature also ensures that your thermostat is cycling on and off at the appropriate times, not just when the air around the thermostat heats or cools.
Putting a fan inside your incubator is a great way to increase hatch rates, but it is not just as simple as buying a PC fan or a cheap fan kit. There are a few things that you need to keep in mind:
- Too much air circulation is BAD for eggs, as it will dry them out. If we think about it, there isn’t a fan blowing on eggs in nature. The only reason that an incubator needs the fan is to keep the temperature more consistent (like in nature). BEWARE of CHEAP kits. They often use HIGH speed fans. Almost all fans on the market are designed for cooling things, so they are made to move as much air as possible. This is not what you want.
- If your fan is too powerful it can OVERHEAT your incubator. Fans generate heat. Many people using alternative fans have come to check on their eggs only to find them cooked because the fan caused the incubator to overheat.
- The direction the air flows and the positioning of the fan inside your incubator is critical to maintaining a consistent temperature throughout the incubator. Our Fan Kit includes simple instructions on how to do this.
