With MicroZone’s patented automatic temperature controls, piglets are kept at the optimum temperature for their age and surrounding room environment. Our system is easy to use and can save customers up to 40% in energy costs. With the electrical savings alone, MicroZone typically pays for itself in twelve to eighteen months, but with rebates available from some utility providers, it could be as little as six months.
