It never gets very hot in my house for very long, how do I distribute ThermoPlus?
Animals react with a delayed effect. It is estimated that they will take as long to recover as the duration of the heat period. Therefore, it is better to distribute ThermoPlus continuously during the risk period than to distribute and stop the product during each heat episode.
I have put fans in the building. Will ThermoPlus take action?
Fans are of obvious benefit, although it is clear that it is difficult to properly ventilate all areas of the building. ThermoPlus facilitates sweating, so fans will help evaporate this sweat and thus improve cooling of the animals.
I already distribute 3 to 400g of sodium bicarbonate. Do I need ThermoPlus?
ThermoPlus already contains sodium bicarbonate, it is a more complete solution. Do not remove it completely: with 100g of ThermoPlus and 100g of bicarbonate, you will have a more technical product for an equivalent price.
