Feed hummingbirds in freezing weather with the
easy-to-use hummingbird feeder heater, Hummer Hearth!

Hummer Hearth Setup and Use Instructions

The Hummer Hearth hummingbird feeder heater will fit hummingbird feeders with a ring-type perch and a bottom without protrusions so the product can be directly in contact with the bottom of the feeder. This creates a warm pocket of air which heats the bottom of the feeder. Do don't use if, when attached to feeder, the bulb is in contact with the feeder. There must be clearance between the bulb and any surface on the feeder.

Initial Adjustment

The Hummer Hearth attaches to the hummingbird feeder with three hooks that engage the ring perch. These hooks are attached to shock cord which is adjusted by squeezing the cord lock and moving the cord lock along the shock cord. Do not install lamp holder.

  1. For bowl type feeders remove the hanging hook, for bottle type feeders remove bottle.
  2. Turn the feeder over and place the Hummer Hearth on top of the feeder.
  3. Connect the hooks to the ring perch and use the cord lock to adjust the tension of the shock cords.
  4. Adjust the tension on each hook by removing slack or tension as needed until all three hooks have about the same tension and are spaced evenly. Once properly adjusted this step is not required every time the feeder is filled. See Fig. 1.

    Tip: It's best to have just enough tension to hold the Hummer Hearth against the bottom of the feeder.

Filling Bowl-Type Hummingbird Feeders

  1. With the lamp holder removed, place the Hummer Hearth upright on a flat surface, place the bowl feeder on top of the Hummer Hearth.
  2. Fill the feeder. See Fig. 2.
  3. Replace the feeder top.
  4. Now, holding the feeder down against the Hummer Hearth with one hand, attach the hooks to the ring perch with the other hand. See Fig. 3.
  5. Adjust for even tension and spacing between hooks.
  6. Attach the ant moat cover. See Fig. 4.

Filling Bottle-Type Hummingbird Feeders

  1. With the lamp holder removed, place the Hummer Hearth on a flat surface, place the feeder bottom on top of the Hummer Hearth.
  2. Now, holding the feeder down against the Hummer Hearth with one hand, attach the hooks to the ring perch with the other hand. See Fig. 5.
  3. Adjust for even tension and spacing between hooks.
  4. Fill the bottle, screw the base with the Hummer Hearth attached to the filled bottle. See Fig. 6.

Hang Your Hummingbird Feeder

  1. Hang feeder with the Hummer Hearth hummingbird feeder heater attached normally.
  2. Remove packing material from lamp holder.
  3. Be sure the lamp holder is not plugged into power.
  4. Squeeze the two metal tabs on the lamp holder together and insert the lamp holder into the round hole in the base of the Hummer Hearth until the metal tabs snap in place. See Fig 7.
  5. Release the metal tabs and check that the lamp holder is firmly attached into the hummer hearth.
  6. Plug the lamp holder cord into a GFCI outlet. (See safety instructions.)
  7. Verify that the bulb is working.

Removing Feeder for Filling

  1. Unplug lamp holder cord: squeeze metal tabs on lamp holder together then remove from Hummer Hearth.
  2. Follow filling instructions in reverse order to prepare for refilling.

Tips for Use

The Hummer Hearth is supplied with a 7-watt candelabra C7 bulb as a heat source. The key is to heat the feed gently without overheating. Generally, this will keep a small feeder thawed to about 15 degrees F. Feeder size, shape, and wind conditions can affect this greatly. A 15-watt candelabra bulb (not supplied) can be used which will keep smaller feeders thawed to about 5 degrees F.
