So today at work, in my job as a megalomechanic, I was talking to one of the 'old timers' in my company about my spiders, and how I am struggling with heating the apartment at a reasonable cost (I have almost no insulation in this place) and told him I had my t's on several shelves of a sheet-metal shelf. he suggested mounting a flourescent light UNDER the shelf I want to heat, to allow the heat to rise up to the level above, simply on what the bulb generates. The more I think on this, the more it makes sense. a flourescent fixture that size might run me all of 30 bucks, and next to nothing in energy costs, think it's worth a shot?
