All of my other enclosures are heated from being near other tanks. A floor heater is way too expensive to run.either make a heating cabinet, or use a floor heater to heat an entire room. How many enclosures do you have? Also I don't know of any species that would live fine at that tempature, someone else might though
IMO, no. 21°C is ok for a few days, not 2-3 months. 25°C is a more suitable temperature for both species year round.So, slightly off topic, would a Hadrurus sp. and a Hadogenes sp. work well at 21 during the winter, going up to 25 during the summer?
What is too expensive?
Prices change in different places. Where I live, electricity has a tendency to be stupidly expensive.What is too expensive?
I run a space heater in the room, doesn't run 24/7, cycles on/off. At worse, only increases the electric by $30, and its below grade. (Basement) Room fluctuates between 23-25°C. Heated & insulated cabinet (earlier post) is used for slings and scorpions @27°C and rarely is the Flexwatt on.
If your room is above grade, maybe keep the windows shut. J/k
honestly you are not going to get many more answers that are significantly cheaper then these ones.
I understand. Having friends in Halifax, they dread winter heating bills.Prices change in different places. Where I live, electricity has a tendency to be stupidly expensive.
which isn't too bad!I understand. Having friends in Halifax, they dread winter heating bills.
Here, residential electric costs fluctuates on Kw used monthly. Use >500 Kw, rate is 6.8 cents Kw hour, above that becomes 7.7 cents Kw hour. The reverse for commercial users, but they use tens of thousands Kw and the cost is passed on to the consumer. Go figure!
