    I guess it's probably different for those of you that have multiple snakes / breeding setups. For me, I keep my apartment (a lot smaller space than a house too :/) at 75*F in the spring, summer, and fall. Winter temps are no lower then 70*. With the AP cages' ability to hold heat I only need the UTH's for my leopard geckos (except in the rare cold snaps in the winter for boosting overnight temps) and a UTH+60 wat CHE for the ball python to keep everyone in their ranges.
    No cage is too large - nature is the best template - a snoot can't be booped too much

    Oil filled here too. In the summer it doesn't need to do much getting the Texas sun on two of the outer walls most of the day. I close the A/C vent....cause I keep the rest of house pretty cool, at night down right chilly for many people.

    This is a great thread. Thank you to the original poster and those whove responded. Im considering heating my room and it seems like oil heater on a thermostat is the recommendation. Any oil heater in particular or brand I should look at? Thanks!

    Something along these lines with the analog dials as the digital ones tend to break. I have this same one and have used it for 10yrs without issues

    As a former firefighter and current Emt. The worse thing you can is plug a heater into surge protector! Same with a microwave! Other than that. Be careful with your ches. Pretty much nothing to worry about!

    Oh and clean your dryer vents out peeps! Ok Im done. Lol

    Slight tangent.... I thought that surge protectors were a good thing !?

    The wife always tells me to use them using the hedge trimmer
