Thanks for the good advice and I always apreciate your posts.

For many years I have run Barrs and Vision cages with the Exoterra Heat Wave pads and ZooMed rheos. Never a problem with adjusting to consistant temps for winter and summer. Problem came about with new cages and when Exoterra changed their pads to the new style "Rainforest" and "Desert". I tried both and found they worked great during last summer but during the winter I could not get adequate heat from even the Desert model. Went to the ZooMed pads which worked fine during the winter. I noticed that these pads do run fairly hot even at low settings. So now I am facing the opposite problem-lol. Too much heat in the warmer season.

Never worked with thermostats so it looks like I might give one a try. Also may revisit the Exoterra pads or try another brand. Bill
