I've never noticed heat from the coir decomposing, but relying on decomposition would be dangerous on a few levels, anyway. I use a heat pad.

Termites have quite complex mechanisms for controlling mound temperature and use a variety of methods to do so. Everything from managing heat from the sun by opening and closing vents, to producing their own metabolic heat. They also have to keep the mounds at near 100% humidity so they don't dry out, as the termites themselves have really thin exoskeletons.
