I agree, best to have the heat & not need it that need it & not have it. I keep my ultratherm heat mats on Ronco stats in the low 80`s & most of the time here in AZ they are not even on but during the winter here at 4000ft it provides a nice warm spot for them if they want it.

I am form England & have tried all sorts of heating over the last 37 years herping. I do like the industrial tubular heaters they use for workshops, sheds & garages over there, they do need to be on a stat as they get very hot & need to be behind a protective cage so the snakes dont get burned.

They work really well for larger enclosures but cannot seem to get them in the US. For most applications however the Ultratherm UTH work very well providing a nice mild warmth without any fear of burning.

Andy.
