Default Heating Issues

Hey all! It’s been quite a while since I’ve been on here; hope everyone is well!

I’ve recently moved rooms from the second story to the basement. Overall, I’ve had no issues with heating up until this point, but this morning I woke up to find Christina’s house at 70 and she was obviously lethargic; ugh! I have the Midwest Guinea Habitat set up with two CHE lamps. I guess my question is really just an invite to throw out some more suggestions; I’m gonna throw a warm water bottle in there for her to warm herself up so she doesn’t stay lethargic, but any ideas would be appreciated. I’ve thrown around the idea of a space heater, but I’m in and out of the house most of the day so that’s not a safe option. I’ve also considered MacGyver-ing a sort of “wrapping” so that the house isn’t so airy since the sides and lid are made of metal wire. Thanks y’all!

Could you not put the space heater on a pulse thermostat to stop the whole room dropping in temp?
That way its controlled, the same way a CHE is. So it wont drop nut wont be on if its not needed? Would make that idea safer.

Thats all I have sorry!

It didn’t even cross my mind to hook a space heater up to a thermostat; I’ll look into that some more definitely! I have a feeling now that the AC is on for summer this is something I’ll have to be more proactive about, so I’ll definitely do some digging on that idea! Thanks!

Is there any chance that the AC/vent blows near her cage and could be causing that area to be a bit cooler now and harder for the emitter to keep things warm?
