Draenog That's already quite closed off (the cage) which should hold in heat better than an open cage. If the cage is on the ground try putting it somewhere higher. Putting styrofoam underneath can help as well if you can't get it off the ground. Don't put the cage next to an outside wall, they're always colder.

CHEs can only bump up the temps a couple of degrees so if the room is very cold there's not much else you can do except for heating up the entire room.

uubermonk25 I'm not sure of the exact demensions but I'm using an XXL plastic storage container with holes drilled on the sides. I use a wire reptile screen to place the Heat emmitter on. Her cage is in our dining area between the living room at kitchen. I'm in a 4 bedroom apartment

twobytwopets The colder the ambient temperature in the room is, the harder any heat system will have to work. How you heat your house will make a difference. Some cage types are easier to heat than others.
Personally I use a space heater.

Draenog What kind of cage do you have, what are the dimensions and where is it placed?

Heating in the winter?

Hello again! So I'm writing this post just to hear how you all heat your little friends in the colder months. I live in Colorado and the temperatures at night have started dropping very low at night these last couple weeks. I noticed olives thermometer was reading very low so I decided to set her up with a second heat emmitter to get that internal cage temp back up into the high 70s. Is there anything else or different you guys suggest to help control that temp in the colder months? Any suggestions are welcome!
