Mine only last for two years, as well. I have one for the turtle and its on 24/7, it does a great job but their claim of 5 years is a joke. :roll:Nancy said:The ceramic heat emitters are supposed to last on average about 5 years. Although I only use mine when I have rescues, when the time is added up, mines probably been on the go for close to two years.
I just use the ceiling light for lighting with one "daylight" CFL light bulb in it. Instead of a timer I have an alert on my phone before I leave in the morning to remind me to turn it on just in case I think I'm ready to leave and haven't turned it on yet. Then I leave the light on all day, regardless of how sunny it is that day, until 9 p.m., I put another alert in my phone to remind me to turn it off as well. If you have the extra money, and are out and about quite a bit, you could buy a timer instead, I just use my phone to remind me as I'm pretty much a homebody and just forgetful.Animal Lover24 said:If I keep the hedgie in my room will the celing light work with the CHE?
