I use two infrared heat lamps. One is 150 watts which stays on all day and all night and the other is 60 watts and we turn that one off at night to lower the temps a bit. They are both located on the right side of the cage on top of the shelf inside the cage. We have no problem with the temps staying high enough. It's about 90-92 F on the warm side and 85-88 on the cool side during the day.
When she is about the shed, we put a heating blanket under her water bowl on the cool side because that's where she spends most of her time. Other than that, that is all we use. My power bill for last month was $80.
I know the picture is small but you can kind of see how we have it set-up. Only one of the lamps was in place for the picture.
:What are you using to heat the cage? I am building a cage that is 8x4x4 and want to make sure it is warm enough. If you could include wattages of bulbs that would be great.
