You need a thermostat

If you are going to keep the snake outside, you are really going to need a whole new heating setup. Keep in mind you will need to invest some money in quality equipment. A radiant heat panel is by far your best choice in my opinion. They last 30 years, are capable of putting out a ton of heat, and don't emit light so they can be used 24/7. I use pro products heat panels and have been very impressed. (www.pro-products.com). A good quality thermostat is a must considering the snake is in a barn. Helix are very nice. Also check out the Ranco controllers Jeff Ronne sells.

Good Luck.

:Unfortionaly i have to keep my snakes outside for reasons that i can't even understand, and is becuase of my step mother.

:So anyway enough about her...
:I have my boa cage in our barn, the barn doesn't hold heat, so what ever temp it is outside, thats what it is inside. I was wondering during the summer, what is the best way to control the tempiture so that it doesn't get to hot, and not to cool. I have under tank heaters, as well as heat lamps, i just don't want to use more than i need to and end up with a over heated snake..
