Cost of CHE
We are looking at getting an APH and getting a vivarium with a ceramic heater element, but wondering if anyone could help me out with how much it could cost, it will be on 24 hours a day?
Many thanks

Invest in a PULSE PROPORTIONAL THERMOSTAT to use with the CHE. It will work very efficiently and should make the CHE last a very long time. Used this method myself in a setup with no problems for years using the same element. Get a day/night stat then it will run more economically. You shouldn't be running the heating anyhow 24/7 :whistling2:

Stop being a cheapskate and have the best for the new housemate :2thumb:
