Default Vivarium heat

Any tips on how to get the heat down or is it okay? His cool end is currently nearing the 90F mark his bulbs not even on, I've got the Viv open for a bit but it's not really dropping haha anything to worry about or?

Not a lot you can do when the air temp in the room is 32c...

All my stats shut down for four or five hours today. It was 34c outside in the shade, and 32c in the house - it's still 29c in the room with the windows open and it's 1am in the morning !!

A fan will at least keep the air moving, and while not really cooling the ambient temps very much, it does make things "feel" cooler (but as reptiles do not sweat like us, they probably don't get the real benefit of the "wind" the way we do, but I still like to think they are cooled a little!)
I set a cheap tower fan going and blast it at one end of the vivs with the doors open. Any that don't immediately do a runner at least get the air circulated around them.
Not a great idea if you have snakes that will get lost, or eat each other though!

Was going to post a similar question to this as my night time ambient is currently 27 without a stat even on and my day time reaches around 30 on both hot and cold side of the viv so am worried there could be negative effects of this as there is no way to get the temperature down
