Right, I'm curious what do you guys think is the best heating units available?

I know that say a heat mat would be great for a nocturnal animal but not so great for say a beardie but theres always ways around that (i.e put the heat mat on the side of the viv and have a normal lamp style bulb shining there...

But anyway what do you guys think is best?

Heat mat
Basking Bulb/Ceramic Bulb for nocturnals
AHS heaters.

I'm starting to think the AHS heaters could be the number one choice, i mean they include a pulse stat ceramic heating element, reflector etc the ones i've seen are like £90 quid though... But when you take into consideration the separate costs of all these its still not half bad.


So tell us all what you have, and why you have them or even if you want something else! : victory:

I have mainly ceramic bulbs but one AHS heater. Would swap to AHS's if I had enough money, it so much neater than having loads of cables and thermostats lying around and they work brilliantly.
