space heater?
    #2228862 - 01/08/04 06:05 PM (13 years, 7 months ago)

Can I use a small space heater to heat an incubation chamber? If so, where would I place the space heater?

I don't see why not... as long as the temperature is right. I suggest putting your jars in some larger container, and connecting a tube from your space heater to the container. If the temperature you get is too high, increase the length of the tube to allow for more time to cool. Maybe there are better ways but thats all I can think of.

You could, but, its not the safest idea...and it will really kick up your electric bill.

Its just best to buy an aquarium heater for $15-30 at your local pet shop, and put it in a jug of water. The heated jug will keep your incubator nice and warm.

WTF.... A space heater works fine -- just keep an eye on the temp. Just don't let them overheat! The cold won't kill them, as long as they don't freeze, but the heat can!

I have a heater on the side of my gas stove in the kitchen -- I used to keep my stuff in a box next to it a certain distance and that worked fine. You just have to watch the temp for a little bit because it'll keep heating, and realize that the outside weather will affect it, too, since the inside might be warmer, so keep an eye on it every now and then. There's no reason you can't do it this way, but be careful, and try to stay on the lower side, if you need to.
