Whoa the snow in the background!!!!!! Here in SE TX it's gonna be in the 70's today lol.
I have a similar incubator, just the bigger model (Janoel Jn8-48). It came with styrofoam insulating shields to put around it. If you still have the box this bator came in, check and see if they included any insulation.
I would not have any concerns about wrapping a blanket around the bottom of the incubator. I did that with my Little Giant this year as my room was drafty. The sides of the incubator don't get all that hot. The control panel did get pretty warm, so I would leave that part open. Just make sure to keep the top open, and plenty of ventilation available for the eggs (don't cover up any vent openings)

Oops sorry i didn't see this post that's a good idea that's why though I set it behind my tv so the heat coming off my tv keeps it warm behind there and there is another shelf above that has the vcr on and so it keep the heat in there a bit
