It's most helpful on homemade. Good luck
i have a incubator made from a stand up freezer its about 21 inches by 21 inches. its about 5 foot tall.pretty well insulated from what i can tell.i built tilting racks in it to turn the eggs im gunna put it on a timer. i have a fan in the top pushing air down. theres two light sockets in the top wired to a water heater thermostat. and i also put another termostat in the bottom with another bub hooked to it.So they both just turn off and on wen they get ready to.
Thanks. the fan runs full time even if the lights are off. I started with just two bulbs in the top and had the fan pushing the air to the bottom. but I took one bulb out of the top when I added another light and thermostat to the bottom. why would I add dryer vent what does that do. I just kinda put stuff together with pics and videos haha. the problem seems like it might have to do with the termostats or some thing I saw that they should be pretty close to the light for radiant heat. I got thermometers on the top and bottom that show what the max and minimum temp has been but sometimes the thermometer says itll be 99 to 100 max and the minimum is always like 93 or 95
