Hello, I made my incubator out of a polystyrene cooler too, i have 12 runner duck eggs in at the mo, the have been in for a week, i candleded today and i think 10 out of 12 are doing good, one deffo is no good so have taken it out.
I have a clip on light with a 15 watt bulb in. I made a hole thru the side of the cooler and duct taped up around it so it was draught proof, a thermometer and hygrometer stuck about the level of the eggs, 2 cardboard eggbox bases for the eggs to sit in, on a bed of damp face flannels to regulate the humidity, i put a 6" square of clear plastic as a window in the top, and i control the temp by either unplugging some ventilation holes i put around the top of the box if it gets too warm, or plugging up if its cooler. I am turning the eggs 3 times a day (giving them a pep talk too, but not sure they are listening)!
I would love to have put a little fan in too, but i am a bit hesitant as i dont know how to and it is quite a damp atmostphere in there.... But so far so good without it, so i am not going to bother with it, i am going to carry on as i am for now. I think the most important factor is where you put your incubator, i am lucky enough to have a spare space in the eaves without any heating or windows, so the tempreture stays pretty regular. I tried almost all the rooms to see which room was the most stable tempreture wise, and ran the incubator for a few days to be sure i could hold the right conditions for the little egglings.
I dont know if any of what i have written helps, but good luck!
