    I have one and it's running in my big bathroom, Location: an incubator is designed to bring normal room temperture to the desired temperture. Room temperture of 60 F or below will reduce the temp in the incubator. Room temp change of 10 F or more will change the temp in the incubator & is more pronounced below a temperture of 70 F. The location of the machine is important to successful operation. A room temperture from 70 to 80F is ideal, and fresh air without drafts is necessary. Be sure no direct sunlight strikes the incubator and that it sets level. A constant room temperture within a few degrees is best. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    First I have to say that anything that plugs in has a fire danger to it. That being said, foam incubators are pretty safe. I have never known one to burn. It needs to be in a room that is stable anyway. If it helps any I was a fireman for 13 years an have a background in electrical an I have several running in my house an don't loose any sleep over them.
