    Hi, all I just ordered one of these, partially based on the article that was on BYC the other day about keeping them warm in the winter. Have always used the heat light/lamps but not happy with them, so going to try this. I like this because I can mount it in a place where they can't touch it - and it's thermostat controlled. We'll see how it goes (got one for my dogs' house, too). My one big concern is dust, so may have to blow it out every few days with canned air. Anybody else have experience with these?
