I need to know how I can make my terrarium more energy efficient.
Can you post some pics and explain what bulbs you are using and their type?
Cover up the top where you don't have the lights, with wood or house insulation.
That is a very broad question, can you give us more to go on here?
I figured that would work
Ok.. I have a 75 watt heat lamp and the same for a sun light simulater bulb thing.
I'll show you a picture of what I had yesterday..
Do you have a digital thermometer yet? Can you tell us the temps?
You can get sheets of strofoam insulation and affix it to the sides and back. This will help to hold heat in. Enclosing the top except for a place for the lights will help as well!.
Definitely with those screen enclosures there is a tremendous amount of heat escaping. Especially at the top as already stated.
Is the whole enclosure screen, or just the top?
