The Pet Supplies for Reptiles – Part 1 The first thing you need to know before you buy a reptile thermostat is that it actually fits the usual standard outlet. It has a maximum wattage load of 1110W at 110V and also fits into the normal power outlet. It has a low power consumption of below 3 watts. The sensor probe is about 9 inches long. It comes with an instruction booklet, which shows you how to properly use it.

Pet Supplies for Reptiles – Part 2 In addition to the above, you also have to understand that some thermostats also have a humidity sensing setting. If you want to use this feature, you have to adjust the set point. The set point is usually set by the manufacturer. One thing you must remember is that temperature setting needs to be closely monitored. This is to ensure that the reptiles’ body will not be overheated or too cold and that both temperature and humidity level are well-balanced.

Pet Supplies for Reptiles – Part 3 If you purchase a heater with a temperature-sensing feature, you must also purchase a proportional thermostat. A proportional thermostat has two sets of controls. One of the controls is for heating the cage while the other control is for regulating the temperatures of the water.

Pet Supplies for Reptiles – Part 4 To provide optimum heating and cooling, a heater must also have proper venting. There are many types of venting available. You can choose from glass, acrylic, stainless steel, brass, etc. Some reptile tanks do not require heat lamps at all and for these tanks you can use a dimming thermostat.

Pet Supplies for Reptiles – Part 5 In order to keep the temperatures comfortable even in the cold winter months, your heating unit must also have a built-in timer. A good reptile tank thermometer with an alarm is perfect for monitoring the temperatures. There are several types of alarm in the market. You can choose from battery-operated, electronic, or spring-loaded. The battery-operated ones have a battery door which can be closed once the thermostat is reached the set temperature, whereas the spring-loaded one requires that a glass bulb is replaced every time it senses a change in temperature.

Pet Supplies for Reptiles – Part 6 Most manufacturers also include a night fall sensor with the thermostats. This sensor will detect when the room becomes too dark for it to function properly. An infrared night fall detector is capable of detecting heat pulses, which allow it to function even when the entire room is dark. When the temperature of the water is low, the thermal shut-off valve on the thermostat transfers the power to the alarm.

Pet Supplies for Reptiles – Part 7 Once you have found your thermostat, it is very important that you maintain it properly. A regular cleaning process of the thermostat helps in keeping it in a good working condition. You can clean the thermostat either by hand or in a reptile tank spray. In case of a dry snake thermostat, it is better to use a reptile tank spray. It will prevent mineral deposits from accumulating on the thermostat and increasing its temperature range.
