I HAVE TWO SULCATA TURTLES THAT NEED A CONSTANT WARM TEMPERATURE FOR OUTDOORS. MY HUSBAND BUILT AN INSULATED 3X2 FOOT HOUSE FOR THEM. I KEEP A GAUGE THAT SHOWS A CONSTANT 70 DEGREES. WE ARE HAVING A HORRIFIC RAIN STORM AND THE TURTLES ARE STAYING DRY AND WARM. I DID A LOT OF RESEARCH FOR A HEATER. WE HAVE ONLY USED IT FOR A FEW WEEKS, BUT SO FAR, IT IS GREAT!!!
THE ONLY NEGATIVE WOULD BE THE DESIGN. THE TURTLES BOTH CUDDLE UNDERNEATH THE DEVICE. A LONGER, NARROW DEVICE WOULD BE IDEA, THEN THE WHOLE HOUSE COULD BE UTILIZE AND NOT JUST THE ONE SIDE.

Decent heater, not quite warm enough

Heater seems of good quality and the technical support is excellent. One phone call and you get straight to the inventor of the product!

Heater seems of good quality and the technical support is excellent. One phone call and you get straight to the inventor of the product!

However, the element only warms 30 degrees warmer than the coldest temperature here (-13 degrees only warmed to 22 degrees) in a mid-sized doghouse. Insulating doghouse may be necessary for good results.

The thermostat dial was not accurate (it was "off" by 20-30 degrees), so I had to manually guess the desired temperature by turning it until the heat shut off at the desired temperature.

Overall, it is a good quality unit, although I wish it could heat better in the colder climates.

Comments about Hound Heater Dog House Furnace:

I bought this for my 65 pound Sulcata tortoise, Grissom. He got too big to bring inside for the winter, so I built a house for him, hoping a heat lamp would be okay. Wrong! He kept breaking the lamp off and the glass was everywhere, plus it had no temperature regulation. I installed it by myself with just a screw gun and 4 wood screws. I set it on medium and checked on it when the temperature was 38 degrees outside and it was 74-PERFECT, inside. I need something durable because this tortoise is very strong. So far I give it 5 stars. I recommend it highly.

Comments about Hound Heater Dog House Furnace:

works just fine this far south as we don't have many deep freeze's. even with low's around 18 it kept dog house warm. my dog house the roof removes so installation was easy. if you had to go through the door it would have been very difficult. take interior access into consideration. for the same reason access to thermostat is difficult to adjust. product could be improved by having thermostat with wiring going out hole for power cord and mounted outside.
