RE: [AGA Member] Heater

I stand corrected and thanks for the info, Mike! I keep killies
so don't use heaters, but if I ever go back to tropicals, your
method would be the safest. I was thinking the electricity bill
would increase with my method, too.  Thanks again,

If the heater is too large it will cycle continuously and wear out quicker.
The ideal heater would be on continually at a very low wattage replacing
exactly as many BTUs as was being lost and never turning off.

So a very small heater set to the target temperature you want and then a
larger back up heater set a few degrees below the target temperature would
be ideal.

Take care,
