oops, I should add that this is a pipe wire. Its main job is to keep pipes from freezing. It actually does not appear to get too hot. You can easily hold it when its plugged in, but it does not allow for any form of freezing and the wire remains on when the lights are out. I have them on differant circuits as a failsafe. It is easily accomplished and my plants will not freeze, but rather be nice and warm. The circuit in the room runs the pool and yard plugs which often trip the circuit. I start the pool early so it is warm by the end of April. I am one that rather be safe than sorry.
One good bit of news is I spoke to my husband just now about this and he informed me that there is a hidden vent in the room. It is still not insulated, but will be warmer now and nothing should freeze anyway. You think he might have mentioned it since I start my seeds in there every spring. Maybe I should have asked. I use this room because the kids have no use to be in it and we have large shelf units attached to the walls on all the sides. I use it for storage of my homemade wines and ales [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img] During the winter it still may get too cool so I will continue to use the wire just in case.
If anyone comes through stop and get some wine [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wow.gif[/img]
