Anyone know how much extra heat a 4'
Arcadia 12% UVB T5 HO light might add ? I am already at about 92f at the end of the day.
Thanks

I run 2 3 foot ones in my closed chamber and it raises the temps 5-6 degrees

In a closed chamber, it could add a lot. It really depends on the amount of ventilation. I run the shorter 22" one in one of my closed chambers and I get a 10-12 degree increase in ambient. Only your thermometer will be able to answer this question with any certainty.

Thanks.....I installed a 4' in an enclosed chamber. Seemed to raise the temps a little. Only had it a couple of days so I am still watching temps.
