No holes at all they install everything inside including lights and heat. I got two fluorescent lights for UV and RHP’s installed. You just have it shipped to them and they handle the rest.
The radiant heat panels do replace the CHE. How big of one you need varies with temperature. AP cages insulate very well, so I'm guessing one 21" RHP will get it done. If you find your temps dipping too much in winter, you can always add another one. Both can run on the same thermostat.
How did you do it?AKA: Tom's baby emporium.
@GStars asked for a pic on my new baby raising enclosures the other day. I only had a partial, but I took a fuller one today.
Each cage is 96x30 and divided in the middle into two 48x30 cages for starting babies. The colored tape on each upper right corner shows the number of babies in each enclosure and also corresponds to the soaking tubs that rest on top of the cages. I've got stars on top, sulcatas in the middle and SA leopards on the bottom.

I think a 21" will probably be enough for an indoor enclosure, but only your thermometer can tell you for sure.
