Re: Heat lamps for temporary freeze protection

I’m not a fan of leaving a heater or lights on when not present. Especially a bulb designed to heat which means larger resistance.

Looking at the forecast it’s is going to get cold, yes, but only one night below freezing. It shouldn’t mess up your water systems. This is an early than usual cold system. Normal highs are 60.
