mom is going to have part of the garage sectioned off for me and the hedgehogs like a little room so she can have the loft back for herself
she is getting me some form of reptile heating lamp/heat emitter

which is best to use i cant remember which one to avoid? also will the heat lamps warm the whole viv and it wont matter about the room right? 

am i making sense lmao? xx

You will still need the garage to be warm Jake - so a heater in there would be best or a radiator, you need the ceramic heat emitters, ceramic holder and a temperature controller - placed in the centre of your vivs, they will heat the whole of the viv but you would need to check on the temperature in the garage x

When looking at the Dimplex heaters, just check what area they work best for - lou's shed is very well insulated so her heater works fab - if the garage is not as well insulated you will need a model that will cover the area x
