I took your advice (as well as other's advice, ) and plugged in my heater.
(the light fixture that I had screwed to the floor only lasted a day. It just felt wrong and maybe dangerous?)
I unplugged my "exhaust" fan which saves me 60 Watts and will help me keep the heat in the closet.
I did a smoke test on the closet and I still have airflow out of the top.
I have a bucket of wine bubbling off CO2 so I should be OK with the CO2 levels.
(but I'm not sure. My CO2 meter is a piece of crap. Lol)
My ladybug is still hanging around.
I think that's good luck?
(I wonder if she's hungry? Maybe I should bring in some spider mites for her to feed on? Lol)
I also turned down my furnace to 65° which will save me on energy costs, and both I and my cat are more comfortable in cooler temperatures.
I also have an "ultrasonic humidifier" that I will consider plugging in, but I don't want to invite any mold.
PS... Feel free to post any suggestions or observations you have on my thread.
You've done all the homework that I never did, and I want to copy your notes. Lol
