Will this work if my house is almost always around 60 degrees?
Hello -- great forum. I have a question. I have two new starters going, don't feel like making a proofing box and have to keep turning the lights on and off to keep the oven at the right temperature. I might look into getting a lower wattage bulb or unscrewing one, but there are cages on them and it looks like a hassle. At night the starters get cold and if I forget to set the timer they get too hot. Actual conversation at midnight: "Honey, that light was supposed to be on, right?" "NO! Oh no! They're going to die! Go turn it off!". "This is crazy, you know." "Yeah, but go turn off the light, please?"
I have put a pan of warm water in there which helps maintain the heat longer, but would rather just leave it on the counter. During winter, I have no warm place in the house except for my bed and we're not like that. During summer, it's way too hot in here, but I could manage to keep it in the basement but might not bake much anyway so that might not matter.
Can I just feed twice per day and let it adapt to the environment we have? In winter the thermostat is set at 53 during the night.
