The thermostatically controlled heat lamp in the pumphouse wasn’t on last night, though it should have been. It reminded me that I need to make the rounds and make sure all the pipe heating cable is warm as well. Let’s all be careful out there.
If you use heat lamps, I recommend clear ones, so you can tell at a glance, day or night, if they’re on when they should be.
I was surprised to discover that some people don’t use plug-in thermostatic switches for heat lamps in these applications. Mine have always worked perfectly, and save me a ton of money.
