Space Heater vs Light Bulb

measuring the power used by the smal space heater in the refrigerator root cellar

The new space heater is performing nicely in the refrigerator root cellar.

It seems to be using less energy than the light bulb. This might be due to the less time it takes to heat up with the help of a fan blowing the air around.

We did notice a few sprouts on the carrots that were most likely caused by the light bulb, which is another reason to choose a space heater for this application.
