My pet dragon is in love with hanging out in our screened in porch! Every day in the Summer I put in out there for an hour or 2 so that he can get his vitamin D! He cannot stay out too long because it can be too hot.
There unquestionably is no way for him to cool down outside plus I don’t want him to die, but in the winter, it is simply too chilly for him to hang out in his favorite spot.
He loves running plus playing in the huge porch section though so I feel bad when I have to put him back in his little terrarium. I wish there was some way to have some temperature control in the screened in porch, but he gets himself so close to the ground that I think some sort of underfloor heating plus cooling system would work well. I have heard that there are pipes that can be installed under the flooring and they move warm water through them if you want heat. Chilly water goes through them if you want to be cool, and with the temperature set to 75 degrees year round, my pet had the ability to live outside year round. It would not matter that much of the temperature controlled air goes out of all of the screens because the floor would still stay comfortable for my lizard. I think that something similar to this would be undoubtedly extravagant though, but maybe not too. I would only have to install underfloor heating plus cooling in up to 160 square feet. I definitely want to look into it for my little buddy.
