Hi again Jaybee! Well here in Florida the air vents run up along the ceilng instead of the floor. I just moved here last year so I'm just guessing at the reason but it could be to protect from flooding? Also our a/c isn't always on but if you think it would still help I could put them like on a counter or something up higher underneath one of the a/c vents. We do have a temp probe which is how we knew that the temp had dropped to 50. I was watching my eggs like a hawk lol how sad. Anyway I might just have to seek out the dark, creepy and cooler places of my home.
If all else fails I might try putting an ice pack on top of / underneath the container
I'm in SW Florida too so feel your pain.
I had a month-old Exo incubator quit entirely on me a few months ago (my eggs went from 68-80F overnight) and I've replaced it with a Reptipro 6000 which so far is doing its job just fine, though I keep a close eye on it...
Unfortunately I have yet to find a better incubator that holds at the correct temperature. Most wine coolers top out at 65F and I'm not willing to incubate that low.
Hi Laura, yes mine went from 72 down to 50 degrees in about an hour lol. I was seriously freaking out that's for sure! I just hope my babies are ok. Right now I've decided to try something different. I'm keeping the eggs in the incubator during the day (and check on the temps constantly, then at night when I'm going to go to bed I'll take them out since it's cooler at night here anyway. I just don't trust it enough now to leave them in there while I'm sleeping and not able to check on them.
