Parrot Safe Heater

Hi all! Long time no see the move went well and we are settling in the home. The bird room trends toward being cold... probably 65 or so. Do you all think it needs a heater? They seem fine so far, but they are in travel cages still because the mover is going too be late... :/ if I were to get a heater, what is a bird safe, small heater? Any recommendation? We've been spending a lot of money with this move too, so cheap would be an added bonus

I use a tubular heater, which is about 12ft long in my outdoor bird room. I have used them out in the aviaries too with a guard over the top

Have a read of this, hopefully it will help you choose one

I bought poroton bricks with holes for my central heater.
These are bricks to build energy saving houses.
They make every heater with a hot surface bird safe.

I have an oil-filled electric heater in the passerine room (it used to be the mud room so there was no radiator in there) and the parrot birdroom has a radiator but we are also going to buy a pair of vented propane ones because, this winter, there was a day when there was no electricity (big storm knocked down something) for hours (and, although my heat is gas, if there is no electricity for the automatic ignition, it doesn't work) and I almost had a panic attack!
