Heating?

Hey, I’m planning on joining this hobby, and I am going to have to keep my ants inside...with AC. You see, I live in Arizona and the ants here are obviously...uhhh...used to the heat you could say. XD Ive heard on an AntsCanada video that you can use heating cables and heat lamps to simulate the sun and stuff. I get the general idea, but I’m wondering if anybody has suggestions for quality and affordable heating cables and heat lamps. Your input would be very valuable to me! :) Thanks!

I havn't tried what you could call "good" heating techniques but I've heard that brewery heating cables work well. I think...
