Heating Cable Question

For those of you running heating cables in your Hybrid Nests do you shut them off at night to simulate the temperature drop? I have my light running on a timer but was recently thinking about the heating cable also.

It depends on the time of year for me. during the summer i have my cables shut off at night. During the cooler months i have them on 24hrs, until it comes time to hibernate, then i have them shut of completely.
