There are many experienced keepers who don't use belly heat and just run an ambient temp using a RHP, CHE or heat tape. It's a little more advanced as far as knowing your snakes and identifying issues, though. Often not suggested for newer snake keepers, but you can always look into it and see if it's something you feel will work for you. I tried it last summer and ran it til fall when it got too cold to maintain without cranking the house heat. I'm switching back again soon for the summer into fall.
