Substrate Heater vs Heat Lamp

I just had yet another quick question about heaters. My room stays fairly warm around 74-76 during the summer months and around 70 during the winter months. When I have the lamp on the cool area of the terrarium is around 80 but with the substrate heater on it's right around 76. Should I still use the lamp or just use it during the cooler winter months? Thanks for the help.

as long as your hot spot is around 85 you dont need any lights
if you want light on the tank so you can see the snake better get a florecent there about $10 bucks at wal-mart

Thumbs up Heat vrs Lights

Hey Jotun
Kings dont require alot of heat lighting .
Like Joe and Melissa said use flouresent lights for viewing and substrate heating for takeing care of the snakes needs.
I have heat lite's for day and i dont use any night time heat source in the summer just in the winter do i use heat pads.
