Depends on the kind of temps you're reaching. I have to say, 50 watts seems like it could be too much for the summer months, but it really it comes down to the kind of temperatures being reached.

I live in maryland and right now its summer. I just need something to absord or evaporate the water to avoid mold and to keep the temp around 75. But i was going to use a 40 watt floresnt bulb all year. Or should i use a 25 for now. and how long should i keep it on daily/hourly.
