    can a uqp add **?

    Wondering if a uqp can take a 20* uq and get it down to 10*? Any experience with this?

    I have used my UQP on a 20* UQ down to single digits before. In my experience it adds 5-10* to your setup.

    I would be hesitant to put an actual number on how many degrees it will add - but yes, it will definitely enhance your UQ rating. It also assists in mitigating heat loss due to blowing wind - and if you happen to have your UQ hung slightly wrong, with some small gaps, it can help to compensate for those a bit as well.

    Good info to know. I found I can take my Incubators a bit below the stated temp, so a UQP should help a little more. I recently ordered one to try in the winter.

    it doesn't really add warmth like insulation, it mainly helps the uq hold the heat in that it does have. I think for winter time it does make enough of a difference to always carry mine. Certainly worth having...
