Don't forget Kool-Lube to cool and lubricate your blades.
So, either heating or cooling the back yard with an old fashioned pet door just won't do anymore. In some cases the energy waste is like opening and closing the door itself 4 or 5 times a day.
Perfect Pet has the answer with The Rough Weather/All-Weather Door's air pocket between 2 soft flaps, making it a great energy efficient insulator.
The All-Weather (rough weather) series in Small, Medium, Extra Large and Super Large are designed to give an air pocket of up to 3 inches between the 2 flaps in a door installation. And with the available wall tunnel kit, an air pocket of up to 9 inches. This is serious energy efficiency. (Also see the wind resistance tests below)
Protector All Weather Pet Door is identical to the Regular All-Weather Door (rough weather door described above) and ALSO INCLUDES a special alarm - an important EXCLUSIVE accessory. An on/off switch activates the audible ALARM that alerts you if the interior slide has been removed or even just partially removed. This is important for those who wish to know immediately that there is an attempt to enter or exit the pet door. This feature works when installed in doors or walls.
Without proper heat, reptiles can not produce the digestive enzymes to properly break down their food intake. The large smooth surface of Zoo Meds Repticare® Rock Heaters allows one large or several small reptiles to lay on the heated stone.
Repticare Rock Heaters are made of a hydrated rock material that is twice as strong as cement or pumice, resulting in excellent conductivity and increased product longevity. Hot spots are not a problem with a completely encapsulated full coverage nichrome heating element that distributes heat evenly.

The Science of Heat Rocks
Please Note: A rock heaters function is to facilitate digestion. A rock heater should never be the sole source of heat unless the ambient air temperatures in the cage are sufficient for your type of reptile.
Excellent for larger size glass terrariums (40 gallons and up), wood terrariums, acrylic terrariums, or wire cage enclosures.
In nature the sun beats down on rocks and pavement and many species of reptiles will take advantage of this heat during the day or early evening to help "heat up" their digestive tract and facilitate food digestion. The ability to focus the Spot Bulb on a branch or a rock, allows for the reproduction of a more natural basking environment while also providing stimulating UVA light. Vital UVA rays promote breeding, feeding and are beneficial to a reptile's psychological well being.
It's the best of two worlds.
The black powder-coated steel hoods are 12" wide and are available for terrariums 24", 30", 36", and 48" in length.
Each socket/fixture has its own rocker switch for independent light selection. Other features include an aluminum reflector for increased UVB penetration, and an internally grounded receptacle for rock heaters, waterfalls, or other in-tank accessories.
