When I lived in a cold-winter climate, I put many plants in the bedroom farthest from
the furnace, closed the heating vents to that room, and put standard fluorescent lights
(less heat radiating at the plants) overhead. I set the timer so the lights were on at
night, both so I could see the plants when I was not at work, and so the lights would
keep the room from freezing at night.

One year I did lose a few Aloe to freezing. They were closest to the window.
