heat mat advice

Ive installed a couple of heat mats under my tents, what temps best to set them at and should that be a constant temp night and day?

 

With the heat mats installed, working and keeping my pots at a cosy temprature is the air temp as much of a concern?

My.understanding is air temp is still important when root temps are sorted.

 

My current aim is

Soil: lights on 22/23c / lights off 20c / never drop below 18c

Air temp: 25c in the shade lights on / no higher than 30c lights on / no lower than 20c lights on/off

Canopy temp: 28/29c lights on / no higher than 35c

 

I'm not 100% sure all these are correct and the higher/lower levels are temporary levels, I wouldn't leave my plants there but if it peaked there for a few mins while transitioning between lights on/off I wouldn't worry. I try and keep temps at my preferred levels at all times.

thanks for that mate, those temps sound good, from what ive read yes air temps are still important but keeping the roots at the right temp will still keep the plant healthy even if the air temps are low but yeild will still suffer,
