If the tanks are empty, no need for the tank heaters.

I was under the impression that the tank heater pads radiated heat upward a little bit this is not the case? (we do have about 15 gallons in the freshwater tank though) so if the heat does not radiate upwards OC I can always drain the freshwater tank and just turn off the heaters. Advice, please, my friend

If the tanks are empty, no need for the heaters. If you have liquid in one or more of them, you need to turn them on.
