In this paper, we observe how the heat equation in a non-cylindrical domain can arise as the asymptotic limit of a parabolic problem in a cylindrical domain, by adding a potential that vanishes outside the limit domain. This can be seen as a parabolic version of a previous work by the first and last authors, concerning the stationary case~\cite{PaAn}. We provide a strong convergence result for the solution by use of energetic methods and $\Gamma$-convergence technics. Then, we establish an exponential decay estimate coming from an adaptation of an argument by B. Simon.
