Can-i-put-a-regular-bulb-in-a-heat-lamp, you can not use a regular light bulb in a self ballasted lamp because the lamp is some type of florescent light and a regular ligh bulb is incandescent. the ballast itself will tell you what kind.... This site might help you. re: can you take out a regular light bulb and put in a heat lamp like you see in hotels and just screw it in? i wanted to know if you could take out a regular light bulb and screw in one of those red heat lamps that you see in hotels that work off the timer. just want something to put a touch of heat in bathroom during showers and things like that., if you don't mind me asking, why do you want to put an infrared heat bulb into a desk lamp anyway? i work at an animal rescue centre and we use those infrared and standard 250w heat bulbs a lot, and believe me they get extremely hot, we use special heat lamps to hold the bulbs as these use ceramic fittings and heat resistant fittings so they don't cause any damage..
Hi, realise that this is an old thread but... i'd also like to replace the heat bulbs in the ixl tastic with normal bulbs. we don' need for half the year, they tend to get left on & use a lot of power (has 4 lamps in the one fitting)., i have tried to buy heat bulbs before, and it is super confusing. is there a good bulb (not mercury vapor) that can be used for russians? i have heard that you can use regular flood bulbs as a heat lamp..
As everyone else has said, an led bulb will not replace a heat lamp because it does not produce the high levels of ir that produce the feeling of radiant heat. even if you find an ir emitting led, it is not intended to produce enough ir to be felt..., no, you always need to use a light bulb or heating bulb from a reptile company. other bulbs don't have a wax sheet of sorts covering the bulb. the sheet keeps the light from blinding or hurting your lizard. just get a new one for your babies sake!!.
