Just look

Can-i-put-a-regular-light-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.... Cfl and incandescent bulbs may get overheated and that may lead to the heat being trapped inside the bulb. this will cause the bulb to explode, eventually resulting in a fire breakout or some defect in the electronic circuit in which the light bulbs are connected., 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., 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....

To ask this question another way, “what is the highest wattage light i can safely put in my light fixture?” in other words, this isn’t about the physical size of the light bulb. as far as that goes, any bulb that will physically fit in the fixture is probably safe to install in it., infrared heat lamps an infrared heat lamp is a lamp that uses a special form of incandescent light bulb primarily for the purposes of heat production rather than to generate light. these lamps do produce some light, but most of the energy that they consume is directed towards heating the room. the incandescent bulb or […].

From the point of view of the *fixture*, the limit is the number of watts the bulbs consume, and the directly related amount of heat those bulbs put out. so putting a 100w led into a fixture rated 100w is fine (again, from the fixture’s point of v...
