Recessed Can Heat Lamps for the Bathroom?

carova_2008August 26, 2009

Has anyone used these? How do you like them?

Red or Clear bulb? Which seems to work better?

The IR Red Bowl bulbs are more intense. They cost about 3 times the price of clear. Clear is fine for lower, 8FT ceilings. Be sure you are putting them into a fixture that is designed to handle this much wattage and heat. 250 Watts is standard for these bulbs.

We had these when I lived in Florida. I put them in my house in Atlanta and they weren't warm enough. I ended up changing to the heater/fan. I guess it depends where you live and how tall your ceilings are.

The white 250 watt heat lamp is a brooder lamp, while the red infra lamp has a protective coating on the lamp to prevent shattering.
There is no recessed fixture approved for a insulated ceiling.
They both will provide additional heat on your bathroom, but will not provide adequate heating on their own.
