Can-you-put-heat-lamp-bulb-regular-socket, you sure can, it's been done, and the bathroom didn't blow up, the bathroom was just extremely bright some sockets, though, do have a maximum wattage and/or a maximum heat tolerance that needs to .... You should be able to use a self ballasted lamp in a regular socket safely as long as you do not exceed the wattage recommendations of the fixture., i have a recessed light fixture outside my shower that holds a reflector type bulb. it's incandescent as far as i can tell and i have no idea how many watts it is..

Good afternoon all, joseph here today to talk about the type of light bulb that gets a lot of use this time of year...the heat lamp light bulb., 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..

Heat lamps are a great example of how light bulbs can be used in special applications to fill a specific need through their infrared (ir) properties. they are referred to as "infrared" because the heat is invisible and "below" the red that the human eye can see. many people ask us if there is really a difference between red and clear lenses?
