The Westinghouse Lighting 250-Watt Soft Glass Heat Bulb is a cost-effective choice to keep your animals warm in the winter during cold nights or to heat certain areas of your home or a building.
Features of the Westinghouse Lighting 250-Watt Soft Glass Heat Bulb
The bulb is an R40 infrared heat light bulb and is available in a clear or red finish. The infrared bulb will emit heat that can be absorbed by surrounding objects, animals, or people. You can choose whether the clear or red finish would be best for your situation.
These bulbs are non-stick and have a coated base to prevent the corrosion of the sockets in the light fixture. This is important because the heat bulb, the light fixture, or both could fail if corrosion on the sockets occurs, and then one or both could need to be replaced. Because this bulb has a coated base, you can depend on it to last up to an average of 5000 rated hours. There is no need for you to worry about corrosion shortening the life of the bulb.
These heat bulbs operate at extremely HOT temperatures, so be careful when handling or replacing them. The 2 pack will ensure that you have a backup bulb for when the first one needs to be replaced.
