True red glass, not painted or coated! Zoo Med’s spot reflector focuses more heat into your enclosure and minimizes nighttime glare. Ideal 24 hour heat source for all types of reptiles, amphibians, birds or small animals. Very little visible light provided so as not to disturb your animal’s sleep patterns. Excellent for nocturnal viewing of all types of captive animals.
Q: How can I get the maximum out of a lamp? A: Minimizing handling: lamps that get moved or vibrated burn out quickly. Make sure that the fixture isn’t being moved regularly. It is best to use a quality ceramic socket, not a plastic socket. You can check your fixture by unplugging it and looking at the metal tab in the center – where the bulb screws in. This tab can be pulled slightly forward to ensure that it makes a good contact with the bulb. FAQ: Q: Does this lamp emit UVA? A: No. This lamp is for heat and nighttime viewing of animals only. FAQ: Q: Can I use a rheostat/thermostat with the Ceramic Heat Emitter? A: Yes! A Thermostat or rheostat can be used to control the heat output of this heater.
