Heat Lamp Bulbs
Smooth glass infrared bulbs for use in heat lamps. (2) bulbs per package.
Heat Lamp Bulbs that last!
- Red or clear, 175 watt and 250 watt options
- “Never-loose” base! (See details below.)
- Provides 6 months of non-stop life
If a “never-loose” base becomes loose or broken, we'll replace it for FREE!
- The base breaks away from the glass bulb because the high temperature causes the cheap adhesive to degrade.
- The glass degrades (due to the heat).
- Both glass and filament are so fragile that minimal impact shatters them.
Premier’s Smooth Glass Infrared Bulbs, by intent and design, address all 3 of these issues. When used properly with a Prima Heat Lamp, we guarantee:
- 6-month non-stop life.
- “Never-loose” base! Our bulbs don’t use cement adhesive. Instead, the base screws into the bulb. A weld of solder holds the base onto the threads. In other bulbs, heat can cause the cement to lose its adhesive property. The base then breaks away from the bulb.
If a never-loose base ever becomes loose under normal use, we will replace at no cost! Contact us for FREE replacement.
- 175 watt or 250 watt
- Red or clear smooth glass
- Sold/priced in packages of two
- Turn off (unplug) heat lamps when not in use.
- Use a ThermoCube to turn the lamp on/off based on ambient temperature.
- Carry the lamps with care. This reduces damage to the bulb. Don’t carry multiple lamps by the cord allowing them to “bang around.”
- Don’t hose off or power-wash the lamp when the bulb is in place.
- Don’t enclose the lamp. Heat will build up and degrade both the lamp and the bulb.
- To reduce pecking among your birds, use a red colored bulb.
Mild deformation due to over-tightening makes it difficult to screw bulbs in and out of the fixture. Major deformation due to over-tightening can flatten the metal so much that the bulb can actually fall out.
Never lay a heat lamp (of any make or model) on straw or any other flammable surface—for any length of time.
Do NOT use heat lamps in confined spaces or barrels for warming livestock. The heat needs to be able to move away from the lamp.
It’s important to prevent adult animals from abusing (bashing, butting, etc.) the lamp fixture. When this happens, the bulb and fixture are at risk of damage. In mixed pens with mothers and babies, we take extra steps to protect the lamps from the adults (e.g. creep pens and/or lamp guards).
Pressed glass (PAR) bulbs are stronger, but because of their weight, they are more prone to separating from the base when repeated jostling occurs. Smooth glass bulbs shatter more easily when jostled, but are less likely to separate from the base.

These heat lamp bulbs are very durable even when the lamp fixture is subjected to frequent “bumps” by active lambs or ewes.

So far these bulbs are much better than the previous ones I would get from my local Co-Op that would break after they were unplugged the first time. The lamp from Premier has been moved 3 times with it being unplugged and it’s not fazed, which was so important to me. A friend of mine recommended these as being reliable and I’m letting the test of time determine if they are.

These are literally the best heat lamp bulbs! Any others I have bought have blown within a week of putting them in. I have yet to have this bulb go out and 1 has been in for 5 months and on 24/7.

Great bulbs. I feel they work the best when it’s really cold. I use 175 watt when it’s cold, but not extremely cold. I use these in the heated barrels I make for my goat kids. 175 watt is Premier’s recommended bulb and I agree. The 250 watt I would only use in really cold weather.

I purchased the clear heat lamp bulbs for the Premier 1 heat lamps. I’ve found when I use the lamps from other stores the whole lamp got hot, when I use the Premier 1 bulbs the lamps do not get as hot. They only get warm on the top and can leave my hand on the top.
