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 bulbs are great. Not the super high wattage 250, which are overkill and more expensive to run. Only been using them for two weeks for chicks in brooder, but flawless so far!

Thus far great. Been using these in our chicken coop to keep the waterer frost-free and the eggs unfrozen. Works great and I think it'll last for a lot longer than the common bulbs that I have to replace every season when the bulb falls away in my hand.
By far the most robust bulb I seen in awhile. You have to be careful not to over torque them into the base because they seem so strong (and heavy) that you want to crank them down tight. But really, a great product.

I spent the extra money on these supposedly better lamp bulbs hoping for safety in several areas as advertised. During the third night I used them to transition two motherless kids from my house to the barn the first bulb burned out. I expect Premier will replace them as a couple other people have mentioned, and fortunately my kids were OK, but the failure of this product endangered my vulnerable animals. I am not happy and not sure whether to trust them again.

Bulbs still going after a couple of kidding seasons.

I love these heating lamps. They are so safe and durable. I love that you can purchase replacement parts if the nannies get to them by accident.
