ok thanks for the advice I will look into the infrared ones,
we have been using a heat lamp for several years.
I have heard that some heat lamps people do not have them secured very well,
or just hanging and then they fall
I will take a pic of mine,
it just keeps the coup above freezing when it is really cold out
and it is not on all the time,
just for a couple of hrs.
so we will see, what kind of light bulb would you use cause the reg light bulbs are too bright, and they get hot too.
cfL's I don't fully trust we had some in our garage and they were started to turn black at the base we got those out of there.
