    I've been out of town for a few days and got home today to find that 2 of the 3 light bulbs were out in my incubator. Its in my garage and takes at least 2 to hold temp. I put brand new GE bulbs in before I left to avoid this problem. I went ahead and ordered a GQF element and cant wait to get it installed. Does anybody know if a heating element will produce more heat than bulbs of the same wattage? I am an electrician and should know, but I dont.
