Has anyone used a ceramic heat emitter instead of, or with, a red bulb for heat? Any reason not to? My situation is this: I have a 250 watt brooder bulb which is just too hot. My poor chicks stayed way out away from it. I cant lift it any higher or it becomes a fire hazard in my kids room (where the chicks are). I also have a 25 watt red bulb- using that now, but am afraid it doesnt put out enough heat. I have plenty CHEs here (from the reptiles). So, I added one next to my 25 watt bulb. Everyone looks cozy now-not too close, not spaced out, looking hot. I would think that the CHE lasts longer than the bulb and doesnt throw out bright light all night. Thats two bonuses, wondering if there are any reason not to use them.
