    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model 161 single bulb heat lamp. There is no problem with placing a regular light bulb in this unit instead of a heat lamp. Since the bulb opening in the grille is larger than a typical bulb, we would suggest still using a BR40 size bulb. You can get those in various wattages and you would probably want to get a flood lamp.

    Thank you for your question on the model 161 single heat lamp. Since the only heat produced with this model would be from the bulb, the BTU rating would be on the bulb itself.

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model 163 dual radiant heat lamp. U.L. laboratories do not list any heaters for installation above a tub or shower area. All heaters need to be outside the footprint of the tub or shower.

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model 163 dual radiant heat lamp. The model 163 will need two switches for independent operation of the two lamps. You can use standard switches, timers or a single switch to operate both lamps at the same time.
