    As well as what if any are the clearances to combustibles (wood, insulation, electrical wires, etc.)

    I am installing an independent 110 cfm fan
    and do not wish to use a heat lamp with a fan.

    My concern is how hot will an unventilated heat lamp get?

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on model 163 dual radiant heat lamp. The fan inside the 163 is a cooling fan only and is internally wired to come on when the heat lamp is turned on. The fan must be used with the 163 and cannot be disconnected. The unit is IC rated and the housing can come in direct contact with the joist and insulation. Please contact the Technical Service Department at 800-637-1453 if you need further assistance.

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model 161 single radiant heat lamp. Since the only heat from this unit is radiated from the bulb, we would not recommend installing this unit in a ceiling over eight feet tall.
