    Should the 161 be wired on its own circuit?

    Does the 161 heater need to be on its own 15 or 20A circuit? Or, how many other fixtures can we have on 1 circuit? We'll have the ZB110, a vanity light (currently 4 CFLs which will be retrofitted with LEDs), and this. Any concerns about the current draw?

    If my math's right, at 250W and 120V, the current draw should be something like 2-3A, correct?

    Thanks.

    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.
