In today's lighting world, there are many applications where both light and heat are required. In these instances, a special type of bulb called a heat lamp bulb is used. Heat lamp bulbs are incandescent bulbs that are designed for the primary purpose of emitting heat, but can also emit significant light where needed. In principle, heat lamps work the same way as regular incandescent bulbs, but they produce more infrared radiation, which gives them their unique heating properties. Heat lamps are used in a number of environments where heat production is of primary importance, including food production settings, animal enclosures, laboratories, and bathrooms. In settings where both light and heat are needed, frosted/clear heat lamp bulbs are used. In settings where heat and darkness are needed (such as animal enclosures), red heat lamp bulbs are used.
