I'm not sure if its Aust wide, but in SA we have had the normal light globes banned and replaced with a similar globe that is so called energy saving. Will these give off the same amount of heat as the older ones?

i don't think so, i thought that took Longer to heat up an where Frosted. and yes it Australia Wide but they aren't Banned i don't think just Know Longer Made.

they can cost a fair bit, i have never used one of these Infra Red lights, but someone on here could have.
http://www.brookfieldpoultryequipment.com/products.php?id=410&r=55 a Infra Red Bulb from Brook filed Poultry Supplies this is a Edison Bulb Fitting.
http://www.brookfieldpoultryequipment.com/products.php?id=185&r=55 Turnocks Heat Lamp Holders can be used with the above blubs.


Then they have these types of bulbs.

I use the Pandoral ceramic globes. They are excellent, never had one fail yet.

Just a word of warning. Make sure you use the ceramic lamp holders, do not use these globes in a plastic holder (socket).

this is a government initiative :hmmm: they stopped the importation of incandesant globes last year.
As far as I know the are no longer allowed to be sold after March 2010 although this date seeems to constantly
change. The new fluro globes are not supposed to get as hot although in my experience they are hot to touch
if they have been switched on for a while.

edited to say this is australia wide :)

The reason why the fluros are more efficient is that they give off very little heat. I like Jocler use ceramic heaters inconjunction with time switched flouros. The ceramics provide the heat, and the flouros the time controlled light.

Hi a local retravision near where I'm at stock piled incandesant bulbs for local who incubate their own eggs
I I did watch a show a while back Aussie show stating that if one of these new energy saver bulbs break they recommend people leaving the room because of the mecury content in them
may save on energy but the murcury is more than the safe level a person can have in their system.
Heck we save on the power bill but the doctors bill can run a little higher :shock: :shock:
Sorry it's gone off topic :oops:

Hi
I did just post this elsewhere but thought that I might pop it on this thread too.....Lots of local businesses donate little bits to help us raise funds for the work that we do ..

http://www.serendipityfarmlivestockrescue.com

I have been donated lots of the old type lightbulbs.
I will test them and will sell them for $5 a dozen.
Contact me on serendipity_farm@bigpond.com
Thanks
Abbie

hi i use the infra red reptile lights and would swear by them ive lost less chicks this year from being squashed than last year under the old light globes
i find them relatively cheap as the globes last much longer than the old light globes however you will have to change the fitting in ur old brooders or else by the cone that holds the light and radiates the heat down (thats what i do)

Hi there,

I posted the below in this thread viewtopic.php?f=6&t=7978461

I've just used these ones in the incubator I just used

they were the only ones at the supermarket close to old school bulbs so I thought I'd give them a try. I have two of these which are working fine. The lower ones (equal to 40w were no good) They say they last two years based on a lifetime of 2000 hours, not sure how the constant turning on and off in the incubator will impact this

they seem to be working fine in the incubator I assume this would work in the brooder as well?? I think Denis mentioned that they were halogen?? I will be building my brooder this weekend but I got two free heat bulbs with the ceramic light holders/fittings I bought on ebay for the incubator I built so will use them for the meantime. Only $10 each with free lights which I thought was pretty good

In Adelaide you can buy the Panderol globes from the company linked in this post
viewtopic.php?f=6&t=7977909

The globes were $25.00 incl gst for 150w units, and the service is very freindly.
I am not sure if they do mail order shipping but worth a try.

I got the ceramic bulb holders from PR electrical wholesalers for $6.00 each, interstaters should be able to locate a similar wholesaler service locally.

I am going to try these in a bator as well as using for brooding.

Regards
Trev
