Heat lamps

Postby DiXX » Tue May 21, 2019 8:29 am

I’m really struggling here guys. I have a halogen 75w basking bulb set to 102 degrees on the thermostat but I can keep my hand under the lamp without getting hot. Surely this isn’t right ? The etekcity infrared thermometer shows 104 and the dial thermometer inside shows 90 and the digital thermometer shows 99.1 but it still don’t seem warm enough to me. Dobby never sits on her log but lays underneath or in the cooler end. She only poops when in bath and never in her Viv and rarely eats anything except 3-5 locusts every few days. Vet says she’s fine. Any ideas would be great

Do you have a picture of the setup?

Which ir gun are you using?

102 wont really feel hot on your hand, but you should still feel the warmth.

The uv is the new t5 d3 arcadia 14% The bulb is Arcadia halogen 75w basking bulb. And the set up is pictured below and ir gun Dobby is sat on log now as she’s been outside in sunshine for a while. I put her on log , I do happen to think I was worrying too much. As it’s fairly warm here in England today and aimed the ir at pavement and was 92f and I could stand on it barefoot. I’m just a born worrier. :) [Click image to enlarge]
