Can I use the rheostat/thermostat with a Reptisun, Avian Sun or Power Sun UV?
These lamps need specific line voltages; they cannot be used with dimmers/rheostats.
How can I get the maximum out of a lamp?
Minimizing handling: lamps that get moved or vibrated burn out quickly. Make sure that the fixture isnt being moved regularly. It is best to use a quality ceramic socket, not a plastic socket. You can check your fixture by unplugging it and looking at the metal tab in the center – where the bulb screws in. This tab can be pulled slightly forward to ensure that it makes a good contact with the bulb.
Does this lamp emit UVB?
Yes! This lamp provides the full visible spectrum as well as UVA and UVB. What is UVB and why does my reptile need it?
