    Quartz Halogen is not going to be banned (on the list of "good" incandescent lamps), and they actually burn hotter than the old bulbs (500 degrees F).  Each one is a mini heat lamp.

      We use incandescents by our evening sitting-and-reading chairs, because the little local heat bubble they create lets us set the thermostat lower in winter (and in summer, here, you can leave lights off until late!). This sounds like a good improvement.

    •  Thanks, I'll check that out (0+ / 0-)

      My only concern is that a halogen bulb would put out too much heat, and perhaps ignite a loose feather, or something.
