Using a light bulb for heat is a bad idea. No safety. A neighbor burned his garage down using a light bulb to heat the dog's bed.

I'd like to know more detail about this one. I suspect 100W bulb to keep something from freezing is a far cry from what was "probably" some kind of heat lamp to keep a dog warm.

This was two 100W light bulbs placed under the dog bed (enclosed wood frame). No thermostat to shut it down if it got too hot in the enclosed space.

OK. Any light you use needs to be kept a foot or so away from anything combustible. But lots of people do the light bulb trick with no problems. I guess anyone can do something stupid.

Who knows! Maybe a mouse built a nest under that dog bed. That would light up pretty easily!
