I need a heat source I can feel comfortable leaving on while I am at work, and lamps fit this bill better than most space heaters, but again, I don't know anything about the health effects. I know lamps are used for small animals, and my vet said they should be OK. Based on the lights effects on my own eyes, I am not so sure.
Forced hot air dries out their skin, and oil filled radiators seem like a good option, but they are not directional, more for heating a whole room. I need to be economical and contain the warmth just where the pigs need it, which heat lamps would be great for. Does anyone have experience with lamps? I would appreciate any thoughts on heating solutions or referrals to posted info on such.

How cold do you expect it to get where the pigs are?
