    The heat lamps they use to keep french fries piping hot are technically light bulbs. I have one that has to be screwed in only while wearing leather gloves because the instant it makes contact, the bulb becomes hot enough to give your hand second degree burns. You can screw it in before turning it on, of course, but I am just using that an illustration of how much heat it produces. I found one in an old barn once and mistook it for a black light. Fortunately, I was wearing gloves when I screwed it in to test it.

    I use them to heat up flower boxes when the weather is extremely cold by creating a 'hot box' positioned next to the actual flower box. It requires very little time to heat up the entire flower box to a toasty environment just from a single connected vent out of the hot box.

    Yes, light bulbs contain fire which can spread heat if you leave it on too long ^_^

    Yes, all of them -- to more or less amount. Of course old tungsten filament bulbs do, but so do florescent types, and even new LED bulbs, although at a smaller amount. The higher the wattage, the higher amount of heat.

    Yes, the old filament bulbs.....90% heat and 10% light.

    They were very inefficient.

    Yes, the old tungsten bulbs pumped out a lot.
