The point is, if the 40 watt bulb was working most of the time and it's only really cold days and nights that he needs more heat then why risk over heating them? or waste the energy? a thermostat set at 110 degrees or whatever would keep them from cooking, otherwise you need to keep a stock of light bulbs on hand and change them every few days/weeks in the spring and fall.
