What are halogen heaters?
Halogen heaters are heaters that incorporate the halogen element within their heating lamp and bulb. However the confusion arises because the halogen in the halogen lamps are not the actual heating element.
The reason they are called halogen heaters is because within the halogen lamps, halogen gases are used to increase the brightness of the bulbs and also to increase its lifespan. The halogen also prevents the bulbs from darkening and so the halogen lamps are safe to operate at higher temperatures, compared with lamps that do not use halogen gas.
