Unclear on the concept

I am so mad at myself for forgetting to take a photograph of this.
Earlier this week I spent a few days at the famed Claremont Resort and Spa in Berkeley, California.  I was there for the Hot Topics in Parallelism workshop, but that isn’t the point.
It used to be that in bathrooms, one had a “heat lamp.” This was a dull red PAR type bulb in a ceiling fixture, typically with a twist knob timer.  You turn it on and it runs for 10 minutes or whatever while you take a shower and dry off.
Now I know that California is Eco-Groovy, and Berkeley is about the epicenter of Eco Groovyness, but at the Claremont, they have replaced the bathroom heat lamps with, … wait for it… compact fluorescent bulbs.
They still have the 10 minute twist knob timers and everything.
