Needs to be incandescent I believe. LED are energy efficient and don’t give out heat.
That's what I thought too, not giving off heat.
However, incandescent are almost extinct or is that just the typical house bulbs that will no longer be incandescent, do you know?

Are you in Abington UK?
If so you'll find it hard to get incandescent lamps now unless somewhere has old stock.
You can try Amazon but if all else fails Arcadia do basking solar flood bulbs from 50 - 150 w depending on the size of your enclosure.
https://www.reptiles.swelluk.com/arcadia-basking-solar-flood/ sell them from about £3 - £5.
