I am a little confused. If someone with electrical experience can answer, I would appreciate it.
I have a ceiling light fixture that has space for two bulbs. It states that the wattage limit is 60W per bulb. Now with everyone using Halogen bulbs, can I place 2x 53W Halogen Bulbs - which produce the same lumens as a 75W i ncandescent bulb, or do I need to ensure that the lumen output does not exc eed that of the 60W incandescent, which would mean a 43W Halogen bulb?
I hope the question makes sense. I know that halogens produce more heat tha n incandescent, so I am not sure what the Wattage limit is about - is the t he heat that is produced, or is it about the energy that is drawn?
I would appreciate a response - dont want to take any risks, but would love to maximise the lumen output.
Please note, only Halogen or Incandescent bulbs can be used in this specifi c fitting.
Thank you in advance.
