#### Is fluorescent the same as incandescent?

When it comes to a traditional incandescent light bulb, electricity runs through a wire inside the bulb and heats it up. When it’s hot enough, it glows. A fluorescent light bulb uses gas inside the bulb to light up: when electricity runs through it, it excites a mixture of gases, which are transformed into light.

Can I use a 25 watt bulb in a 20 watt lamp?

3 Answers. Yes, that’s fine. The ‘maximum wattage’ rating listed on a light fixture is actual watts, not incandescent-equivalent-watts.

What happens if I put a 60-watt bulb in a 25 watt socket?

Using a light bulb with too high of wattage can lead to overheating of the light bulb. This heat can melt the light socket as well as the insulation of the wires. Once that happens, you put yourself at risk of arc faults, and this is something that could even lead to property fires.

## How many watts does an incandescent light bulb have?

Equivalent Wattages and Light Output of Incandescent, CFL, and LED Bulbs Light Output LEDs CFLs Incandescents 750-900 6-8 13-18 60 1100-1300 9-13 18-22 75-100 1600-1800 16-20 23-30 100 2600-2800 25-28 30-55 150

### What is a 25 watt LED bulb equivalent to?

Converting Your Light Bulbs: Incandescent/Halogen Wattage Lumens LED or CFL Wattage 25 250 4-9 40 450 9-13 60 800 13-15 75 1110 18-25

#### Which is more efficient LED or incandescent light bulbs?

Also, because they are 90% more efficient than incandescent bulbs and last 10 times longer than CFLs, the frequency of changing LED bulbs is greatly reduced. Designed to replace incandescent candelabra bulbs, these flame tip LEDs deliver the equivalent light of 25 – 35 watt incandescent while only drawing 3.5 watts of electricity.

Which is better a CFL bulb or an incandescent bulb?

In general, a simple rule to follow to replace an incandescent with an equivalent in light output CFL bulb is to select the CFL bulb that has 1/4 watts compared with the replaced incandescent bulb. For example, a correct replacement for a 60w incandescent bulb would be a 15 watt CFL bulb (60 * 1/4 = 15).
