Can I use a 40 watt LED bulb in a 25 watt lamp?

customers ask is: “Can I use an LED that has a higher wattage equivalent than my fixture allows?” The simple answer is yes, as long as the LED bulb uses less wattage than your fixture.

Are compact fluorescent lightbulbs dangerous?

Compact fluorescent light bulbs are dangerous in that they cause electric smog or Dirty Electricity to be emitted by the electrical wiring that they are connected to. This Dirty Electricity is a form of EMF Radiation that independent peer reviewed scientific studies have linked to things like cancer, brain tumors and male infertility.

What is the equivalent wattage for LED bulbs?

Most LED light bulb manufacturers label the wattage equivalent to that of an incandescent bulb to make it easier for consumers to choose the correct light bulb for their specific lighting needs. For instance, if a cool white LED bulb has the wattage equivalency of a 60 watt incandescent bulb, the LED light may appear brighter than the incandescent because of the color of light it emits.

How many Watts Does a compact fluorescent light bulb use?

For lumens in 500 to 600 range, it takes about 55 watts for an incandescent bulb to operate, while it takes only 10 watts for a fluorescent light. A 75-watt energy use on an incandescent light would only need to be 11 to 15 watts on a fluorescent light.

What does the ballast do in a fluorescent light fixture?

In a fluorescent lighting system, the ballast regulates the current to the lamps and provides sufficient voltage to start the lamps. Without a ballast to limit its current, a fluorescent lamp connected directly to a high voltage power source would rapidly and uncontrollably increase its current draw.
