What is the CFL equivalent to 100W?

Know your watts and lumens (light output)

Incandescent CFL Lumens
60W 13-18W >900
75W 19-22W >1,200
100W 23-26W >1,750
150W 38-42W >2,600

How many lumens is a 40 watt CFL bulb?

Wattage to Brightness Comparison A 40 watt incandescent filament bulb produces roughly 460 lumens. An equivalent compact fluorescents (CFL) bulb in light output (lumens) should consume only around 7 watts and LEDs approximately 6 watts.

What is the wattage of a CFL light bulb?

A CFL bulb that produces the same amount of light as a 60 watt incandescent bulb (900 lumens) only uses around 15 watts of electricity. So you can put a CFL in the fixture that equals the light output of a 100 watt incandescent (1,600 lumens) and still only use 25 watts of electricity.

How many Watts Does a fluorescent light bulb use?

Around 20 to 20 watts in a fluorescent bulb is the same as 100 watts in an incandescent bulb. Differences will also occur between types and sizes of light bulbs.

What is CFL wattage?

The light source is an 11-watt compact fluorescent lamp (CFL) powered by a dc ballast with a total system wattage of 13 watts. The CFL will be turned on for eight hours of operation at night per day.

What is a CFL dimmer?

The LED/CFL dimmer, commonly referred to as a 3 way dimmer, is used for dimming LED and CFL lights. However, this will not work on panels, troffers, high bays and other fixtures that require 0-10V dimming.

Can I put a 100 watt CFL in a 60 watt socket?

For a 60-Watt fixture, you could use a 100W, 125W, or even 150W LED equivalent because they all consume under 60-Watts! That means you could use a 150W LED equivalent bulb in a 60W socket and get more than three times the brightness of your old 60-Watt incandescent bulb.

Are 100W bulbs illegal?

It is a popular misconception that 100w bulbs are illegal. There is a minimum standard in the lighting Regs. but no maximum.

How many watts is a CFL?

Compact fluorescent bulb wattage ranges from 11 to 42 watts. They use 75% less energy than the equivalent incandescent bulbs, which range between 40 and 150 watts. Some of the most common CFL wattage equivalents are 13 watt CFL (equivalent to 60 watt incandescent) and 23 watt CFL (equivalent to 100 watt incandescent).

What is a 20W CFL equivalent to?

100W incandescent
Efficiency and running costs The higher the wattage, the higher the running cost. The light output from a 20W CFL isn’t the same as that from a 20W incandescent. Rather, a 20W CFL would be the equivalent of a 100W incandescent (roughly 20%).

Can you put a 75 watt bulb in a 100 watt socket?

If your fixture is rated to accept 60 Watts, you can safely use 75W, 100W, or even 125W equal bulbs (which all draw less than 50 Watts of power) instead.

What is a 13W CFL equivalent to?

Which is better for the environment led or CFL?

This equivalence is often the most difficult and tricky point to understand since, it is usually not written in the lights’ boxes or prospects. We have loved CFL and their efficiency for many years already and they have saved us tons of energy and money but, the LED era is here and that means more savings and no toxic substances around us.

What’s the life expectancy of a CFL bulb?

The next best are CFL bulbs which bring in a respectable 8,000 hours of average life expectancy. Keep in mind, most tests are based on a running time of 3 hours per day. The past year has been unique. This is an understatement of epic proportions.
