Can I use a 23 watt flourescent bulb in a small lamp made for a 40 watt incandescent bulb?
Then, I started wondering if I might be running a fire risk anyway.
Anyone have any idea about this? Is it safe? How does the heat output compare? Flourescent is more efficient than incandescent, and if a 40 watt incadescent is ok, then a 23 flourescent should be too, no?
I'm kind of sure about this, but I'd rather pick other minds than start an electric or lamp shade fire in my house.
