    Maximum bulb wattage question

    I have a light fixture that says it can use a 60-watt maximum bulb. It seems that a typical 13W CFL is the equivalent of 60 watts of incandescent light. What is the maximum bulb wattage I can use if I install a CFL bulb? Thank you.

    It would be still 60 watts as wattage is a power rating not light output, lumens is light output. you can increase the comparable lumens just do not exceed the the 60 watt maximum power rating.
