What are the wattages of lights in your house/apartment?

What are the wattages of lights in your house/apartment?



Living Room

Front entry light at bottom of staircase - 200 Watt clear bulb in open fixture. Sometimes I put a 300 in.
Above large window - 2 40 Watt linear fluorescent lights
Below the same window - 4 40 Watt linear fluorescent lights for lighting cacti. Each is about half as bright as the ones above.
Floor lamp - One central 27 Watt compact fluorescent light(equivalent to 100 Watt incandescent). Two peripheral 15 Watt lights.
Mantle - 15W linear fluorescent light

Dining Room

Over the table - Fixture with four lights totalling 255 Watts. Dimmable.
Above window - 3 20 Watt linear fluorescent lights

Kitchen

Central light - 4 15 Watt linear fluorescent lights
Above sink - 30W linear fluorescent light
Stove light - Linear fluorescent light, not sure of wattage. Not very bright.

My bedroom

Ceiling light - 42W(150 equiv.) compact fluorescent light. I want to get one that's brighter and less yellow.
By door - 2 lamps with 4 independent lightbulbs - 25W, 40W, 60W, and 100W
On bookcase by bed - One standard lamp and one small clamp-lamp. 15W and 7.5W.

I have no clue...

If a light bulb burns out, I take it out, check the wattage, and head to Wally World for a replacement.

I don't know the wattages of our bulbs, but I know ALL my boyfriend will let us use are those "Reveal" light bulbs that create white light rather than yellow like most bulbs. They're nice and very bright. He likes them especially because he is a photographer and lighting is important to him.

I wouldn't really have a clue either...

BUT I had to buy a new light bulb for the lamp in my room the other day and I know it's 60 watts.

Blinkin' Cat, you crack me up!! It's amusing to see what new from-left-field stream of consciousness poll or question you come up with.

Generally we have 100 watt bulbs, a couple 60 watts and 1 lamp with a 40 watt.

40w & 60w, and super dark blinds.

I don't have to dust as often that way

We mostly have the energy efficient ones--they are 13 watts put put out the equivalent of 100 watt normal bulbs.

I used to think the same thing - but then I guessed Blinkin's probably around a lot of other forums, and picks them up randomly from there.

I know, and that's cool. Thread starters keep the forum moving and active, and I'm all for that, since I start very few threads myself. Most of them are funny. OTOH, sometimes there's seriously inane ones, like this lightbulb one, or the coffee in bathtub one, . It's still all good.

Back on topic, I think I replaced the 40 watt with a 60 watt, so no 40s in the house. I actually went around the house checking for it, thanks a LOT, Blinkin' Cat! Reminds me, running low, need to buy more bulbs.

We just replaced all the ones at home with the super efficent ones (approx 13 watts). I like them except they start out dull and seem to have to work up to full power!
