Energy-Star fixture and bulb wattage?
Hello all -
I purchased a flush-mount ceiling fixture for my son's walk-in closet, and the fixture is Energy-Star rated and uses the GU24 bulb. The manufacturer's website says to use a 18W GU24 fluorescent in the fixture.
Can I use a higher-wattage bulb in the fixture if we want a little more light in there? The fixture is totally enclosed (flush-mount ceiling), but it is in a closet with a motion-detector switch, so it should never be on more than 30 minutes at a time, at most.
Here is the fixture, in case anyone is interested.
