light wattage question

Recommended Posts

Hi guys

just a simple question for you re wattage -

I have a light in my garage. On the bit which the bulb screws into it says 1500watts. There is no wattage written on the globe itself. I dont need or want 1500w worth of light.

Q- Can i screw a 400 watt globe into this fitting without fear of shorting or any kind of crisis? Or is it best to buy a whole new fitting designed for 400w?
