Electrical Question from Ryan about Other Electrical Issue
Background: Ryan, a Homeowner from Minneapolis, MN
[ad#block]Question: Recommend type B 60 Watt bulbs, can I use a type A bulb instead?
Thanks for your electrical question Ryan. The Type A Bulb is the most standard size, that being a larger base than a Type B. The Type B isÂ also known asÂ a Candelabra base or a Chandelier Type Lamp because it is most commonly used in chandelier fixtures. That being the case, there are socket adapters to allow a Type B Lamp to be used in a Type A Socket, but not for a Type A bulb to be used in a Type B Socket.
