100w or 160w Mercury vapour bulb

Post by andrewmooney » 04 Apr 2017, 14:30

Hi,

We've ordered a 4ft x 2ft table and I'm about to order the combi bulb but I don't know which is most appropriate, 100w of 160w. The table will be in our lounge so it's not a particularly cold room. What would you recommend?

100 would be more than sufficient for that size table. A 160 is more suitable to a much greater area for example, in a shed where there is a larger area to heat up.
