I currently have Halo H5RICAT housings with the 5001P white baffle trims throughout my house. With this trim ring and housing, I'm limited to a 50W PAR30 lamp, but I want to use something with more lumens like a 75W PAR30.
Recently I've seen these new GE energy saver halogen bulbs in the store that have similar light output as the 75W PAR30, but are only rated at 48W.
My question is, can I use these in the housing since they are 50W, or will they be a fire hazard, since they weren't tested by the manufacturer.
I would assume, they would get just as hot as the 75W PAR30, but maybe I'm mistaken.
