Can I mix LED bulbs with regular bulbs in a set of track lights? Answered

I put track lights in my kitchen several years ago. I recently found some LED bulbs but they cost around $15-30 each. Can I mix different bulbs in track set?...$60.00 is a little steep. I'm hoping for less light / heat output.


sure. 15-30USD each seems a little expensive to us

As iPodGuy said, "Yeah, you can do that." Each bulb is powered in parallel (which is why only the burned-out one goes dark :-), so you can substitute any of them without affecting the others. As you replace each one LED or CFL, the total power drawn will be reduced.

Yeah, you can do that. I did something like that a few years ago with those CF bulbs. When an incandescent burned out, I replaced it with a CF. Works on the same principal.
