  1. Can I screw this light in a regular light socket?? I would assume so but I dont want to burn my house down.
  2. looks ok,check local electrical supplier, some need external balast,prob not this type though
  3. You need a ballast.
  4. id love to know too, you need a balast for that?
  5. Yea, im pretty sure you need a ballast.

    Im sure you can get a 70 watt ballast at home depot or something. its a security light. pay in cash.
  6. how exactly does a ballast work. how does it screw in etc.. do you screw the light into the ballast, then the ballast into the socket or what?
  7. Sometimes. and other times you have to assemble an electric circuit yourself. I reccomend a prebuilt system with the hood, light, and ballast. you cant really go wrong with that. i dont trust my electrical skills really.

    A ballast is used to basically kick the lamp on.
