    Can you replace a 12V bulb with a 24V bulb?

    Grote's Answer

    Since the amperage goes down when voltage goes up, it typically OK to change a lamp to accommodate a 24V bulb as far as the wiring is concerned. However, the 24V bulb will generate more heat and there is the potential the lens or housing designed and tested for the 12V bulb, may not withstand the extra heat.
