Will a 20 amp fuse hold two 1000 watt lights
 
Im trying to run 2 1000 watt lights on a 20 amp fuse is it possible or will the fuse blow and is it a fire hazard

What in the world are you using a 1000 watt light for? Go outside and have someone turn that light off and on and see how fast that meter spins.
That one light is more then all the lights in my house.

If you do the math, 2000 over 115 volts you get 17.39 amps. That's getting close to that 20 amp breaker. If you have anything plugged into the same circuit, you could blow it.

I'll bet you can warm the room up with those two bulbs.

I wonder what's in the pots?:rolleyes:
