The 4 60W if the 240 is a heat lamp the difference in what the bulbs use doesn't matter to what you will have to spend extra to cool the room down!

Does it not use more energy to actually turn on a light then maintain its luminescence? If that's true, then turning on FOUR bulbs would use more energy than ONE bulb.

Stumbled on this topic! Stumped too.
Some use less energy to turn on than othes, depends how long you leave them on too.
