One of the more unusual lamps used today are the BR25 flood light bulbs.
While they're not unusual from the standpoint of what they look like, it's just
that the size is special. These flood
light bulbs are small enough to use in almost any recessed or track lighting
fixture and are slightly smaller across the face than the BR30 flood.
Sometimes it's just the only thing that will fit in certain fixtures. The
most common wattage is the 75 or 100 watt BR25 sometimes also called the 75BR25
or 100BR25 flood light. They fit almost anywhere, including the eyeball fixtures which can turn in almost any direction. When it comes to
lighting up a home, office or retail store, these incandescent light
bulbs have a special size which is usually called for in certain brands of track
Some people don't like them because they sometimes have a shorter life, but that
is only true in some cases. When compared to regular incandescent lighting,
longer lasting than the store bought kind because they are 130 volt if you
choose them from our store that way.
The range of wattages are good in the BR25 flood light bulbs. They come in 75 or 100 watts and most fixtures require a limit of
with the BR25. For most installations, they are used in recessed lighting
with a 4 inch or 3 1/2 opening and can be dimmed with a standard incandescent dimmer.
In many types of lighting applications, the dimming capability is what makes it
a wonderful choice for dining rooms, kitchens or high ceiling lighting for
large rooms. The places where the BR25 flood light can be used are endless and have
probably been used in ways it was never intended. If you have track
lighting, then it probably makes sense to upgrade to a halogen PAR20 which will
give you more light with a greater variety of beam patterns. The BR25 is
sold in a flood or spot. The spot will provide a tighter beam for areas
where you want a focused light. The BR25 is 3.1 inches across the face if
you're measuring it for identification purposes.
With the advent of higher electrical costs, many businesses are looking for ways
to save energy with lighting. Obviously, compact fluorescent flood light bulbs
are the perfect choice to replace higher wattage incandescent BR25 flood light
bulbs and save
energy. Just look for areas
where you might use BR25 incandescent light bulbs and find the right replacement on
our web site. You might need to choose a PAR20 halogen or an R20 compact
fluorescent. In either case, you will find a great reduction in your electrical bill
while still getting the amount of light that you want. Keep an eye out for
electric utility rebates in your area which might be available for compact
fluorescent flood light bulbs. This is more true in commercial lighting than it
is for residential as they are a larger user of electricity during the day or
high demand times. When replacing your outdated incandescent with compact
fluorescent, make sure that the light is not on a dimmer. Putting non-dimmable
fluorescent on a dimming circuit could cause a fire. We have the dimming compact
fluorescent bulbs also, so you'll need to ask for them specifically. Please note that
your energy savings can be very significant when changing from incandescent
flood lights to fluorescent flood lights over almost any other kind of retrofit.
