BR30 flood light bulbs for longer life used in recessed and track lighting. Brands like Sylvania, GE or Westinghouse.

One of the most widely used lamps today are the ones that have been used for a few decades, the BR30 flood light bulbs.  These flood light bulbs are small enough to use in almost any recessed or track lighting fixture.  It's not necessarily the best lamp to use in most cases, but the cost is generally very low which makes them popular.  The most common wattage is the 65 watt BR30 sometimes also called the 65BR30 flood light.  They can be used in recessed or track lighting of almost any size.  This includes 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 tend to be the ones chosen for recessed cans or track lighting because that's usually what a contractor might put in for the initial installation.  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, ours are longer lasting than the store bought kind making them a perfect choice for almost any type of lighting. There are several kinds of incandescent flood types which include the regular household base, R20, R30 and R40 sizes to replace almost any flood light you may be using now. The larger R40 5 inch size is also a very common light, but has been generally phased out of many new installations because of energy efficiency concerns.

The range of wattages are plentiful in the BR30 flood light bulbs. They come in 50, 65, 75, 85 or 100 watts and most fixtures require a limit of 75 watts with the BR30.  For most installations, they are used in recessed lighting with a 6 inch 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 BR30 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 PAR30 which will give you more light with a greater variety of beam patterns.  The BR30 is usually a flood or spot.  The spot will provide a tighter beam for areas where you want a focused light.  Once again, if this is something you're considering, then perhaps the halogen PAR30 might be the better choice.

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 BR30 flood light bulbs and save energy.  Just look for areas where you might use BR30 incandescent light bulbs and find the right replacement on our web site.  The R30 has a diameter of 3 3/4" inches across the face of the reflector.  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.

Remember that there are many types of incandescent flood bulbs, we describe some of the most common used in home and commercial lighting here.  Keep in mind that we also stock all the larger incandescent  and smaller types used in commercial lighting.  Whatever type you have, you will be getting a longer life incandescent than what you're used to, getting the most light you can for your money.  We have a large inventory of incandescent bulbs for nearly every type of light fixture in the field.  If you need help identifying an incandescent bulb, our customer service representatives can help you determine what you have.
