G25 globe light bulbs with 3 1/8 inch diameter for bathrooms, marquee in clear or white versions.

This is one of those lamps which has a size which is in between the G30 and the G16.5.  This particular lamp is a version of a decorative globe and is popular in homes and buildings where the scale is smaller with most of the fixtures in use.  For most people when they have a decorative lighting situation in their residence, really like the G25 globes as an option because they give the globe decorative look without making it too  large.  Of course, there are several sizes of decorative globes which can work in almost any exposed lighting situation you may have.  Some of the sizes that are available are everything from all 1 inch globe all the way up to a 5 inch globe, the G25 is 3 1/8 inches in diameter.

There are times when people just need something that's a bit smaller, the G25 many times fits that criteria.  Common applications for these bulbs include bathroom lighting or other kinds of exposed fixtures where the bulb is a part of the decorative element.  You'll find that there are so many choices of G25 globe light bulbs, that can be a little confusing, but there are just a few things to keep in mind when trying to identify the bulb you have.  When these bulbs are labeled or coded, it refers to the number of eighths of an inch. For example, if you had a G25 globe light, the 25 would be divided by eight which would leave you 3 1/8 and that is the number of inches of the bulb diameter.  So what you have is a 3 1/8 inch globe.  Once you determine the size of the globe itself, it's very easy to determine the wattage as it's usually stamped right on the bulb itself or on the base.  The wattage is usually designated before that with something like 100G25, 60G25, 40G25 or 25G25 with a clear or frosted designation.  The G25 is easily screwed into a standard socket so it can be used in almost any fixture where you use regular incandescent bulbs.

If you are looking for ways to save energy, there are probably more choices available today to replace the G25 globe bulbs than any other decorative bulb.  If you need an energy efficient G25, the Panasonic globe compact fluorescent light bulbs are a great choice to replace higher wattage incandescent lamps and save energy.  They are slightly larger than the G25, because they are a G30, but for most applications, it won't matter.  You will find a great reduction in your electrical bill while still getting the amount of light that you want.  You can save as much as 75% in lighting energy costs while maintaining the globe shape that people like in so many lighting applications.  You can make a direct replacement and if you don't tell anyone about it, they may not notice that you're using a compact fluorescent, they're that good as a reasonable looking alternative to old, energy wasting bulbs.  Keep in mind that these also come in a full spectrum 5000K which will give the color of outdoor daylight, something that isn't completely possible in an incandescent version of the G25.

Remember that there are several wattages of G25 globe light bulbs, we describe some of the most common used in home and commercial lighting here.  We have a large inventory of incandescent  bulbs for nearly every type of light fixture in the field.  If you need help identifying a globe bulb, our customer service representatives can help you determine what you have.
