Intermediate base flood light bulbs also known as an E17 base in standard in 25 or 40 watts.

Sometimes people are a little confused when it comes to identifying bulbs for the many places they use them.  There are times the wattage is critical or the shape of the reflector matter, but almost all the time, the base is the most important.  After all, if the bulb doesn't make the connection, nothing else really matters that much.  The E17 intermediate base flood light bulbs here are a small 25 or 40 watt light which is popular furniture makers and designers.  The reason they often choose the R14 flood is because of it's very small size and short overall length as well.  The wattages are 25 or 40 watt and sometimes called the 25R14 or 40R14 flood light.  They fit almost anywhere, including the small eyeball fixtures which can turn in almost any direction used in china cabinets or curio cabinets.  The base choices are a standard medium base and the E17 base which is also known as an intermediate.  The E17 base is larger than a candelabra (E12) and smaller than a medium (E26) or household base.  This is one of the few bulbs which have this type of base variation, but sometimes people see this in exit sign lighting as well.  Because they don't run into this base very often, people sometimes think this is hard to find or unusual, and it really isn't.

For most furniture cabinets, these lamps are used in recessed lighting with a 2 inch opening and can be dimmed with a standard incandescent dimmer.  The places where the R14 flood light bulbs can be used are endless and sometimes even includes elevator lighting as a popular option.  Almost anywhere that a small flood lamp is required, the R14 flood light is a great choice.  In some cases where people want to get more light or a brighter light, then it probably makes sense to upgrade to a halogen PAR14.  The PAR14 is the same physical size as an R14 flood, but has a more intense beam and white light.  The R14 is 1.75 inches across the face if you're measuring it for identification purposes.  The overall length is 2.6 inches making it one of the most compact light sources still available today.  The common code for these lamps is something like 25R14N/FL with the "N" standing for the E17 base.  The medium base version has a slightly different code which would be something like 40R14/FL.  So whenever you see an N in the code, you know that you have the E17 intermediate base flood light.

Remember that there are a couple of types of incandescent Intermediate base flood light bulbs, we describe some of the most common used in home and commercial lighting here.  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 flood light bulbs for nearly every type of light fixture in the field.  This means that you'll never have to be without the right light bulb, especially these types of more uncommon ones.  If you need help identifying an incandescent bulb, our customer service representatives can help you determine what you have.
