PAR30 light bulbs from Sylvania are the quality choice for many types of track lighting and recessed lights.

For many fixtures today, the best choice for lighting has been the PAR30 light bulbs from Sylvania.  They put a halogen capsule light in a PAR30 reflector to give a directed amount of light output while delivering good beam control. The Sylvania brand also has one of the widest varieties of PAR30 lamps including many wattages and all beam spreads not typically found in most hardware stores. As a part of our complete Sylvania offering, we have all the variations they offer. PAR30 bulbs will have a choice of short neck or long neck with a medium sized reflector. The longer neck makes it possible to use these in fixtures that have some size constraints and it also looks more appealing for applications where the fixture does not cover the bulb.  These have a longer length than the short neck and each one has a certain application that is correct. Though many PAR30 lamps are similar from different manufacturers, we do believe that the Sylvania product is superior for its consistent beam pattern and superior light output. It has a full beam of light without the shadows or irregularities that some manufacturers of cheap PAR30 light bulbs might have.  As the developer of halogen lighting technology as we know it today, they are the best in delivering a quality product for either commercial use or for your home.

Halogen bulbs are incandescent bulbs, just like the typical B and R30 flood bulbs. Halogen bulbs, however, are filled with a special gas that actually rebuilds the filament and provides longer average life than normal incandescent bulbs. They come in different shapes and sizes for various different uses. The Sylvania PAR30 lights are flood shaped with the heavy, thick glass that is common to many medium to large sized halogen bulbs. PAR stands for parabolic aluminized reflector. These types of bulbs will provide you with a high light output, a more white-colored light (a higher color temperature - approximately 3000K), and longer life than normal R or BR reflectors. That is why the halogen are many times used in energy saving lighting situations because they are more efficient in their light production. The PAR30 is a good direct replacement for the incandescent BR30 lamps that have been used in track lighting or small recessed cans over the past decades. The typical wattage of the old BR30 is 65 watts, and so replacing them with a 50 watt PAR30 will save 15 watts and deliver better lighting at the same time.

The PAR30 are a medium sized flood bulb and are not as large as the PAR38 halogen flood bulbs that you might use in an outdoor lighting situation. You can tell what kind of PAR lamp you have by measuring the distance across the widest point of the bulb. The number after 'PAR' represents the number of eighths of an inch the bulb diameter would be. Therefore, PAR30 light bulbs are 3 3/4 inches across.  They have standard bases and are able to be used indoors or outdoors. This means they can be directly exposed to rain or snow and still function normally and they do not need to be covered by a light fixture. This makes the PAR30 lamps very versatile and quite handy to use many kinds of light fixtures.

Sylvania calls their halogen line Capsylite and within that category are many different configurations of bulbs. The variety ranges from standard halogen floods to bipin halogen to the full spectrum variety called Daylight Plus.  Whatever the lighting need, there probably is a Sylvania lamp that will work correctly in that situation.  eLightBulbs.com is an online light bulb company that offers the entire Sylvania catalog for purchase over the web. So whether you need halogen, fluorescent or HID sources, we'll have the right bulb for your need. In this case, we have the breadth of the entire offering of Sylvania PAR30 light bulbs.  We have a large inventory of halogen bulbs for nearly every type of light fixture in the field.  If you need help identifying your light, our customer service representatives can help you determine what you have.
