R20 flood light bulbs with 130 volt for longer life special track lighting. Sylvania or Westinghouse brand.

One of the most common small flood lights in use today are the incandescent R20 flood.  While they're not unusual from the standpoint of what they look like, there are a variety of wattages to choose from.  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 BR25 or BR30 flood.  Sometimes it's just the only thing that will fit in certain fixtures.  The wattages are 30, 50, 75 or 100 watt and sometimes called the 30R20, 50R20, 75R20 or 100R20 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 lighting.  Some people don't like them because they sometimes have a shorter life, but that is only true for the cheap ones you might buy in a hardware store.  When compared to regular incandescent lighting, ours are longer lasting because they are 130 volt if you choose them from our store that way.

For most installations, they are used in recessed lighting with a 4 inch or 3 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 R20 flood light bulbs can be used are endless and sometimes includes elevator lighting as a popular option.  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 R20 is 2.5 inches across the face if you're measuring it for identification purposes and they have a standard medium base too.

Many businesses are looking for ways to save energy with lighting and one of the best ways is to replace these with compact fluorescent or halogen.  Obviously, compact fluorescent flood light bulbs are the perfect choice to replace higher wattage incandescent R20 flood light bulbs and save energy.  Just look for areas where you might use R20 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.  Be aware 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. If you replace these with a halogen, then using them on a dimmer would be fine.  There is a nice reduction going to a halogen source and you will get the added benefit of getting better lighting as well.

Remember that there are few types of incandescent R20 flood light bulbs, we describe some of the most common used in home and commercial lighting here.  The brands we have are the Sylvania and Westinghouse versions.  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.
