R30 compact fluorescent reflector flood light bulbs for to save energy and get better lighting, good brands for your lighting needs.

One of the great things about these lamps is now the smaller size while still getting the light output you need for any number of lighting tasks. Up until recently, getting energy savings in an R30 reflector flood light was difficult because of size considerations, the lamp inside was generally too big.  When it comes to lighting up a home, office or retail store, R30 compact fluorescent flood light bulbs tend to be the ones chosen for recessed cans or track lighting when energy savings is a consideration. They are chosen most often because of the great light output and good color along with energy efficiency as well. When compared to incandescent lighting, these are longer lasting, using much less energy making them a perfect choice for almost any type of lighting. There are several kinds of compact 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 R30 is a suitable replacement for 65BR30 lamps, which are probably the most common flood light in use today. There is the larger 5 inch size which is the R40 and that is also a very common light, but has been generally phased out of many new installations.

With the advent of higher electrical costs, many businesses are looking for ways to save energy with lighting.  Obviously, R30 compact fluorescent flood light bulbs are a great choice to replace higher wattage incandescent flood lamps and save energy.  Just look for areas where you might use incandescent light bulbs and find the right replacement on our web site.  The most typical light fixture these are used in would be the 5" or 6" recessed can light used in entry ways or general lighting. You will find a great reduction in your electrical bill while still getting the amount of light that you want.  When replacing your outdated incandescent with compact fluorescent, make sure that the light is not on a dimmer.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.

As with all fluorescent bulbs, they rely on ballasts inside of the fixtures or units to make them work. The ballast is important because it is specific for each type of lamp.  You can't change from one type of fluorescent to another without changing the ballast in most cases.  Most of the time though the ballast in the lamp are matched electrically and so it's good to make sure the ballast you have is the right one for the lamp you choose. Typically, R30 compact fluorescent floods come in one piece units.  With the one-piece configuration, you simply throw it away when you're done with it.  This is good for home users because you don't have to determine what has gone bad when it finally does get to the end of its life.

Remember that there are many types of R30 compact fluorescent 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 or linear types of fluorescent lamps used in commercial lighting.  Whatever type you choose or have, you will be saving energy while getting the most light you can for your money.  We have a large inventory of fluorescent bulbs for nearly every type of light fixture in the field.  If you need help identifying a bulb, our customer service representatives can help you determine what you have.
