For years, people have wanted to get a more natural color in the R40 flood
light bulbs they use. These are the large size flood lights that are often
used in recessed lighting. Now, there are large sized R40 lamps which meet the
needs of recessed light fixtures which could use some whiter light. The
is considered a large flood used in 6 inch downlights, making it one of the most versatile
lamps on the market.
If you have a retail store and use standard R40 lamps, then consider using these
natural light versions. They will give you a whiter light because the
Neodymium coating filters out most of the offensive yellow color that most
people don't like. In a store, it will help bring out true color like no
other kind of incandescent lamp. How would you like to have an increased
color depth to the products you sell or things you feature in your home?
Most people prefer having a more colorful environment, and there's nothing like
natural daylight that brings out true color. Reds will appear redder and
blues will seem bluer. That's the effect that these bulbs
can do for you in any space you use them. There are several kinds of daylight flood light
bulb types which include the regular household base. There are the R20,
R30, PAR38, PAR30 as well as the R40 full spectrum flood bulbs we're talking about here.
The 90 watt PAR38 full spectrum halogen is sometimes a good replacement for the
150 watt R40 to save energy while still being able to get the daylight color.
The R40 full spectrum flood light bulbs also have a longer life than the ones
you've gotten in the past, generally about 30% longer life. The wattage is
the standard 150 watt version, so these make a good direct replacement for the
existing ones you might have now. We have the Westinghouse ReaLite 150R40/NEO which is the daylight version made by them. Simply screw them
into any place where you have the standard R40 and you will see the difference
that natural lighting can make in your home or office. And because it's a
150 watt lamp, it's going to be very bright and illuminate well. Speaking
of the office, you might want to consider using 5000K fluorescents to brighten
up your office. You can get fluorescent tubes in almost any color you want
including the more desirable full spectrum light. The full spectrum has
special phosphors that give it a similar color to daylight or natural sunshine.
It produces light the way our eyes naturally use it, giving better visual acuity
and reducing problems like eyestrain.
In the home, you'll like using the R40 full spectrum flood light bulbs in places
like your kitchen and bathroom. It's the standard size that most people
use in their home, and the size has been a favorite for many years, probably
because of the inexpensive price. The reason they're especially good in
areas like kitchens and bathrooms is because of the white surfaces they usually have. This
makes those surfaces and areas appear whiter, giving a cleaner, white look.
There are homes which have small track lighting which highlights pictures or
figurines or decorative elements, and the R40 full spectrum flood light can also make those
items look better. It really makes your home look better compared to using
yellow colored incandescent light. If you have any of the areas described
here, please buy some of these light bulbs for your home, you'll be glad you
